MicroPython and blockly type programming e.g. BIPES

I’m following a couple of Python courses … one of the courses is part of this forum.

My goal is the following:

  • I’m interested in IoT subjects (I follow(-ed) 2 IoT courses on Udemy).
  • In the past I followed a basic Electronics (refresher) and 2 Arduino courses.

What I learned

  • I dislike Arduino - C++ programming (time consuming - not my type)
  • I dislike Arduino Uno - Mega etc. boards (WiFi-Bluetooth and other missing options)
  • I favour ESP32/NodeMCU 8266 boards.
  • I favour blockly type programming (to produce the initial code) and refine the code thereafter.
  • I’m currently testing:
    BIPES Project - Beta2” [BIPES MicroPython]


  • Are there more forum members interested in this topic ?
  • What is your experience so far … do you have any suggestions for a (learning) way forward on
    this topic.

BIPES looks amazing.

I’m very interested, I have a raspberry pi and accessory sitting next to me ready to be worked on.

My experience with MicroPython is greatly lacking. But my python knowledge is pretty good.

Hi … thanks for responding … my journey into IoT and blockly type Programming has just started.

Incidentally BIPES has started a new forum (it’s in the very initial startup phase) … can I invite you to participate in the this Forum.

I can explain to you my path forward in IoT and the courses I am following in learning the IoT and Python/MicroPython topic

Perhaps you can share your approach.

Hope to see you there

I would love to join the forum.

Please register at the forum:


Let me know if you have any issues … the forum is rather new and might have some start-up issues.



In case your interested.

I was informed (by the BIPES Moderator) that the BIPES - MicroPython part was based on the documentation in the MicroPython Forum NodeMCY-8266 Website documentation.

In case you are interested:


There are also MicroPython references for various other boards.

BTW Do you know if this topic is currently in the correct section … or should it be moved.

Are you a student or part of the forum moderators?


Could you please help and register with the BIPES Forum … it would be of great help.

I suspect something is incorrect with the login/registration of this new forum.

Your support will be appreciated.

Please note:

I’m only a hobbyist (absolute Rookie … but highly interested in block base programming and IoT - MicroPython related topics) and in no way involved with the BIPES App development team.


Thank you for the links. I was able to register successfully. I’m a student here and in my opinion the thread is in the right place.

I will spend some time today and learn BIPES.


I have an issue to find the register option(I have access by via another entry).

Can you send me a “snip/screenschot” where you found the option to register !.

Which time-zone are you in … I’m in Cyprus. (GMT +2)

Many Thanks

Here it is.

I’m in Vancouver (PST)

Ok … thanks (Well hidden though)

I will propose this will be repositioned to a more prominent place.

Hi…I was contemplating whether there is any order that permits me to run at least 2 engines simultaneously during independent. Or on the other hand in case there’s a way I could move my 4 engine drive train at the same time since I am simply restricted to moving 2 engines under “Drive Train”. I’m presently programming in Vex V5, Blockly in Robot Mesh. Additionally on the off chance that you have any suggestions of some other programming that is like Robot Mesh Blockly then it might be ideal if you would interface it or express the site.
