BIPES is an Open Source Project developed in partnership by Federal University of Sao Carlos (UFSCar) and University of Sao Paulo (USP). It has a General Public Licence (GPL) and is based / integrates several other open tools, such as Google Blockly and others.
Block based User Interface and Code Generator
Main BIPES code. Source codes are available at github:https://github.com/gTamanaka/bipes
Current online interface - beta:
Server side compilation tool
Optional code, to allow the blocks to be sent to a server, compiled and flashed to an embedded device as native firmware, such as Arduino or ESP8266.
## in development ##
Optional code, allowing the execution of a Python Interactive console over a WebSocket connection. Using this server, the blocks are automatically translated into Python code, sent to a Linux based device, and executed from the blocks.
Source codes are available at github:https://github.com/rafaelaroca/SocketServerWebREPL
Optional code, which allows a USB device, such as ESP32, ESP8266 or mBed boards to be controlled / prorammed from the BIPES web application. Basically, this software receives a WebSocket connection from the browser and translates into USB-Serial communication. In the future, this will also integrate actions to bufn firmware using esptool and avrdude.
