I am currently working with BLE beacons -only iBeacons for now- with Espressif’s
esp-idf libraries. The aim is to use the ESP32 as a gateway to published
detected beacons to an MQTT broker. It was surprisingly easy and I will write
something about that when the
code will be more polished.
Anyway, by curiosity and to speed up development, I wanted to try microPython port to ESP32, and I did. Unfortunately, BLE support is not yet reliable enough and a lot of advertisements were lost with 4 to 6 beacons. This post is to keep track of my work and, hopefully, use in the future when microPython port will be more reliable :-)
