First Stretch Goal Reached
Thanks everyone! We're now 250% funded, which means that we reached our CC3000 WiFi stretch goal. Now, when you get your Espruino board you'll be able to plug a CC3000 WiFi module in and start web-enabling your Espruino project right away!
Over the next 10 days we'll spend some time on this, and we hope to have a demo for you before the end of the KickStarter!
New Stretch Goals
To celebrate, we're adding two new Stretch goals:
£70,000 - OpenWRT package
£60,000 - NPM Node.js module loading
After our recent work, Espruino now supports loading modules from the SD card - so you can quickly add libraries to make using new bits of hardware even easier. However if we hit this goal we'll be adding the ability to load node.js modules from the internet to both Espruino itself (with the CC3000 WiFi module) and the Espruino Web UI, so you'll be able to load node.js modules from the internet regardless of whether your Espruino board has a CC3000 module or not!
We're still hard at work on Espruino - we've been updating the Web UI to add some features and make it a bit easier to use, adding more documentation, adding CommonJS (node.js) style module/library support and testing Espruino's Graphics library out with the small, low power Nokia 5110 LCDs.
Several of you have asked about whether it's possible to add extra boards to your pledge or to get a bigger starter kit with a few Espruino boards and some Wireless modules. We are working on this and we hope to have got a new reward online (as well as some pictures) by the end of this week.
