UPDATE YOUR BOOKMARKS!!!
We have an issue that there is no way around as of yet.
I have done all I can to try and prevent this from happening.
We are going to be losing the .com, .org and .de domains.
We have not been able to contact the original author of EventGhost
(the person that owns those domains) to redirect them to the new web server.
I set in motion when we first moved a redirection from the old server to the new server.
I also put in markers so that search engines would see this change and update any pointers
they have. We still have the .net domain for the production site. and the .rocks for the test site.
For the past few months you have been getting redirected to the .net site if you used one of the 3
domains mentioned above. I just wanted to tell everyone so they can make any changes needed.
It is not possible to answer briefly and clearly.
ATtiny85 is the basis Digispark so it can not be "real" Arduino (this is based on the MCU of mega - as ATmega328 and the like).
However, there is Arduino extension for a "tiny" series - it's just Digispark. Here's how to do it.
Development of Digispark-LCD, of course, I did in the Arduino environment.
Maybe your question is thought otherwise: Digispark-LCD can be ported to the "real" Arduino?
I think it definitely can be. But the charm of simplicity and cheapness Digispark solution would be lost.
On the other hand - it could be much "smarter" and with fewer restrictions (for example text length).
the esp can be used in 2 ways. it can be flashed directly using the Arduino IDE or by flashing it with MicroPython using the ESPTool for python (my personal favorite) and use it standalone without any other controller needed. Or you can hook it up using serial RX/TX and use an AT command set to tell it what to do over serial. and I know you are familiar with what an AT command set is.. tho the commands are different the principal is the same. just remember when you were using that 2400 baud modem and having to key in the AT commands to control the thing.
The ESP is actually a pretty robust micro controller. up to 16 meg flash, 32bit 80mhz RISC processor can be overclocked to 160 (one of the features i like about MicroPython this can be dynamically controlled), 160k ram.
I think you would have a lot of fun with these things if you were using MicroPython.
it would be cool to make a LCD display that can have data sent to it over wifi. But this could also open the doors for making touch panels that EG controls. all the ESP would be is a "translator" EG would be used as the "brains" and send off the data to be displayed on the touchscreen and the esp could send back something like the x, y of where the screen has been touched. I am not sure if a really super nice display could be achieved with the ram being as limited as it is. but it's a thought
