First steps with jeedom and mqtt

i’ve installed jeedom in a debian virtual machine for test, and add the mqtt plugins, don’t forget to configure the user name and the password and configure the correct network interface

then create a mqtt receiver called « essaialarme » and an info called « test_bis »

from a PC inside the network of the jeedom workstation , type

mosquitto_pub -h -u "login" -P "password" -t essaialarme/pix -m 50

or using python and mosquitto module :

import mosquitto
def on_message(mosq, obj, msg):
	print "%-20s %d %s" % (msg.topic, msg.qos, msg.payload)
	mosq.publish('pong', "Thanks", 0)
def on_publish(mosq, obj, mid):
	print "published"
cli = mosquitto.Mosquitto()
cli.on_message = on_message
cli.on_publish = on_publish
cli.username_pw_set("login", password="password")
cli.connect("", 1883, 60)
cli.subscribe("essaialarme/test_bis", 0)
cli.publish ("essaialarme/test_bis","12345")



olimex A20 lime2 debian jessie image with 3.4.103 kernel, 2D & H264 acceleration

the current image available here
is a wheezy version limited to 4gb
– first, i copy the content of this image into a 16gb sdcard and resize the second partition
– boot the A20 LIME 2 card and copy the current kernel (3.4.90) configuration available in /proc/config.gz
– i cross compile the linux sunxi kernel (3.4.103) using the config and activate CONFIG_FHANDLE, because udev will request it during upgrade, for i use a linux mint 17 distro & this tuto
– install the new kernel & module into the sdcard
– edit the /etc/network/interface , to configure eth0 in dhcp and reboot
– edit the the source.list and replace each wheezy occurence by jessie
– apt-get update&&apt-get upgrade&&apt-get dist-upgrade (take many cup of coffee )
– install Xorg acceleration , using the
– install cedrus acceleration ,
– reboot
– test with mplayer / mpv & ffmpeg
have fun !

esp8266 flashing with nodemcu firmware (linux debian testing)

flashing the ESP-01 using node MCU

i use this thread

kadamski « lead the way »

download esp open sdk

first clone the esp open sdk and compile it standalone (take a while), without root because i have access to this
cd /opt/Espressif/nodemcu
git clone
cd /opt/Espressif/nodemcu/esp-open-sdk
take a coffee 🙂 after that modify your path env variable
export PATH=/opt/Espressif/nodemcu/esp-open-sdk/xtensa-lx106-elf/bin:$PATH
after that download nodemcu
cd /opt/Espressif/nodemcu/nodemcu-firmware
git clone

compile nodemcu

compile  nodemcu using the compiler
cd /opt/Espressif/nodemcu/nodemcu-firmware

upload nodemcu to the ESP-01

prepare the firmware and download it
cd /opt/Espressif/nodemcu/nodemcu-firmware elf2image app/.output/eagle/debug/image/ write_flash 0x00000 app/.output/eagle/debug/image/ 0x10000 app/.output/eagle/debug/image/
connect minicom to the card (9600baud 8N1) and then reboot the ESP , if its ok you will see that prompt
>NodeMCU 0.9.5 build 20150213 powered by Lua 5.1.4
lua: cannot open init.lua

upload init.lua file

works very well

ESP8266 Building Hello World Blink LED and Simple Web Server to drive the Relay and check Button status

Very nice tuto provided by olimex , can be use in parallel with the folowing one



ESP8266-EVB is small 57×50 mm board with Relay and Button which are connected to Internet via ESP8266 WIFI module.

ESP8266 has inside Xtensa106 processor and RF front end circuit, you do not need separate processor to drive the relay and read the button as ESP8266 can be programmed with custom code.

Here we will explain how to setup your tools and make your first project.

First you need to install your tools. It’s simple, just follow the instructions here:

There are just few small mistakes as some commands will require SUDO before them and some paths are not exactly same, but you have to follow the steps and once you get error to read and correct the problem.

Here is what we do on Ubuntu 14.04 LTE 64-bit:

sudo apt-get install git autoconf build-essential gperf bison flex texinfo libtool libncurses5-dev wget gawk libc6-dev-amd64 python-serial libexpat-dev sudo mkdir /opt/Espressif sudo chown…
