Oh absolutely. For someone like me, with no experience on Python or flashing with a Python toolchain (I am an Arduino guy) Zerynth has already surpassed my expectations.
What I have now is this in Arduino:
duration = pulseIn(echoPin, HIGH);
// convert the time into a distance
cm = (duration/2) / 29.1;
This gets me a centimeter accuracy distance, which works fine.
Ideally I could use the same structure in Python, but am unable to get that pulseIn to work.
I will certainly share the final system once I get it done, so that I can use the ESP32 to read messages from a website on WLAN, watch if someone comes closer than 60cm, then show them the message on an LCD and morse it out visually and aurally, just as the Morse Moai now does. It has no Internet access, so that’s why I am moving to ESP2 and Python.
