  • NodeMCU with Lightning Detector

    Anyone try to connect this Lightning Detector to a NodeMCU:

    https://www.playingwithfusion.com/pr...ew.php?pdid=22

    When I compile the sketch for the NodeMCU I get the following error:

    exit status 1
    error compiling for board NodeMCU 1.0(ESP.12E Modules)

    If I switch to the Arduino Mega it compiles, loads, and runs fine. Any suggestions as to why it won't work with the NodeMCU?

    i got s similar error yesterday with a standard NodeMCU board and the only way i could get it to work was by downloading the latest arduino and it worked first try (there were some notes saying there was a bug for the NodeMCU boards that was fixed in the newer versions)

      also I found it seems you can't have a NodeMCU board as board 1 (it won't connect)? i just added board 1 with nothing on it and put the NodeMCU as board 2 and it worked fine (was on a linux box)

        Thanks for the response..
        When you state "...Downloading the latest Arduino", are I you referring to the latest Arduino IDE??

          I have no problems with a nodeMCU as board 1.

            Just to close out this thread.....The supplied sketch with the Lightning Detector has a function the NodeMCU doesn't support: #include "avr/pgmspace.h". I tried many work-arounds, to replace the function with other code, but no success.

            So I switched to an Arduino Uno, and the device works fine.

              If you have the SPI version please remove the old and the attached modified Library and get back to me. It should work on the Nodemcu. It compiles here but I do not have one to test.

                Greig;

                I loaded the modified Library. Below are the results from trying to run the sketch 2 ways. The first is when I insert the sketch into the NodeMCU API. The second is just the sketch stand-alone.

                1) The following error message is when I try to compile the SPI sketch within the NodeMCU API:

                Arduino: 1.8.1 (Windows 10), Board: "NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module), 80 MHz, 115200, 4M (3M SPIFFS)"

                exit status 1

                2) The following error message is when I try to compile the sketch by itself:

                Arduino: 1.8.1 (Windows 10), Board: "NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module), 80 MHz, 115200, 4M (3M SPIFFS)"

                #include "avr/pgmspace.h"

                exit status 1

                Any suggestions??

                  Rick,

                  Sorry I missed your post. Did you get the new modified Library I attached as I can not see it and it works fine here? Try from Here

                  If not open the PWFusion_AS3935.h file that should be located in \Documents\Arduino\libraries\sen39001_arduino_spi_r00 and change the top section:

                  Code:
                  #include "Arduino.h"
                  #include "avr/pgmspace.h"
                  #include "util/delay.h"
                  #include "stdlib.h"
                  #include "SPI.h"
                  to be

                  Code:
                  #include "Arduino.h"
                  #if defined(ESP8266)
                    #include <pgmspace.h>
                   #define _delay_ms(ms) delayMicroseconds((ms) * 1000)
                  #else
                  #include "avr/pgmspace.h"
                  #include "util/delay.h"
                  #endif
                  #include "stdlib.h"
                  #include "SPI.h"
                  save it and compile again.

                    Thank you for the code. I made the change, and inserted the sketch into the NodeMCU API. The good news it now compiles, and loads! But when it executes I get continuous WatchDog Timer (WDT) reset:

                    I know the code runs clean on an Arduino uno. Is this another NodeMCU code difference compared to the Uno?

                        Rick,

                        Not sure how I can test this without the unit but I will investigate more and see what I can find.
