    My feature request is to have the ability to upload API sketches over ethernet; it would require something like the Ariadne bootloader but would make it so much easier to update difficult to access Arduino boards.

    Can you add a feature where you automatically detect the serial port. I guess you could query Windows for all available COM ports. Then you connect to all of those ports and send a message to reply with their board name (which would have to be modified when downloading the sketch). If somebody didn't modify the board name than auto detection is turned off. And there might be the need for an option in the plugin configuration to enable/disable the auto connection with some note that if you enable it you have to modify the board name. Maybe there is a better way to do this but that would be a great feature in my opinion.

    I would still love to see support for the Map function for analog inputs as i use pressure sensors on my water and air lines and it is hard getting the correct value with simple math functions

    Feature request for a counter running in the Arduino, with option to reset from HS and option to define the read-out time (similar to readout of analog input pins). Thank you.

    This is not something I have looked at. I have had trouble with the UNO running low on memory and lack of pins for the price. I would advise using the NodeMCU for WIFI connection with the Beta Version of the plugin for HS3 or there will be full support for them in HS4.

    Greig,

    Is it possible being warned if a plugin update will demand to upload sketches again ? Before to install it, I mean.

    I agree as it is always late at night when i update then i have to run around updating boards for the next 30 min
    but i think a better option would be for the plugin to still work with the out of date version (it already knows what version the board has so it could just load a translator file or use the settings from that version of the plugin) but say mismatch in the log so you can update it when you have time but i don't know if this would be possible in the code so just an idea at least until the node MCU boards are updated automatically OTA from the plugin:-)

    I will do my best to add this to the release notes when it is required.

    Any plans for "sleep" modes in the NodeMCU application. I realize that I can use the NodeMCU API mode, but so far I haven't needed to go that route. The board mode, at least for the NodeMCU, has been able to handle most of what I needed.

    PWM pins can be turned on, off or set to anything in between. It would be great if there is an additional state to set the pin to the last setting. Let's assume it was at 80% and then the pin is turned off. It would be nice if I could send a command to set it to the last state. This could be useful for lights, motors, etc. For instance my light switches have a state 255 which sets them to the last dimming level.

    The plugin supports PWM with fading on native PWM pins only. There are so many PWM applications and in my case I need considerably more PWM pins than built into the Arduino. Hence, it would be great if the plugin allowed for software emulated PWM pins including fading on other pins than native PWM pins.

    It would be great to get the number of input and output devices associated with a particular board. I have an Arduino that controls up to 8 strip lights through 8 pins. However, there might be fewer than 8 strip lights connected to the Arduino.

    For each actual strip light connected to the Arduino I have several inputs and outputs configured in the plugin. I don't want to query FromHS for strip lights that don't actually exists and I don't want to send status updated for strips lights that don't exist. However, the only way for me to know how many strip lights I really have is if the plugin can tell me how many inputs and outputs I have.

    Yes, I could create another output where I can define the number of strip lights. However, I am sure there are many other scenarios where knowing the inputs/outputs is important and it really just takes two bytes (and some code) to make that information accessible.

    If you are interested in other models for the wifi functionality, there are several models of arduinos that work well. I've used the esp8266 nodeMCU platform extensively and it works great. I've also tested the ESP32 and it worked well in initial testing but I haven't used it in production.

    Also, the nodeMCUs can be had for < $10 which appears to be less cost than the MKR Wifi 1010 @ $35. Maybe there are some other differences that make the MKR Wifi 1010 worth the extra cost.
