We’re pleased to announce the second release of the Pymakr IDE (Beta Release2.0) which now includes both Windows and Linux and is available for download.
Configuring the built-in REPL console:
After connecting to your WiPy/LoPy device via WiFi, follow these steps:
1. On the main window’s top menu click on: Settings > Preferences
2. On the left hand menu of the new dialog select MicroPython
3. On device fill in the IP address, then the user and the password. For a WiPy or LoPy
with default settings you would use are: 192.168.1.1, micro, python.
Hint: you can also use a hostname instead of an IP number if you’ve already assigned one inside your local network.

Just in case you missed our first note, here’s a little bit about the Pymakr IDE:
Pymakr gets your code from your PC to your board is the one and only tool you’ll ever need to develop on the WiPy and LoPy.
It’s a fully featured IDE that connects automatically to your Pycom devices via Telnet Server or serial port, runs your code on the fly, manages the internal file system, synchronizes your code instantly and runs it with just one click. It also takes care of firmware upgrades and includes a built in console that interfaces with the MicroPython REPL. Features code completion, static analysis, PEP8 style checking and a built-in interactive prompt.
