I am participating in the development of a mesh library called painlessMesh. It is not based on ESP-MESH but on Coopdis easyMesh implementation. As his project seems to be frozen we have fixed a few bugs and implemented some new features.
It's available on https://gitlab.com/BlackEdder/painlessMesh
It offers clock synchronization to be able to execute tasks in different nodes with a common time base. Time accuracy is about 1 ms or even better.
It allows send point to point and broadcast messages.
If you like it feel free to try. Some simple examples are included. Please, any comment, enhancement request is welcomed.
Can U help me please?
You may open an issue in repository if you need more help.
I would like to use the Painlessmesh for my project but i am in doubt whether and how it can work. I feel i am lacking something fundamental in my knowledge.
description of project:
On a PC ( mac,Linux,..) i want to write a javafx application that speaks to a mesh network of 64 Esp8266.
I do not want the mesh network to take all ip addresses, 1 would be ok.
When i use the startHere example, the ESP sets up a network with ip address that is not in the range of my PC.
How can i address this 1st node from withing my java pc application (and also eventually subsequent nodes)?
I would like to use the Painlessmesh lib for my project. I have 64 ESP8266 that i want to form a mesh and i want to be able to communicate ( broadcast and single) from a pc appication written in javafx.
When i use the starthere sample then the nodes communicate with each other but i cannot communicate from teh pc.
the IP is in another range than my own network.
How can i communicate with the mesh? Is this possible?
I would suppose one node has an ip in the range of my own network but then again, how to addres the different nodes if i have no ip.
Thanks in advance
