NodeMcu and Heap utilization: Great improvements

Since I saw that the MQTT client was ported into the NodeMCU firmware that allows the ESP8266 to be programmed in the Lua language, and knowing the Heap issues that this firmware has had in the past, I gave it a again a try to see how things have improved.

As we can see in the bellow graph, things, are not totally solved but it’s waaaay better…


This means that, at least for my sample code, things are quite stable now. Not a single reboot since the 24th of January. Not bad. A new stability milestone has been achieved making the NodeMcu firmware a firm contender to building applications on the esp8266 without the steep native SDK learning curve.
