  • OpenBK7231T_App

    Open source firmware (Tasmota/Esphome replacement) for BK7231T, BK7231N, BL2028N, T34, XR809, W800/W801, W600/W601 and BL602

  • I've found many of the devices can now be flashed with https://github.com/openshwprojects/OpenBK7231T_App

  • tuya-cloudcutter

    A tool that disconnects Tuya IoT devices from the cloud, allowing them to run completely locally.

  • tasmotizer

    ESP... The time has come to... Tasmotize!

  • I tried micropython, liked it, an developed and operated a few home automation devices with it. But changing anything after a few months was a pain - what flashing tool did I use, how did that detail work, etc. Now I run around 15 Tasmota devices in my household and would never look back. The initial flash, depending on the device at hand, can be trivial (e.g. using https://github.com/tasmota/tasmotizer on a device with builtin USB connectivity or with a USB-serial cable) or a bit less so (like the somewhat involved OTA reflashing process https://github.com/yaourdt/mgos-to- for the very handy and inexpensive Shelly devices). In any case, after that it all becomes easy, with web-based configuration, OTA updates, "fleet managament" software like https://github.com/danmed/TasmoBackup, and plug&play integratiom with Home Assistant. If somebody integrated micropython into Tasmota for cases where the countless configuration options and libraries integrated into Tasmota don't suffice, it would be perfect. But meamwhile there is a similar scripting language available within Tasmota for ESP32 devices so I can live with that.
