Lua code

There are 3 .lua scripts in this device now.

init.lua

This file is launched by the firmware whit every NodeMCU FW boot / wakeup. This file checks if the device was waked up from deepsleep or not. If it was not wake from deepsleep it waits 10s before it check if app.lc file exists (in case of wakeup from deepsleep there is no 10s delay). If app.lc exists, it is launched.

print(" ")
print("Bgr init.lua v1.2")
_, reset_reason = node.bootreason()
print("Bootreason = " .. reset_reason)

appfilename = "app.lc"

print("Checking if " .. appfilename .. " exists")
if file.exists(appfilename) then
    --appfile exists
    print(appfilename .. " exists!")
    if reset_reason == 5 then 
        print("It was wake from deep sleep, no waiting, launching " .. appfilename)
        dofile (appfilename)
    else
        print("It wasnt wake from deepsleep, wait 10sec and then run " .. appfilename)    
        tmr.alarm(1,10000,0,function()
            dofile (appfilename)
        end)
    end

else
    --appfile does not exists
    print(appfilename .. " does not exist, nothing to launch, quitting...")
end

This is the main app, I compiled it into app.lc after upload to ESP.

cfg.lua

This file sets the WiFi name / password and othr options. Launch it just once - ESP will remember these options even after reboot / disconnect of power.
