Newbie here. But I’ve done a lot of Arduino basic programming. I purchased a number of Spark Cores, hoping that my existing Arduino code would work. I was frustrated to learn that dropping in the Spark in place of my Arduino Nano’s was a seemingly insurmountable task without major reprogramming. The biggest problem was that my existing project utilizes 3 SoftwareSerial devices (RTC, openLog, and a serial LCD). I’m not sure how to make all of these work with the Spark.
1 - Is there a SoftwareSerial equivalent yet for the Spark Core? Anyone working on?
2 - Is there an easy way to pull RTC information from the network via the Spark Core, and avoid the RTC module?
3 - Same for openLog; is there an easy way to log data to a file on the network instead of using a microSD?
