mpy-repl-tool 0.4


Transfer files via Python REPL (Read Eval Print Loop). This tool was developed to transfer files from and to MicroPython boards.

This is yet an other tool, there are now several similar tools but not all have the same features.

Key features of this one:

  • detect serial ports and micropython boards.
  • run temporary scripts.
  • pull get files and directories from the target filesystem.
  • push files and directories on the target filesystem.
  • mount target as filesytem (FUSE).
  • --interactive mode (terminal).
  • All of the above, and more, via the serial REPL connection to a micropython board.


Here is the output of python3 -m there --help:

usage: [-h] [-p PORT] [-b BAUDRATE] [-c COMMAND] [-i] [-v]
                   detect,run,ls,cat,pull,push,rm,mount} ...

Do stuff via the MicroPython REPL

positional arguments:
                        sub-command help
    detect              help locating a board
    run                 execute file contents on target
    ls                  list files
    cat                 print content of one file
    pull                file(s) to copy from target
    push                file(s) to copy onto target
    rm                  remove files on target
    mount               Make target files accessible via FUSE

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -p PORT, --port PORT  set the serial port
  -b BAUDRATE, --baudrate BAUDRATE
                        set the baud rate
  -c COMMAND, --command COMMAND
                        execute given code on target
  -i, --interactive     drop to interactive shell at the end
  -u USER, --user USER  response to login prompt
  -w PASSWORD, --password PASSWORD
                        response to password prompt
  -v, --verbose         show diagnostic messages, repeat for more
  --develop             show tracebacks on errors (development of this tool)

The -c option executes the given string after running all the actions. The -i option enters a miniterm session at the end of all other actions.

The tool automatically selects a USB port for communication, it may take the wrong one if multiple USB serial devices are connected. In that case, use there detect to list all devices and then -p PORT to specify the port to use on the other calls.

Use python3 -m there <action> --help to get help on sub-commands.
