Hello dear @vshymanskyy , did you change the directory infrastructure of the library?. In this version 0.5.2, i can only find “main” blynk library and missing the other libraries like BlynkESP8266_Lib or Time and without the tools directory…
Is this ok? Shall we need to manually remove BlynkESP8266_Lib ot what?
Thanks and Best Regards,
Mike Kranidis

No sorry it looks like the zip didn’t get updated. I’ll fix it soon. Thanks for pointing this out

UPD: Fixed. Thanks @mikekgr

Any chance the continuous disconnection loop in the JS library will be addressed?
I also sent a PR to the github repo and there is also a second PR there waiting :wink:

Does this fix the maxed out CPU load on 1 core of the Raspberry Pi when running Blynk Python library?
I’ve done “pip install blynk-library-python” which I think it should update to the latest but I’m still getting the overloaded CPU core. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you for taking the time to develop this library.

@malvar I ran into some issues where I managed to install multiple versions of the Blynk Python library… search for and make sure you have removed all references of the libraries before reinstalling.

I deleted everything and reinstalled but still same issue.
What did work though was inserting this line “time.sleep(0.01)”
in “sleep_from_until” in Blynk python library and now my CPU load is less than 2% for the Blynk client.:smiley:
