I've just added a new sample code for Arduino that connect to minitel websocket servers.
That is an other way to (re)discover the minitel experience ! (see previous log about Socketel)
Compared to Socketel :
- it is written in C (instead of micropython), so it boot quickly,
- it is more stable thanks to the very nice websocket library available for Arduino. Some bugs have been observed with socketel seemingly due to memory issues,
- it does not have a user interface for minitel, wifi and server configuration. so you need to recompile with your own parameters.
Conveniently, you can connect to teletel or 3615.de which are "kiosk service" which provide access to other minitel services.

An application has been developped to enable visit minitel webservices without coding, iin the hope to enable the greatest number to (re)discover the minitel experience !
The application is named Socketel and is written in micropython.
Here are some screenshots of the user interface :

After SSH, Telnet client software example for Arduino IDE is available on project repo.
This software can be used to access the Minitel service hosted by teletel.org which provides an authentic minitel experience via telnet. Many thanks to him !
There are other minitel services available via websocket: Sample code coming soon
We can connect to BBS as well, but I have to admit that it is slow and graphically limited.
Here are some screenshots:
