MySensors with Atmega8(L) ?
I want to control two relays using MySensors and nRF24L01+. But I wanted to do that using a ATmega8(L), it has 8Kb of flash, instead a 32Kb from mega328 of arduino. Is that possible ?
There has been some success using the ATtiny85 which also has 8kbytes flash. Search the forum for ATtiny.
you will probably need to hack&cut a library to reduce a required flash
I would recommend you to reconsider usage of atmega8, otherwise you will need to spend a lot of time to fit any upgrade
I had such an experience. I was translating Mysensors to Atmel Studio and that allows me to fit sensors & clocks into atmega8.
But as Mysensors is under fast development it became too complicated to follow.
@axillent Yeah, I was with this same intention to port MySensors to Atmel Studio and mega8. Anyway, I think it will be less complicated if i use the common mega328p as Arduino.

I did not test on HW, I just tried to compile it (DimmableLEDActuator):
Impressive, the same thing will work for an attiny84/85 ?
