The problem is caused by the too long message. When you send data with the IOTA Python library (PyOTA) to the Tangle, it first converts the unicode message into trytes, then puts these trytes into the signature/message field of a transaction. When the converted trytes are too long to fit in one transaction, it splits them across two transactions. Now comes ...

you can find a #testnet channel on the new IOTA Discord https://discord.gg/5spymQ, ask there and you will probably find people to connect with. There is a #testnet channel on the IOTA Slack also, but this tchat will be closed and people are currently migrating on the Discord.

You can use the IOTA testnet, simply by connecting your application to a public testnet node. It is designed to be lighter and quicker than the IOTA mainnet (transactions are confirmed more quickly), but parallel to the mainnet in almost all other respects. IOTA developers and community members will be happy to give you free test iotas to use; see the linked ...

I don't know if there has been a CURL transition phase on devnet since I have not been involved that deeply at that time. ...

While I thought this looked like an issue with the iota.lib.js, it appears that it is actually a problem with the testnet node I was using, https://testnet140.tangle.works:443. Switching to http://p103.iotaledger.net:14700 solves my issue. Update It appears that https://testnet140.tangle.works without the port is working while having the port results in ...

check this out: String name = instance.configuration.booling(Configuration.DefaultConfSettings.TESTNET) ? IRI.TESTNET_NAME : IRI.MAINNET_NAME; return GetNodeInfoResponse.create(name, IRI.VERSION, from src/main/java/com/iota/iri/service/API.java i.e. if you are looking at a list of nodes with their getNodeInfo data you might see: ...
