[PD] LibPd on microcontroller

has anyone experience in using LibPd on a microcontroller?
I wanna try to run some rather basic DSP code on this guy here:
There are some existing Arduino/C++ frameworks and I thought I could either write my own small DSP library in C++ or use LibPd.
I understood that LibPd is completely independed of audio drivers and external libraries and since it's plain C code it should work on everything that can run code. However, I have only encountered LibPd in the context of other applications (processing, openFrameworks) and mobile devices so far. Do you think it could work on an ESP8266? I'm also a bit concerned about efficiency, as computation power is rather limited:
"ESP8266EX is embedded with Tensilica L106 32-bit micro controller (MCU), which features extra low
power consumption and 16-bit RSIC. The CPU clock speed is 80MHz. It can also reach a maximum
value of 160MHz. Real Time Operation System (RTOS) is enabled. Currently, only 20% of MIPS has
been occupied by the WiFi stack, the rest can all be used for user application programming and
