The ESP32. How to get started quick.

We’ve been doing a lot of work recently on the incredible ESP32 microcontroller from Espressif. If you haven’t heard of it – it’s a really cool, cheap bit of kit. We’ll be posting a guide on it soon.

Setting up a development environment for the ESP32 can take a while. Espressif have done a great job with ESP-IDF, but they don’t include a starter Eclipse project, which is something we wanted. Having syntax highlighting, a 1-click build system and GIT integration really means we can get coding at a rate of knots.

So here’s our ESP32 Eclipse template. It contains all the settings to allow you to use the timesaving features of Eclipse, with ESP-IDF.

Check it out:

To get started, see the README

Let us know what you think by commenting here, or raising any issues on Github.

We’ll be posting more information relating to ESP-IDF over the coming weeks, and putting together a series of articles to kickstart your IoT project.
