Couple quick comments from what little I read through tonight:
1.Just wanted to comment I thought this course would help with instructions to program the ESP-01 (much more complicated then programming the ESP-32 & ESP-12).I hope maybe you can add these instructions to the course in the future?
2.On page 57 you start by saying you’ll be using the ESP32 DEVKIT V1 DOIT board, but then on page 62 & 63 you say the ESP-12E is the most practical and that you highly recommend we use that for programming. If I didn’t read before proceeding, I would have bought the ESP32 DEVKIT V1 DOIT. Why are you recommending the ESP-12E but showing all your examples on the ESP32 instead?
- We didn’t include instructions for ESP-01 because some models of ESP-01 don’t have enough memory to run the firmware. There are builds of the ESP8266 firmware tailored for modules with only 512kbytes of flash. However, certain features are disabled to get the firmware down to this size. So, we didn’t include that. However, if you want to upload code to ESP-01, you need an FTDI programmer and connect RX-TX, TX-RX ang GPIO0 to GND.
- We recommend using the ESP32 DEVKIT V1 DOIT board because it has more memory. However, in case you want to use an ESP8266, we recommend the ESP8266-12E. We give instructions throughout the eBook for both boards. We’ll try to make that clear in the next eBook update.
I hope this answers your questions.
I would also like to use an ESP8266 01 with a small memory. Which firmware is available for this?
