I would like to start using Arduino 2.0 for projects with ESP8266 and ESP32.
In most of my “old” projects with Arduino 1.8.15 I am using the tools “ESP8266 LittleFS Data Upload” and “ESP32 Sketch Data Upload” to upload the html, js and css files – a very convenient and helpful feature.
Is anybody aware of wether this tools are available and working in the Arduino 2.0 version?
If “yes” – were can I download them and how to inteagrte them?
Thanks for answers and support!
The “ESP32 Sketch Data Upload” was provided as a plug-in to Arduino IDE 1.8.x. As the 2.0 is a complete rewrite (Using Electron instead of Java) it may take some time for people to create new plug-ins for it. This post from the Arduino team should give more info.
As Steve mentioned, those tools were not developed for Arduino 2.0 yet.
Thanks guys for the quick answer – means that I have to stick to Arduino IDE 1.8.x for the next period of time 🙁
Alternatively, you might want to try using VS Code + PlatformIO. It’s a great way to program the ESP32 boards. Here are some tutorials:
- Getting Started with VS Code and PlatformIO IDE for ESP32 and ESP8266
- ESP32 with VS Code and PlatformIO: Upload Files to Filesystem (SPIFFS)
- VS Code Workspaces with ESP32 and ESP8266 Projects
But there’s nothing wrong with using Arduino IDE 1.8.X. I also use it.
