This is not directly related to openHAB but certainly to DIY home automation in general.
Looking for recommendations to steer me in the right direction – what development environment are you using for your ESP8266/ESP32 projects?
I got into microcontrollers less than three months ago, but as an experienced programmer I outgrew the Arduino IDE within hours.
I spent some time trying to install Eclipse and the Arduino plug-in, but couldn’t get it working.
I then tried Sloeber, and I did get that working, so I settled on that and have been using it ever since.
Today, I discovered that the person who developed Sloeber actually abandoned it before I even started using it! Oops.
It works for me right now, but being abandonware it’s going to get long in the tooth eventually. Maybe it’s better to change sooner rather than later, before I get too attached to it.
Is anyone using PlatformIO?
Do you have anything else to recommend?
