I got https://github.com/freetronics/DMD2 ported and it works great, you can connect an LED dot matrix display to the ESP8266 and make it draw simple graphics and messages, some level of PWM dimming is available (although I'm still having some brightness stability issues, need to get my scope and see what's happening I think.), I am now moving on to Time related code.

I'm now eyeing http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_libs_Time.html and http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_libs_DS1307RTC.html as next targets for porting (if anything even needs to be changed for them to work, probably just some #ifdefs to smooth out the differences)

Is porting these libraries a good idea? Does anybody want them? Are there better candidates? I ask before I put any potentially unnecessary effort into it or simply choose a poor library for porting.

"....using multiple URLs in the boards manager, separated with commas" : how can I select which one is used for compiling? For example:
http://arduino.esp8266.com/versions/1.6.5-1044-g170995a/package_esp8266com_index.json
http://arduino.esp8266.com/versions/1.6.5-1160-gef26c5f/package_esp8266com_index.json

you need to choose one - the multiple URLs in the boards manager are for different targets not same target

@kathir1951 I’m preparing full environment config here https://github.com/kireevco/packages/tree/master/xtensa-lx106-elf
not final yet. still testing full setup
the idea is full bootstrap
later I will add espressif stuff there, i’d like to make a clean open UDK alternative, so everyone can build it on any platform (mac,linux,win)

@luc-github: thanks! That explains a lot. Only thought, i could make a sort of collection, and then choose the required release.

Has anyone experienced an FTDI disappear from the list of available ports on a Mac? This happened to me a while ago and I had to reinstall the drivers and it worked again. But I’m not sure what caused it.
