cheers. I'll point the author in these directions. His lib maintains c compatibility so I'm not sure if that would work. thanks for the ideas though. the bottom line is FLASH_ATTR stuff is kept no matter if it is used or not
I updated the firmware, which rebooted it a couple of times, and things seem to be doing better.
On to my next question, which is mostly for @Palatis: I'm trying to use the esp8266-restclient code to POST JSON data to Ubidots via HTTPS. I can post the data using HTTP just fine, but the HTTPS variant fails, and I can't really get any useful debugging information out of the restclient code. I'm also using PlatformIO as my development environment. Any suggestions for how I can debug the SSL issues?
And following up on my previous problem, I'm back to having issues with the ESP8266 associating with the AP. :-(
