@skorokithakis from personal experience, i'd say - no. :-D but it is already quite work and usable. many libraries are still missing in the official repos (webserver, websocket, ticker, SPIFFS, ping,...) but some of them are available someplace else. for me it is less stable then esp8266 also (for example the STA sometimes refuses to connect to the AP, the SoftAP does not hand out IP addresses when configured with a different IP then the default, sometimes the main loop just stops executing and no WD kicks in,...). but it is constantly improving and the devs do a great job!

Hello all, a question, I'm using the (virtual) EEPROM of esp8266, with the:
EEPROM.begin (size)
command. Ok, and what is the maximum size I can use? I usually see examples using 512, but what would be the limit?

@everslick
OK thank you.

But using the other system sppifs (I have not yet used this method) would I have more bytes to use?

@everslick
Is it too complicated to use sppifs or is it equal to eeprom?

@rodrigocirilo completely unrelated. SPIFFS is a filesystem, where you have the usual FILE operation API (open, read,write,close,...)
have a look at the examples.

I'm having issues obtaining the fingerprint a la https://arduino-esp8266.readthedocs.io/en/latest/esp8266wifi/client-secure-examples.html . I'm in Chrome in OS X. I'm visiting https://api.github.com, then opening the inspector > Security > View Certificate (on overview) then expanding down to the last line & copying SHA-1 of *.github.com. When I connect, I get the "certificate doesn't match" error as per the code in the tutorial. Am I copying the wrong thing?
