@all: Hmmm...Imho this chat is not as frequently used as earlier times?
Everybody moved to arduino-esp32?
But is the ESP-32 already an alternative choice? Looks like there are still a lot of problems?

@rhertenstein_twitter you're in the wrong place - this is for ESP8266 boards. Might get more help on the Arduino forum @
@brutzler just got a few to play with. Seems to answer my low power problems (on paper)
@brutzler there should still be a place for the 8266 for a while yet though due to $

Esp8266 still has some potential.

About $4 difference between the esp and esp32=> major difference when you need to buy or sell a large number.

For me is more important, that its working without problems. I have enough work with my way of programming ;-)
There its of no good idea for me to change to another (perhaps more powerful ┬ÁController) where I have to expect that some stuff is not working because of new development.
My highest respect to all workers at this project, but I think its better for me to wait some time for stable stuff.

@brutzler I'm just going to start developing for the 32 chip as I need deep sleep features that you can't run on the 8266. I'll be solely in the Arduino environment so I'll report back to you on any issues I encounter in a month or so.

has anyone tried Nim for developing on the ESP?
