#70301 Thanks Marcel

again you are the best ;)
I didn't know all these tools! Your list is very useful.
Actually I was looking for a simple tool able to do OTA file upload. I don't really need a full IDE with all the fancy stuff, but if it's coming with, okay why not.
Out of your list I found the following are able to transfer file over WiFi (no need serial cable connected)
luatool
NodeMCU WebIDE
ESP Sky
Stehlik IDE
ESPresso
For sure I must try them. luatool seems to be exactly what I need to replace my ugly (but working) script.

Could be, yes. Didn't realize for a long time that it's got an OTA mode. I added a note about this to the page and updated the link for NodeMCU WebIDE (stalled, continued in a fork).

thanks for the link, very nice.

I actually write the scripts in visual studio core, I have many esp doing different things in different locations, so for me there is a need for them to be able to auto update in order to keep them up to date.
