I have hade the enormous pleasure to be part of the Beta test of this development in the past period.

I have found the following strong points of this development:
- a single download of a standard Arduino environment with support for the ESP that works "out of the box"
- full support for the Arduino language, and standard Arduino libraries
- special ESP libraries for Wifi, Onewire. I2C, etc.
- great examples

So amazingly, it "just works". I have ditched my Arduino developments and do all my current development on the ESP. I used LUA before but ditched this too after the Arduino software cam available to me.

I have had excellent support from igrr during the beta test, with very fast response in case of bugs, this guy really knows his business !

Highly recommended! I think this will turnaround ESP development in a major way ! Don't take my word for it, TRY IT !!!

BTW: I have no connection to the developers, just an enthousiastic tester.
