I have been using ESP Basic for a loooooong time. I build a lot of projects with it and some have been continuous running for several years now.
Unfortunately ESP basic is no longer updated and maintained. An ESP32 version is not available.
That made me take the obvious step: I switched over to Arduino language. Loads of libraries and regular updates. Next to that available for both ESP8266 and ESP32.
And yes: it has been generally quiet here overall on the forum. I wonder why. In these days of Corona and lock downs I would have expected tons of projects emerging. But no.....
Raspberry Pi is no option as a replacement. Even the Pi-Zero is more expensive as it needs at least an SD card to get it working. And there are less libraries available for the sensors. The Raspberry is more a programming platform as the ESP series are more an IOT platform.
