A place users can post their projects. If you have a small project and would like your own dedicated place to post and have others chat about it then this is your spot.

#85471 Not so much a project, but I thought some people here may benefit from it and this seemed the most correct place to post it.

Ever wanted to update a ESP8266 over the air that isn't on your network and that you can't directly connect to? Well now you can. I made a library for remotely updating ESP8266 projects by adding pre-compiled binaries to GitHub releases on a code repository.

It can be found in the Arduino library manager by searching for "ESP OTA GitHub" or the repository is at https://github.com/yknivag/ESP_OTA_GitHub

There is also a working example which performs an update hosted at https://github.com/yknivag/ESP_OTA_GitHub_Showcase which shows how the repository needs to be set up for it to work.

Hope someone finds this helpful.
