FreeRTOS for ESP8266
May 4th, 2021 at 2:18pm
 
Is it somehow possible to develope with Visual Micro IDE extension for an ESP8266?

PlatformIO does support this already. I didn't found any hints if it ossible with Visual Micro also. Like this IDE more.

Yes it is. The hardware that Visual Micro support is the same system as the Arduino IDE. Both IDE's support a wide range of different hardware, ESP8266, ESP32, STM32 etc.

The first section of the official esp8266 docs explain how to Install for "Board Manager". That means for "Arduino" and for "Visual Micro" https://arduino-esp8266.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing.html#instructions

In short...

1)
You can follow any Arduino guide to install other hardware using the Board Manager in the Arduino IDE. Visual Micro will then see the same config.

OR

2)
You can use the Board Manager in Visual Micro (available via vMicro>Platform Explorer" menu) to do the same.

In short, in Visual Micro the IDE Locations button on the platform explorer provides a field for additional board support urls. Paste the Arduino compatible url provided by the author of the ESP8266 Arduino core. To save you reading the url is http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json. Then click the Rescan button on the Platform Explorer. The Board Manager tab will then allow you to install/uninstall the ESP8266 arduino core.
