Re: 16/12 tasks ?

An ESP32 with ESPEasy offers 32 tasks, and already has more GPIO's by itself. Plus the CPU is much faster (240 MHz over 80 MHz), and dual-core, it is IMHO a way more desirable unit for many tasks. It's just that most ESP32 boards are larger then the Wemos D1 Mini form-factor, more like a NodeMCU, t...
