A wrapper for the excellent command line tool ESPTOOL.exe and PowerShell. ESPTOOL.exe is used for flashing, PowerShell for serial (post flash) programming. All needed files are included in the EXE file, just download it and place it where you want it. It will extract needed file structure and missing files automatically. The idea behind the app is to make the flashing and setup of ESP Easy FW as stream lined as possible. It's still a very early stage but should hopefully be functional for most use-cases.
- Flash ESP8266 (+ESP8285) using embedded ESPTOOL.exe [0.4.12]
- Use maximum baud rate if wanted
- Use forced DOUT if wanted
Post flash features:
- Set Unit name, number, admin password, Wifi settings, IP
- Activate and upload rules
- Monitor serial port using plink.exe
NOT implemented but on todo list
Agency FB is the font used within the app, if not present the app will kindly ask you to drag-and-drop the two font files found in the APP_DATA folder to the FONTS folder (automatically opened).
Admin rights are needed to be able to get COM port names (driver names).
BIN files need to be placed in the BIN folder (might change in the future but I plan to automatically download new releases from GitHub)
Log files for each flash will be placed in the Log folder.
Debug log is created by: save settings and open the ini file, change debug level 0 to 1, restart app and a bug log file will appear in the same place as the exe. Debug logs are sent here, but please add information (email, name etc.) in the text file prior to upload!
ERROR handling if the flash tool is telling you that an error has occured, a standard test is to simply reset the unit (if the unit has a switch for this, use that one, else disconnect the cable) and then try again. Flashing over serial is not an exact science.
I plan add more features on a weekly basis. Thanks for all the feedback!
