Disable test_beta_ESP8266_4M1M

#1 Post by BertB » 12 Jul 2020, 13:34

In the latest release, test_beta_ESP8266_4M1M is disabled as it is too big.
Some of my WeMos modules use the Nextion plugin, which is still in TEST.
This implies that I cannot update those modules, or is there another way?
I see ESP_Easy_mega_20200703_test_ESP8266_4M1M_VCC.bin is still around.
Can I use that instead?

The labels "testing" on the plugins are not really reflecting their status anymore.
There are lots of plugins with the 'testing' label which are as stable as they can get and I do believe the Nextion plugin is also without issues for a long time now.

Historically there were "normal" "testing" and "dev" builds, with each have an incremental number of plugins and controllers.
But I no longer believe this is the way we should continue as the builds are too large to use with all plugins.

If you have a good suggestion on what plugins and controllers will be useful to have in a build, I'm all ears.

I do not know the golden standard for the perfect ESP_Easy, sorry.
