No experience with it, but flashing ESPEasy appears to be possible. It has a ESP8265 (1MB) and four solder pads for the serial interface. See PCB photos here:

The bad news is that the photos show that most GPIO pins don't have convenient solder pads. So plan on precise soldering to tiny naked ESP8265 pins.

And be very careful: It does not look like AC mains is electrically isolated from the low voltage DC circuitry. Until this is confirmed, treat all external connections with high voltage safety in mind.

Look for Shelly1 or Shelly2 ( Shelly2.5 ).
The same function, the same size, but TX, RX and others on connestors - no soldering.
And ESP with 4M memory on board.

The Sonoff Mini (and R3) also has an REST API, using the REST API you can also replace the firmware using OTA!
