🔴 How to setup ESP32 in Arduino IDE (new SIMPLE way by 2018)

Welcome to my new post for my video on YouTube. In this one, I will show you how to install ESP32 core into Arduino IDE in a new simple way (existing by 2018).

See the video about it on YouTube!

Hi. The ESP32 is superior chip in comparison to the ESP8266. Until now the installation process into the Arduino IDE was complicated. A few days ago a new option was presented. In this video I will show you how easy it is.

In one of my previous videos I have shown you how get started with ESP8266 in Arduino for beginners. The steps for installing ESP32 into Arduino IDE are almost the same. So, let’s start!

First enter “ESP32 Arduino” into browser or click the link in the description below. Information is located on Github pages. If you scroll down the Github page you will find new installation instructions. It will become clear very soon. All the links are in the description below. Here is info about using “,” (comma), if you use more URLs. If you use other microcontroller cores via URL, you will have to use a comma.
There are two links. Choose one of them. One for STABLE and another for DEVELOPMENT release. I always use the latter. All the links are in the description below.

Copy the link and start Arduino IDE. In File->Preferences we will paste the link in “Additional Boards Manager URLs”. I will first enter the mentioned coma as I also use ESP8266 core.

In “tools->board->boards manager” click “all” and scroll down to “esp32”. You can see available versions. The top one is the latest. Install it. The process can take some time, but I have clipped the video and here we are. Click close and voila! It’s installed!

Under “tools->board” you can scroll down to see there are plethora of ESP32 boards available. And if you check the “file->examples” you will see new examples for the board you have selected.

If we return to main github page and add “releases” behind the slash you can manually check for new versions.

Happy programming!

How to setup and use ESP32 in Arduino IDE. By 2018 there is a new simple way of installing ESP32 core into Arduino IDE. Much the same way as installing ESP8266 in Arduino IDE. This video is brief and if you want more details about compiling and installing libraries, please watch my other video about installing ESP8266 in Arduino: Organized in three parts: 1.Install Arduino environment + latest ESP core, 2.compile and program, 3.install a new library and see its examples. A beginners tutorial.
