Arduino 1.6.7 with ESP8266 support

Using Arduino 1.6.7 with ESP8266 support is easy as is with any Arduino supported boards.


1 The Arduino 1.6.7 can be downloaded here. After the zip file has been extracted, go to File -> Preferences and paste in the
Additional Boards Manager URLs input. Click OK and go to Tools -> Board -> Board Manager... and search for ESP8266. The should be a esp8266 by ESP8266 Community package. I have installed the version 2.1.0 of that package.

The supported boards for this version are: Generic ESP8266 Module, Olimex MOD-WIFI-ESP8266(-DEV), NodeMCU 0.9 (ESP-12 Module), NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module), Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266 (ESP-12), ESPresso Lite 1.0, ESPresso Lite 2.0, SparkFun Thing, SweetPea ESP-210, WeMos D1, WeMos D1 mini, ESPino (ESP-12 Module), ESPino (WROOM-02 Module), WifInfo and ESPDuino.

2 Now you can select the board from Tools -> Board -> Sparkfun ESP8266 Thing. The other settings can be seen in the screenshot below:

3 Now you can write your ESP8266 code and upload it. Upload complete on ESP8266 board messages:

1. In order for this to function, you will have to flash ESP8266 with Arduino support firmware.
2. The software already contains several ESP8266 libraries, like: ESP8266WebServerESP8266 Multicast DNS and ESP8266WiFi.
