Espressif 8266 development platform 2.6.0: Support for LittleFS file system, updated Arduino core

We are pleased to announce the next release v2.6.0 of Espressif 8266 development platform.

espressif8266-260

What’s New

  • Updated Arduino core to 2.7.2 (release notes)
  • Added support for LittleFS file system
  • Minor bugfixes and improvements

SPIFFS is being deprecated, but continues to be the default file system. Please consider moving your code to LittleFS. To choose LittleFS as the file system, it should be explicitly specified using board_build.filesystem option in platformio.ini, for example:

[env:nodemcuv2]
platform = espressif8266
framework = arduino
board = nodemcuv2
board_build.filesystem = littlefs

More detailed information about using file systems can be found here.
