Hey there, I’m looking into buying a ESP32 board off of amazon and write code on it using VSCcode. I was checking the list of boards on platfomrio and i couldn’t figure out what type of board to choose? I’m looking to buy a simple ESP32-devkitC but not necessarily the Espressif brand. So my question is: do i still use the “Espressif ESP32 dev Module” in VSCode even if it is not directly from the Espressif company?
Pretty much. If the board isn’t directly supported by name (which mostly just ensures correct pin mapping flash memory size and mode), it will most likely still work as a ‘ESP32 dev module’ board - either as is, or with some minor tweaking (again, around flash memory size and mode, etc).
Alright ! Thank you very much !!
