Thanks for the suggestion. That leaves me with two questions:
How did you determine that the support for ESP8266 NonOS (and RTOS) SDK is that far behind?
The other framework options I see in the project wizard are Arduino and Simba. Are either of these more current? (I’d really prefer to try something other than Arduino as I have a project that uses that and has a couple issues. (*) )
Or would you recommend I use the nonos-sdk w/out PlatformIO? (It makes me lazy too! )
OK, three questions.
(*) The issues with the Arduino based program are that.
If I don’t use Serial output, the connection to a BME280 stops working.
If I connect to the USB/tty and read output, the program will run for over 10 days (before I got tired of waiting and pulled the plug.) If I power it from a wall wort, it stops operating in a day or two. I suspect that if console output is not read, it eventually uses all available RAM and locks the device up and w/out resetting.
I’ve put some hours into trying to track these down and feel my time would be better spent trying a hopefully more robust framework
