  • I built a website running in ESP32 with separate frontend and backend. The frontend is made with VueJS + TailwindCSS, the backend is coded in C++
    1 project | /r/embedded | 13 Apr 2023
    Many examples in Arduino tell you to embed HTML to your C++ code (look https://github.com/tzapu/WiFiManager/blob/master/wm_strings_en.h), but my approach is different: The frontend is written in different language (TypeScript + Vue), with separate build process (no C compiler involved). It even is tested independently from Arduino code, on PC.
  • Esp-Idf wifi manager
    3 projects | /r/esp32 | 20 Mar 2023
    Hello. Some time ago I' ve strugled with seting up wifi manager in esp_idf framework. Most popular wifi manager made by tzapu was not working on esp-idf framework inside PlatformIo. So I have found tonyp7. It started to work after many changes in library code and makefiles. I have some free time and I can make WifiManager suited to bare esp-idf and esp-idf inside PlatformIo. My question is- do somebody need this ? Maybe there are alternatives which i did not find and my work is pointless. Please share your opinion
