Using VS Code & PlatformIO to build complex projects on the ESP32

(Updated at 08/22/2022)

This article explains how to install the Visual Studio Code software with the PlatformIO plugin to be able to program more than 400 development boards within the same software, such as Arduino, ESP32, Nucleo, and STM32, Teensy, and Raspberry Pi. In our case, we can program the ESP32 boards with the Arduino language or with the native ESP-IDF framework.

Boards and libraries are installed automatically by the software.

Visual Studio Code is available on all platforms (Windows / macOS / Linux).
