I'm glad to announce to you that an initial Arduino environment for the ESP32 has been uploaded HERE.
Not everything is working yet, you can not get it through package manager, but you can give it a go and help us find bugs
The framework can also be downloaded as component in an IDF project and be used like that.
Things that "should" work:
- Serial (global Serial is attached to pins 1 and 3 by default, there are another 2 serials that you can attach to any pin)
- SPI (global SPI is attached to VSPI pins by default and HSPI can be attached to any pins)
- Wire (global Wire is attached to pins 21 and 22 by default and there is another I2C bus that you can attach to any pins)
- WiFi (about 99% the same as ESP8266)
You can try WiFiClient but you need to disconnect the client yourself to be sure that connection is closed.
