[Answered] Is the sockets API supported?

Postby kolban » Sun Sep 18, 2016 11:48 pm

When working with TCP/IP on an ESP8266, I find that I can use the "espconn_*" functions ... but if using RTOS, I can use an implementation of the standard "sockets" API as an alternative. Does anyone know at this early date if the ESP32 provides support for sockets programming?

I haven't tried it, but the ESP IDF does build lwip/app/sockets.c which would suggest it is indeed available. Another item also pointing in that direction is the mbedtls component which typically uses the socket interface of lwIP.

Yes, with FreeRTOS as the standard in esp-idf, the sockets interface is fully supported. We will probably support the espconn_* interface as well eventually, but chances are this will be implemented as a layer on top of the BSD sockets.
