Esp8266 and Idf

Postby Deouss » Mon Feb 11, 2019 1:42 am

Maybe this is a trivial question but can current idf for esp32 can be used for esp8266 ?
I am just looking into previous hardware models and wonder if anything needs to be ported or simply switching some compilation options is ok.

hi, current esp-idf doesn't support esp8266, integrating esp8266 into esp-idf is under our plan.
ESP8266_RTOS_SDK is idf style esp8266 sdk, some fundamental features are same with idf. Here is the link: https://github.com/espressif/ESP8266_RTOS_SDK

Can I use CMake for that SDK ?

OK. So I was able to flash Esp8266 (NodeMCU) with almost same settings for Esp32 toolchain except I switched IDF_PATH to ESP8266_RTOS_SDK directory. All compiled fine just like CMake for esp32

I guess I used setup for esp32 that was somehow forced with setup.
I am getting different errors now from CMake - seems like something is not set right in CMake files or code.
After tweaking toolchain-esp8266.cmake file I get to the point where generating build output dirs fails.

Most of subdirs fail - 'existing directory' error

These lines fail:

~~~

I would appreciate help
