Hey guys and gals, check out the following two videos. This is a simple (4 lines of code or less) browser based tool for esp32 boards and more. Try adding it to a Blink sketch, or even better any servo or stepper or motor sketch.

I call this author a Wizard. I still can't figure out how he does it, there isn't enough code. I will learn a LOT from this guy, I hope you will too.

Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.

The first link works, it's just YT wanting to make you watch a short AD.

Also be sure to check out his IDE customizations. I already was using most of these but did discover a couple new additions. See YT video at

Thanks Ron!  Just getting started playing with ESP32 series after a lot of Arduino and RPi stuff.

@lee-g You will find a lot of similarity with Arduino. The primary difference is probably the raw performance but that is seldom a consideration these days with the slowest still being plenty fast. These under $10 boards beat the snot out of the last $5 million mainframe I used both in CPU speed  and memory.
