So far I have tested over a dozen of custom firmwares for ESP8266 module. I believe this project is what I have been looking for for my own product and I’m very excited to give it a try on my ESP8266 module. Unfortunately, I have had a bunch of errors as I have been trying to compile the project using PlatformIO IDE. I do not have the Arduino IDE and I don’t know much about Arduino platform as I have never used it before.
I have downloaded all the dependencies and libraries, and Arduino extension has been installed, as well.
These are the problems I got off the terminal:
fatal error: PubSubClient.h: No such file or directory
error: no matching function for call to ‘PubSubClient::publish(char , String&)’
error: ‘MQTT’ does not name a type
error: expected unqualified-id before ‘&’ token
error: expected ‘)’ before ‘&’ token
error: expected initializer before ‘pub’
And by the way, why Blynk is not available in a pre-built binary format for those who want to test drive the firmware quickly without bothering much about compiling and its related stuff?
