Installation of the IDE¶
Your EBB evaluation board has an ESP32 from Espressif. There are various toolchains for programming an ESP32.
We recommend the Arduino IDE. The source code in this documentation is tested for the Arduino IDE.
Download the latest version of Arduino IDE from the download section of the Arduino webpage. If you already have installed a version of the Arduino IDE, it should be at least the version 1.8. We recommend to use a stable version and not the HOURLY BUILDS or BETA BUILDS. After a successful download, execute the downloaded installer and start the Arduino IDE. It will present an pre-generated sketch:

In order to program the ESP32 it's necessary to install the appropriate addon. This is described in chapter Programming the board
