Latest OpenMQTTGateway how to?

i want to make my own cheap (Infrared IR, 433mhz and MQTT on ESP8266 bidirectional gateway using OpenMQTTGateway )

i want all those in one unit , so i got this link

but this link is old and the latest releases on github of openmqttgateway does not provide this all in one bin file for esp8266,

how to upload the latest software of this project to my esp8266 board ?


the best way is to configure and upload the program with platformio.

I can also upload a bin file following your needs but the first method should be tried first.

I m unable to use the platformio method , i m very new to it ,

Is there any tutorial on how to install and use platform ?

Here is it:

sorry for late reply .

i tried as it is in this video , but i do get many errors , i am unable to flash the code to my esp32 with the given circuit ,

please give a tutorial ,


Do you want to flash an esp32 or an esp8266 ?

i want to flash to esp8266 nodemcu .

i have build the circuit according to this schematic

As a first try and if you can change your pinout to the default one you could try to flash a pre built binary :

which binary should i download for esp8266 with both RF and IR ?

when i try to build the code in platformio then it gives this error

You can try first with rf or ir. I will give you next week with both if you succeed like that with one of them.

Just do what it is saying.
