ESP8266/ESP32 firmware flasher for ESPHome

Project description

ESPHome-Flasher

ESPHome-Flasher is a utility app for the ESPHome framework and is designed to make flashing ESPs with ESPHome as simple as possible by:

  • Having pre-built binaries for most operating systems.
  • Hiding all non-essential options for flashing. All necessary options for flashing (bootloader, flash mode) are automatically extracted from the binary.

This project was originally intended to be a simple command-line tool, but then I decided that a GUI would be nice. As I don't like writing graphical front end code, the GUI largely is based on the NodeMCU PyFlasher project.

The flashing process is done using the esptool library by espressif.

Linux Notes

Installing wxpython for linux can be a bit challenging (especially when you don't want to install from source). You can use the following command to install a wxpython suitable with your OS:

# Go to https://extras.wxpython.org/wxPython4/extras/linux/gtk3/ and select the correct OS type
# here, we assume ubuntu 18.03 bionic
pip3 install -U \
    -f https://extras.wxpython.org/wxPython4/extras/linux/gtk3/ubuntu-18.04 \
    wxPython
