Command palette access to esptool for managing ESP microcontrollers.
The goal of this extension is giving easy access to some of esptool's functionality from within VS Code.
Most notably, it makes common tasks like erasing and flashing firmware a point and click operation rather than an exercise in remembering and typing command-line options.
You can also query the system on chip and flash ram characteristics.
The host running this extension must have Python 3 installed as well as the esptool module.
You can get Python from: https://www.python.org/downloads/
