Visual Studio Code extension for ESP8266 File System (SPIFFS)
Welcome to the Visual Studio extension for the ESP8266 File System Uploader. This extension provides the same functionality for VSCode as the Arduino ESP8266 filesystem uploader does for the Arduino IDE: it packages and uploads a BLOB to an ESP8266 allowing it to use a portion of it's Flash Memory as a Storage Device with SPIFFS (SPI Flash File System).
Whereas the Arduino IDE version adds a menu item to the IDE (Tools/ESP8266 Sketch Data Updoad), VSCode provides no such mechanism. Instead, this extension implements a single VSCode command (
While this extension really doesn't need the Arduino IDE installed - it only needs the ESP8266 package and tools - it's best to have it installed anyway. This extension is meant to be a companion extension for the Arduino for Visual Studio Code plugin, and it relies on the Arduino IDE to compile and upload code through their toolchain.
The ESP8266 core for Arduino needs to be installed on your computer. This needs to be done through the Arduino IDE's Board Manager (Tools/Board/Board Manager...) or via the Arduino for Visual Studio Code's "arduino.showBoardManager"command.
After installing this extension, you need to:
