Can't compile for ESPDuino

When I try to compile any program for ESPDuino i get the following error. I completely uninstalled and reinstalled but can't determine what the issue is!

Any Ideas ???

"Error compiling for board ESPDuino (ESP-13 Module)." is just a generic message you could get for a million reasons. As you can see from comparing the actual cause now is different from before.

Why are you using esp8266 2.0.0? The current stable version is 2.3.0

This is odd then, because my only option is 2.0.0 how do I get 2.3.0?

What is the esp8266.com entry you have entered at File > Preferences > Additional Boards Manager URLs?

thanks that it!.. no more errors. thanks

Hi, can you please provide more information? I'm glad your problem is solved but I'd like to look into what caused the issue so I can help other users who encounter this and if the issue is caused by a bug in the Arduino IDE then I can get the developers to look into fixing it.

What was the esp8266.com entry you had entered at File > Preferences > Additional Boards Manager URLs when you had the problem?

Did you change the URL to http://arduino.esp8266.com/versions/2.3.0/package_esp8266com_index.json?

How about using http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json as the URL?

@pert

Followed your steps

Set Additional Boards Manager URLs to: http://arduino.esp8266.com/staging/package_esp8266com_index.json

http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json gave the same error

Loaded ESP8266 2.3.0-rc2

Compiled, loaded and executed Blink.

All is right with the world ... so far LOL

... Thanks :smiley:
