esp32 alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "Go Compilers" category.
Alternatively, view esp32-transpiler alternatives based on common mentions on social networks and blogs.
Do you think we are missing an alternative of esp32 or a related project?
The Arduino IDE is easy to use. But I faced problems like maintainability and testability at more complicated IoT projects. I needed to compile and flash the ESP32 before testing my code functionality by doing it 100% manually.
This solution transpiles Golang into Arduino code, which can be compiled to an image by using the ESP32 toolchain. Now I am able to use a fully automated testing approach instead of doing it 100% manually.
The Transpiler only supports a small subset of the Golang Language Specification. Look at the mapping and the tests to get the current functionality. It is also not possible to trigger the C/C++ Garbage Collection, because Golang handles it automatically "under the hood". Go strings will be transpiled to C constant char arrays, which could be handled on the stack.
