I herewith announce a new GUI tool to flash NodeMCU based on esptool.py targeting windows users primarily. Self-contained executables are available on GitHub .


Flash NodeMCU with NodeMCU PyFlasher
Motivation

This is about an issue the NodeMCU community touched on several times in the past, most recently in fall 2016 .

I stated that based on my experience doing NodeMCU user support it should be a lot simpler to flash NodeMCU for Windows users.

A number of flashing tools are available but only two are actively maintained: esptool-ck and esptool.py. Only one is endorsed by Espressif: esptool.py (they hired the developer(s)). 70% of the users of my nodemcu-build.com service are on Windows. BUT Windows doesn’t come with python installed which is required for esptool.py. BUT Windows users in general are more reluctant to use the CLI than linux/Mac users which is required for esptool.py.

Conclusion: this is not a comfortable situation for NodeMCU’s largest user group.

The plan

For quite a while I planned to write a self-contained GUI tool which would use esptool.py in the background. It should primarily target Windows users but since I’m on Mac it should be cross-platform. Even though I had never used Python before I felt confident to pull this off.

Implementation Uses the cross-platform wxPython GUI framework. I also tried PyForms/PyQt4 but settled for wxPython. Requires absolutely minimal user input. The esptool.py “console” output is redirected to a text control on the GUI. Uses PyInstaller to create self-contained executable for Windows and Mac. The packaged app can run standalone i.e. without installing itself, a Python interpreter or any modules.
