In this article, we will explore how to perform OTA updates on the ESP32 using a web browser and HTTPS protocol with a self-signed certificate. HTTPS provides a secure way to transfer data over the internet and is essential for any OTA update process that involves sensitive information. A self-signed certificate can be used to provide encryption and authentication without the need for a third-party certificate authority, making it a cost-effective solution for small-scale projects. By the end of this article, you will have a working OTA update process for your ESP32 project that uses HTTPS protocol and a self-signed certificate.
In this article series, we will explore how to perform an OTA update on the ESP32 microcontroller using a web browser with and without basic authentication. We will cover firmware update, filesystem update, and authentication, providing practical examples and code snippets along the way.
One of the most important features of the ESP32 is the ability to perform over-the-air (OTA) updates, which allows developers to remotely update the firmware of the device without the need for physical access.
In this article, we will explore how to perform an OTA update on an ESP32 using the Arduino IDE. We will cover the entire process, including updating the filesystem and firmware, as well as securing the OTA update with a password.
The ESP32 boasts a crucial capability that streamlines the sharing of firmware, which most manufacturers widely utilize. This capability involves creating a pre-compiled binary file containing the sketch portion (or filesystem). In this article, we will create a binary file for the filesystem and proceed to flash the ESP32 using the Espressif Download Tool.
An essential feature of ESP32 core that simplifies the sharing of firmware (and most manufacturers use it) is to generate a pre-compiled binary file with only the sketch part (or filesystem).
In this article we will generate a firmware binary from the command line.

In this article, we are going to integrate into our ESP32 or esp8266 an external flash memory in addition to the internal one.
In this article, we are going to explore the power modes of BON055 and focus on accelerometer features and management.
Even though Raspberry Pi Foundation has released the Pico W version, I still find this tutorial useful for adding WiFi to rp2040 boards using an ESP32.
We will use an esp32-wroom-32 (or esp32-s) as WiFi coprocessor and the full potential WiFiNINA library to handle it.
