esp8266 OTA updates with Arduino IDE: filesystem, signed and password

OTA (Over the Air) update is the process of uploading firmware to an ESP module using a Wi-Fi connection rather than a serial port. Such functionality becomes extremely useful in case of limited or no physical access to the module.
In this article we are going to see the OTA updates with the Arduino IDE, firmware, filesystem, signed and unsigned.


How to manage dynamic WIFI configuration on esp8266 or esp32
