Hi! I'm trying to run a micro-ROS application in an ESP8266 NodeMCU board. Is it supported? I am using foxy and I create de firmware with freertos and esp32 as target board. The problem is that when I try to flash, it crashes (connection timeout) . I have tried to write some simple code with Arduino IDE and upload it to the board to check if the board works well and yes! It seems that works properly. What may be happening? I supposed that creating the firmware for esp32 would work but now I am thinking that esp8266 is unsupported. Your help is really appreciated for me. Thanks

Hello ESP8266 is not supported. ESP32 is supported.

Are you have problems with ESP32 + micro-ROS please open an issue in the Github repo.

I could to flash the int32_publisher in an esp8266. I followed the steps of the tutorial with the Olex but in the step of flashing I used instead of and it seems that was flashed ok. However I don't see the topic. So I thing I am not doing well something related to the serial pot configuration of something like that
