Configuration

Please use roboheart_hercules ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

[env:roboheart_hercules]
platform = espressif32
board = roboheart_hercules

You can override default RoboHeart Hercules settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest roboheart_hercules.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

[env:roboheart_hercules]
platform = espressif32
board = roboheart_hercules

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = esp32

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 240000000L

Uploading

RoboHeart Hercules supports the following uploading protocols:

  • espota

  • esptool

Default protocol is esptool

You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:

[env:roboheart_hercules]
platform = espressif32
board = roboheart_hercules

upload_protocol = esptool

Debugging

Debugging currently does not support RoboHeart Hercules board.
