ESPurna Firmware

ESPurna ("spark" in Catalan) is a custom firmware for ESP8266 based smart switches. It was originally developed with the IteadStudio Sonoff in mind but now it supports a growing number of ESP8266-based boards. It uses the Arduino Core for ESP8266 framework and a number of 3rd party libraries.

Current Release Version is 1.12.1

Read the changes log.

Notices


2018-01-11: As of current version (1.12.0) ESPurna is tested using Arduino Core 2.3.0 and it's meant to be built against that version.


2017-08-26: since version 1.9.0 the default MQTT topics for commands have changed. They all now end with "/set". This means you will have to change your controller software (Node-RED or alike) to send messages to -for instance- "/home/living/light/relay/0/set". The device will publish its state in "/home/living/light/relay/0" like before.


2017-07-24: Default flash layout changed in 1.8.3, as an unpredicted consequence devices will not be able to persist/retrieve configuration if flashed with 1.8.3 via OTA from PlatformIO. Please check issue #187.


Contribute

There are several ways to contribute to ESpurna development. You can contribute to the repository by doing:

  • Pull requests (fixes, enhancements, new features... are very welcome)
  • Documentation (I reckon I'm bad at it)
  • Testing (filing issues or help resolving them, they take a lot of time and sometimes I don't have the required hardware to test them all)

And of course you can always buy me a beer, coffee, tea,... via the donation button below.
