The ESP8266 may not be the newest on the block but has excellent support and a super-easy installation guide if you want to write scripts using Arduino IDE. Now ESP32 got the same treatment and what once had been a complicated setup process is a 3 step solution. Programming ESP32 on Arduino IDE just got easier.
