When the AirMeter.io firmware is built for the ESP32 platform it uses the latest v4.4 ESP32 IDF SDK.
Windows Environment Setup
Espressif provide a Windows package which ensures all the required components are installed. This is the simplest way to setup a Windows build environment, the install can be found at https://dl.espressif.com/dl/esp-idf/?idf=4.4. Install the v4.4 sdk.
More in depth instructions and other installation methods can be found at https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-idf/en/latest/esp32/get-started/windows-setup.html.
The remaining instructions in this document assume that the "ESP-IDF CMD" link on the start menu is being used as the CLI to enter commands.
Linux Environment Setup
Follow the instructions at https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-idf/en/latest/esp32/get-started/ and ensure that the user environment is set up correctly.
