For a long time I wanted to test Mongoose OS, this time we will make a brief introduction and installation in a Linux operating system “lubuntu” Ubuntu/Debian.
Mongoose OS is an open source operating system for Internet of Things (IoT) and low power microcontrollers such as ESP32 , ESP8266 , TI CC3200, STM32 license Available under dual GPLv2 / business licensing scheme.

Oficial Website: Mongoose OS
Boards ESP8266 12E & ESP32
In the few tests I have done such as http and https connections are created quickly and easily.
Another interesting feature of Mongoose OS are integrations Cloud Computing platforms available to create applications and connection to:
- Amazon Web Services o AWS : Source Wikipedia
- Google Cloud IoT : Source Wikipedia
- Microsoft Azure IoT : Source Wikipedia
- Losant IoT : Source Losant
Installing Mongoose OS
- In this opportunity I will start how to install it in Lubuntu an operative system based on Lubuntu.

Video Tutorial: Installation
I have done tests with ESP8266, loading firmware with some of the available RTOS SDK espressif, Eclipse IDE ESP8266 SDK y FreeRTOS SDK but Mongoose OS greatly reduces the download and code modification time resulting in very efficient.
Well I think this kind of IDE environments is a good initiative, later we will test and select the successes, advantages, disadvantages and I value the great effort of the Mongoose OS community and developers.
Other programming options, in the case of ESP8266 we will continue with Arduino ide maybe we try the Official SDK, in the case of ESP32 we will test the platforms:
- ESP-IDF (FreeRTOS)
Arduino IDE for ESP32
Recommended tutorial: ESP-IDF for ESP32 Modules Complete Installation
There is another method available to program ESP32, using ESP-IDF or Espressif IoT Development Framework
