This is documentation of ESP-MDF, the framework to develop mesh applications for ESP32 chip by Espressif.

The ESP32 is 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo, 32 bit dual core chip running up to 240 MHz, designed for mobile, wearable electronics, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. It has several peripherals on board including I2S interfaces to easy integrate with dedicated mesh chips. These hardware features together with the ESP-MDF software provide a powerful platform to implement mesh applications including native wireless networking and powerful user interface.

The ESP-MDF provides a range of API components including Mesh Streams, Codecs and Services organized in Mesh Pipeline, all integrated with mesh hardware through Media HAL and with Peripherals onboard of ESP32.
