Embedding into Custom Scripts

esptool.py, espefuse.py, and espsecure.py can easily be integrated into Python applications or called from other Python scripts.

While it currently does have a poor Python API, something which #208 will address, it allows for passing CLI arguments to esptool.main(). This workaround makes integration very straightforward as you can pass exactly the same arguments as you would on the CLI:

command = ['--baud', '460800', 'read_flash', '0', '0x200000', 'flash_contents.bin']
print('Using command %s' % ' '.join(command))
