Getting Started

The IDF Component Manager is included and enabled by default in all supported ESP-IDF versions.

Checking the IDF Component Manager Version

If you are unsure which version of the IDF Component Manager is included in your ESP-IDF installation, you can find out by running a CLI command.

First, activate the ESP-IDF environment, then run the help command:

Run ESP-IDF PowerShell Environment or ESP-IDF Command Prompt (cmd.exe) from the Start menu and run the following command:

> compote version

Older versions of the component manager may not include the compote version command. If the command is not available in your IDF Component Manager, please consider upgrading it to the latest version. See Upgrading the IDF Component Manager.
