Either way, there's no filesystem for ESP yet. Sure, you can wrap spi_flash_write/read and spi_flash_erase_sector functions from spi_flash.h into some user functions and operate on blocks of flash, albeit in 4kb sectors only. Once the fatfs is implemented, there will be no hassle adding the SD card support if there was a module that had one. Which reminds me of a kickstarter project using ESP that will have the SD card boards

I would like to ask, is someone already working on fatfs support?

However there is probably no ESP module with GPIOs 6-11 available on breakout connectors.
Wrong: Olimex MOD-WIFI-ESP8266-DEV (see the schematic for details)

You are right, even local supplier in Slovakia has it in his e-shop. I hope that fatfs will be supported in the near future.

If you had read my previous posts:
