I bought one of those B&T RTL-00 modules, which is apparently almost pin compatible with ESP-12E modules.
Never got around to actually programming it yet...

It can be programmed with Arduino IDE:

Hackaday article from 2016 on the chip:

Compare RTL8710 with ESP8266:

The 1MB flash seems to be the only limitation.

There's a forum too:
