Hello everyone,
I would like to add wifi to a complex program, but I Don't have anything in the menu-config to configure the wifi. I am looking for a quick guide to provide wifi to any programs. I am working on visual studio code using esp-idf.
Thank you,
best regards,

Arnaud

Adding WIFI with ESP32 board and ESP-IDF is easy, because the WIFI is part of the ESP32 module, and there isn't any variables in regards of pinout, different wiring and so on.

Just use the ESP-IDF WIFI settings for the exact module.

What ESP32 board exactly do you have?

Thank you for your reply,
I am using the esp32-EVB. I want to understand how to add the option to configure the wifi SSID and password in the menu-config like in wifi example.
Thank you !

You can set SSID and password using fuction: esp_wifi_set_config()

The ESP IDF documentation is good enough:
