Arduino IDE 1.6.x or newer is needed (I tried it on version 1.6.8).

  1. Go to "File -> Preferences" and in the field "Additional Boards Manager URLs" introduce and click OK.
  2. Then go to "Tools -> Boards -> Boards Manager" and in the box "Type" select “Contributed”. Select the “esp8266 by ESP8266 Community” package and click the “Install” button.
  3. Now you can select the board for developing from "Tools -> Boards->ESP8266 Modules" and choose the board you want to program.
