Getting 200% faster Arduino IDE compiles with ESP8266 or ESP32 or… well… anything….

OK, this one might not be so much of a project but more of a “pro tip”.  We all know that Our PCs can be slow from time to time and I hate waiting, so when messing with a few ESP sketches tonight, I realized my compile time could be twice as fast and all I did was turn off Antivirus (well technically I added an exception).  I wrote a complete blog article about it in case anyone wants click by click instructions for Windows 10 / Windows Security Center exceptions.  For my clean Windows build I went from 12 second compiles to half that; 6 seconds.  I really hope this helps others.

I could paste the whole article here, but it really is mostly just me rambling to keep google search happy…

    1. Do you run AV on your Linux box? If you do, you may well likely experience improvements by excluding the compiler directories.
