Quick Start Guide to Adding ESP32 to the Arduino IDE Board Manager

I really enjoy making sensor networks and the built-in wifi included in ESP32 boards is incredibly convenient. They are also "better" microprocessors and the fact that they use a 3.3V logic level can be helpful depending on the sensors being used as it means I don't need to also package a logic level converter. Not to mention, they have many useful varieties of development boards, including ones with an OLED prepopulated on the board (my go-to board when I know I'm going to want a display on my project), and LoRa-enabled radios (very helpful for long-range sensor networks).
