I needed html/php-text in my arduino – esp8266 project. It was very annoying to escape nearly everything with \.

After searching quiet a while I found a fast solution.

const char text[] PROGMEM = R“=====(
you can write everything in here! Like that:


or <html></html>

IT DOESN’T MATTER! „‚!=“)§(§/$&%&“/§$(„)=§


Isn’t it nice?

Write in the comments what you think and if there is a better way.



If you want to use it with an ESP and you want to set a String use:

const char * text PROGMEM = R“=====(

This is working fine as String.

I personally use it in a separate ino tab and include it as
extern String text;
to use it
