ESP8266, Update Over-The-Air: NodeLua, a Spark.io like ESP8266 firmware
The ESP8266 chip is really something: cheap and with its Wifi interface capable for Internet-of-Things tasks. You can get boards on Aliexpress for as little as $3, shipping to Europe or US included! OK, so you ordered one, waited (possibly) a few weeks and ...

ESP8266: flashing the lua firmware and running some code
After you setup your ESP8266 module as described here  you can go on and write Arduino code that talks to the ESP8266 or even flash new firmware directly on the device. Someone has put together a firmware which allows you to send lua code to the module and ...

ESP8266: using Docker to setup the build tool chain the easy way
When you get started with wonderful world of the ESP8266 your first step might have been to play around with the AT command firmware. Then you might have chosen one of the pre-built multi purpose firmwares, such as the NodeMCU or the NodeLua image. Then, th...

ESP8266: trying out frankenstein firmware
I just gotten into the mood of trying out firmwares for the ESP8266. There is one that behaves similar to a busybox command line tool. Download the binary from here, flash it to the ESP8266 and connect to it over the serial channel:  https://github.com/nekr...

ESP8266: Using a seeeduino to talk to the ESP8266 module directly
I recently received two of these shiny new Wifi modules from China and had to test them out. In many posts around the web they say you should use a serial-to-usb adapter to send some AT commands to the module and set it up with your local access point. My p...
