Description

I had request about showing how to program ESP8266 ESP-E12 NodeMCU V2.0 using Arduino IDE. This is quick guide/tutorial to get started with Arduino and ESP8266 wifi module. I believe, this tutorials can be used for other NodeMCU versions too. (or bare ESP8266 boards, but with necessary hardware modifications and using FTDI modules) ** More detailed step by step instructions are given on my blog- http://theelectromania.blogspot.it/2016/02/how-to-program-esp8266-esp-12e-nodemcu.html We will be connecting external LED directly to D0 pin of NodeMCU (no need of external current limiting resistor). If you do not have external LED, it can be skipped because there already one onboard (blue) LED at this pin. I have connected external red LED just as fun Boards manager link: http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json or it can be found on following link- https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino Current NodeMCU i am using was from Banggood.com and it says DOIT ESP12E DEVKIT V2 www.doit.am http://eu.banggood.com/Wholesale-Warehouse-Geekcreit-Doit-NodeMcu-Lua-ESP8266-ESP-12E-WIFI-Development-Board-wp-Uk-985891.html Arduino logo and NodeMCU logo are their respective trademarks- logos shown in thumbnail taken from - https://github.com/nodemcu https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software Catch Electromania on- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Blog - http://theelectromania.blogspot.it/ Webpage- https://sites.google.com/site/electromaniablog/ Hackaday- https://hackaday.io/electromania Github- https://github.com/Electromania Twitter- https://twitter.com/TheElectromania Instructables- http://www.instructables.com/member/TheElectromania/ I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (https://www.youtube.com/editor)
