Multiple NodeMCU and Domoticz Projects for ESP8266

nodemcu_programmer

I’m pretty sure that most people reading this very article know about the (very) cheap ESP8266 Wifi module.
A bit more than a year ago, I actually made a small development board for it, which was recently used in the connected lamp that wakes me up. While what follows pales in comparison to what cnlohr has implemented on this chip over the last months, sometimes you just have small projects that you don’t want to spent days on.
Anyway, the ‘standard’ way of compiling programs for this neat little chip involves installing a cross-compiling toolchain on a Linux computer (or VM), and then using a dedicated tool to flash your program to the ESP8266.
As you can guess, this can quickly get tiring if all you want to do is blink an LED… but then I stumbled upon NodeMCU and Domoticz.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
