This is something that I’ve been thinking about doing for a while. I usually use a Huzzah when I do the ESP8266 thing, but I’ve used a “standard” NodeMCU 12-e as well. As a matter of fact, I’ve got a breadboard with one shoved into it to prototype on. The OTA-update to a microcontroller is something that I’ve always wanted to try.
Hello tech freaks, hobbyists, and professionals,
This post will help you to program ESP8266 over WiFi. We are posting this due to repeated requests from our blog viewers. An over-the-air update (OTA) is the wireless delivery of new software or data to a remote device. OTA update can be done in several ways, the simplest way is by using Arduino IDE. Let’s see how it works. Before getting into the update process let’s see what all things needed to do that.
- A WiFi network to which your PC and ESP8266 to be connected.
- Arduino IDE 1.6.7 or its newer versions- https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
- Arduino core for ESP8266 WiFi chip. ESP8266/Arduino platform package 2.0.0 or newer
- For instructions follow https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino#installing-with-boards-manager .
- This project brings support for ESP8266 chip to the Arduino environment.
- Python 2.7 (python 3.5 not supported) – https://www.python.org/
- Note: Windows users should select “Add python.exe to Path” while installing python 2.7…
