  • ESP8266 a microcontroller from Espressif
  • Integrated WiFi
  • 80MHz clock speed

Install

Windows/Mac CP2102 virtual com port driver

If you're running Windows or Mac you may have to install the virtual com port driver.

Connect to WiFi

http://docs.micropython.org/en/v1.8.7/esp8266/esp8266/tutorial/network_basics.html

import network
 
ap_if = network.WLAN(network.AP_IF)
ap_if.disconnect()
 
sta_if = network.WLAN(network.STA_IF)
sta_if.active(True)
 
sta_if.connect('SSID', 'password')
sta_if.ifconfig()

HTTP GET

import urequests
response = urequests.get("http://tim.gremalm.se/hello")
response.text
response.close()


WS2812

from machine import Pin
from neopixel import NeoPixel
 
np = NeoPixel(Pin(2), 3)
 
np[0] = (255, 0, 0)
np[1] = (0, 128, 0)
np[2] = (0, 0, 64)
np.write()

Color conversion with HSL2GRB

https://gist.github.com/dries007/26a2f36770c28500b912b0ecf1276129 Makes it easier to work with colors. Send in argument hue, and get out RGB

def hsv_to_rgb(h, s, v):
	if s == 0.0:
		return v, v, v
	i = int(h*6.0)
	f = (h*6.0) - i
	p = v*(1.0 - s)
	q = v*(1.0 - s*f)
	t = v*(1.0 - s*(1.0-f))
	i = i%6
	if i == 0:
		return v, t, p
	if i == 1:
		return q, v, p
	if i == 2:
		return p, v, t
	if i == 3:
		return p, q, v
	if i == 4:
		return t, p, v
	if i == 5:
		return v, p, q

GPIO

https://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/esp8266/esp8266/tutorial/pins.html

from machine import Pin
button = Pin(0)
button = Pin(0, Pin.IN, Pin.PULL_UP)
pin.value()

File system on flash

import os
os.listdir()
os.remove('filename')

Connect through WEBrepl (websocket)

https://learn.adafruit.com/micropython-basics-esp8266-webrepl/access-webrepl

import webrepl_setup

Use HTTP and not HTTPS when connecting to the websocket. HTTPS-version doesn't support connecting to HTTP websocket due to mixed content. http://micropython.org/webrepl/
