wifi serial connection

Recommended Posts

Just thought you developers might enjoy this...
It uses a CRAZY cheap module, becomes a serial to wifi bridge, outputs on the module can then be connected to a standard serial tx/rx, 5v/gnd, and not only does it have a webgui, but also a web console




The esp-link firmware connects a micro-controller to the internet using an ESP8266 Wifi module. It implements a number of features:

transparent bridge between Wifi and serial, useful for debugging or inputting into a uC

flash-programming attached Arduino/AVR microcontrollers and LPC800-series and other ARM microcontrollers via Wifi

built-in stk500v1 programmer for AVR uC's: program using HTTP upload of hex file

outbound REST HTTP requests from the attached micro-controller to the internet

MQTT client pub/sub from the attached micro-controller to the internet

serve custom web pages containing data that is dynamically pulled from the attached uC and that contain buttons and fields that are transmitted to the attached uC (feature not fully ready yet)
