The ESP8266 is a cost-effective, and very capable WiFi-enabled microcontroller! After ESP01 (few GPIO pins) there are many ESP based module in the market but most popular one would be ESP-12E/12F. And most the Development boards doesn’t allow you to remove ESP module from the board!
To take advantage of all of those benefits, we’ve created ESP-8266 (12E & 12F) Frog Board; We call it Frogo Pins!! – an ESP8266 development board, with an integrated FTDI USB-to-Serial chip and its removable!! We are not kidding!! It is removable.
Thanks to its auto reset functionality you don’t have to keep holding Flash/Boot button while uploading the sketch on Arduino IDE. Choose NodeMCU/Wemos D1 Mini board to enjoy auto reset function in Arduino IDE.
Setting Up Arduino IDE
Check out the ESP8266 Arduino GitHub repository for more information. Installing the Addon With the Arduino Boards Manager To begin, you’ll need to point the Arduino IDE board manager to a custom URL. Open up Arduino, then go to the Preferences (File > Preferences). Then, towards the bottom of the window, paste this URL into the “Additional Board Manager URLs” text box: COPY CODE
You can add multiple URLs by clicking the window icon, and pasting in one URL per line.
Hit OK. Then navigate to the Board Manager by going to Tools > Boards > Boards Manager. Look for esp8266. Click on that entry, then select Install.
The board definitions and tools for the ESP8266 include a whole new set of gcc, g++, and other reasonably large, compiled binaries, so it may take a few minutes to download and install (the archived file is ~110MB). Once the installation has completed, an Arduino-blue “INSTALLED” will appear next to the entry. Selecting the ESP8266 Thing Board With the Board add-on installed, all that’s left to do is select “NodeMCU” from the Tools > Boards menu.
