From the Wemos D1 mini to the NodeMCU, the ESP8266 based boards are by far the most popular platform, among makers and hobbyist, for building WiFi based projects due to their low cost and general ease of use. For today’s tutorial, we will continue our exploration of the most popular of the ESP8266 based boards; the NodeMCU development board and we will explore how to build a web server using it. Through the web server, we will be able to control anything connected to the GPIO pins of the board. We will not limit ourselves to just controlling LEDs, but by expanding this project you can build a full-blown home automation system or any other project that involves controlling or obtaining data from the NodeMCU’s GPIO remotely.
