How can I register a physical button press on a webplatform using the Feather HUZZAH with ESP8266? Answered

I am trying to make a cube where 4 of its sides have a physical button which can be pressed. I want to be able to receive what button was pressed and when via long distance. So wherever the cube is, I can read what it sends on a webplatform of any kind.

I looked into Adafruit IO, the feather boards and IFTTT automation but can't figure out how to do this still...

I have a basic arduino kit already but nothing Adafruit related yet, before I buy more parts I need to make sure I know what I need and how I will make it work.

So far my best research has gotten met to the Feather HUZZAH with ESP8266, but I am not skilled in coding are working with circuit boards. All I know is that it has the option for a battery so my cube can function on it's own (which is very important)

So the main question is: How can I make a small portable cube with buttons on its side to send the data of those button presses to an online platform wherever it may be used?
