esp8266 WiFi module - stand alone? Answered
So I've been looking at this esp8266 wifi module, which seems to be a popular toy for Arduino users. I myself am one of those Arduino users and so I bought a couple of these to play around with. So far they work great with the Arduino, but I read somewhere, I think it was make.com, that these modules can actually be programmed to be used without the Arduino or other external microcontrollers. I simply wondered if this was in fact true, since I can't seem to find any evidence of it being done. If it is true, does anyone know of any good tutorials or instructions on how to do it? I just want to be able to turn on and off a single LED via wifi without using an Arduino or other external microcontroller. Any tips, links, suggestions would be very welcome.
