ESP8266: trying out frankenstein firmware

Do you like this post? Writing posts, developing libraries and programming online font creators is actually hard work. I order most of my electronics from a Chinese website called Banggood. It is save and the items usually arrive in good quality. With every order you do there by following this link you are supporting the blog. Thank you!

I just gotten into the mood of trying out firmwares for the ESP8266. There is one that behaves similar to a busybox command line tool. Download the binary from here, flash it to the ESP8266 and connect to it over the serial channel: https://github.com/nekromant/esp8266-frankenstein

So far I’ve used the serial console built into the Arduino IDE. But that’s not always a compelling choice. On a Unix/Posix system you also can use:

screen /dev/tty.usbserial 115200

Have fun!
