ESP8266: trying out frankenstein firmware

Do you like this post? A regular project like the PlaneSpotter Color takes many hours of my free time to develop and maintain. Would you offer me a beer for my hard work if I was your neighbour? Modern technology called teleportation makes it easy to send me a beer. Just click here. 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!
