Web-based universal remote under $4, probably

Don’t buy a universal remote, make one. It’s cheaper, funner, universal-er, kind of, and you get to learn the ESP8266, kind of. If you have a hungry toddler like I do, you might also be missing some of the buttons on your TV remote control. Those buttons are not worth the expense of a new remote, but certainly justify an afternoon project. You remember you have some ESP8266s that are sitting in your box, and the great simplicity and utility of such an endeavor. The ESPs sell for under $2 on Ebay after shipping, so throwing one permanently under you TV is not only for the rich and famous.”
