Instructables View Counter

Subscriber counters for Youtube and Facebook are quite common, but why not make something similar for Instructables?That’s exactly what we’re going to do: in this instructable, we’ll make an Instructables view counter!
The views will have to be captured from the interwebs, so we’ll use the common (and cheap) ESP8266 WiFi module to get the required information. It needs some configuration, but I’ll go through all the steps required to get it up and running.
To keep the project as accessible as possible (i.e., not requiring a 3D printer, laser cutter or particle accelerator), I decided to use Lego for the case! So get out that bin of Lego and let’s get building!”
