Compiling and Loading to Wemos D1 Mini
It is recommended to use Arduino IDE. You will need to configure Arduino IDE to work with the Wemos board and USB port and installed the required USB drivers etc.

USB CH340G drivers:
Enter into Additional Board Manager URLs field. You can add multiple URLs, separating them with commas. This will add support for the Wemos D1 Mini to Arduino IDE.
Open Boards Manager from Tools > Board menu and install esp8266 platform (and don’t forget to select your ESP8266 board from Tools > Board menu after installation).
Select Board: “WeMos D1 R2 & mini”
Packages — the following packages and libraries are used (download and install):

ArduinoJson.h —>
WiFiManager.h —>
ArduinoOTA.h —> Arduino OTA Library
“SSD1306Wire.h” —>
Initial Configuration:
You can update the Settings.h file with your OctoPrint API Key or do it from the web interface.

* Get our OctoPrint API Key from your OctoPrint -> User Settings -> Current API Key

NOTE: The settings in the Settings.h are the default settings for the first loading. After loading you will manage changes to the settings via the Web Interface. If you want to change settings again in the settings.h, you will need to erase the file system on the Wemos or use the “Reset Settings” option in the Web Interface.

Web Interface:
The Printer Monitor uses the WiFiManager so when it can’t find the last network it was connected to it will become a AP Hotspot — connect to it with your phone and you can then enter your WiFi connection information.
After connected to your WiFi network it will display the IP addressed assigned to it and that can be used to open a browser to the Web Interface. Everything can be configured there.”
