NodeMCU and Wi-Fi Remote Control Apps for Mobile Phones

Step-by-step guide on how to develop wi-fi remote control HTML5 applications for mobile phones and use them in IoT applications with NodeMCU and compatible devices (ESP8266 / ESP32)

Nowadays it has now become common practice to use mobile phones as a remote control in IoT applications and for this there are several development alternatives such as:

Android Studio
App Inventor
Scratch
Swift (Apple)
Kotlin
Etc.
What we are going to show here is an alternative solution for developing native mobile applications using HTML5 and known technologies such as: :

JQuery: Javascript library that facilitates the manipulation of elements and events in WEB pages. .

Onsen UI: Framework of responsive CSS components for developing mobile web applications with technologies such as HTML5, CSS, Javascript .

PhoneGap: Framework for generating hybrid mobile applications from web applications .

Hybrid mobile applications are applications that combine native components and web components.
From the user’s point of view, a hybrid application is identical to a native application. However, internally, a hybrid application uses a web view component that contains most of the content and logic of the application.”
