Getting Started With MicroPython on the ESP8266

Do you want a different way to program the ESP8266-based boards rather than the common method using Arduino IDE along with C/C++ programing language ?
In this tutorial we will learn who to configure and control an ESP8266 board using MicroPython.

BUILD TIME: 60 MINUTES
DIFFICULTY: RATING: Easy

MicorPython is one of the many programming language that can we use to program the ESP8266 module. It is a lean and fast version of the Python 3 programming language and has several advantages over traditional programming languages such as C and C++.

MicroPython is designed to be compatible with normal Python as much as possible. It has a complete Python compiler and runtime, and provides an interactive prompt known as REPL (Read-Eval-Print Loop).

MicorPython is designed to support few different types of microcontrollers. But for this tutorial I’m going to work with just one model: the ESP8266-based board (NodeMCU). Note that there are a few different boards that you can buy with the same chip.”
