Day 2, Skip Lua, lets try Arduino IDE and some sensors on nodemcu

posted in: Hacking | 0

After reading about lua programming language and its downturn in mcu (bugs and lack of space and code libraries) and after a clear sign from Benrnhard, i decided to switch to the Arduino IDE and its C libraries.

So let me try to setup a temperature/humidity sensor today….

 

so far so good,

  1. installed the arduino ide here https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
  2. Went to File -> Preferences -> Additional Boards Manager URLS, added the link http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json now search for it and waaaaaaiiiit (5-10 min) for it to download and install, now u can choose it from the Board menu.
  3. installed the DHT11 sensor and used the File-> examples -> DHT sensor library -> DHTtester

 

adjusted some lines with the sensor type and now its working.

Next step-> using an android APP to read the data
