Learning More About ESP8266 , LUA, and MQTT

I got to attribute my sudden interest in the ESP8266 cheap WiFi module yo Peter Scargill’s work on putting together a really good blog. He mentions that a fellow is merging MQTT code with an easy to use interpretive language called LUA. I would love to see a Forth language formed for the ESP8266…how cool would that be?

For the MQTT/LUA thing you can visit https://github.com/tuanpmt/nodemcu-firmware. I think the BIN file is ready to flash onto the ESP chip. I’m still waiting for my modules to arrive. Hopefully soon and then I can give a play-by-play about how to make stand alone devices….as I’m hoping to do with the kids in my camp this summer.
