This is my fork of nodemcu-lua-server. I added the DNS redirection / captive portal via esp8266-captive-portal and modified the send commands to send valid HTTP responses (though I think I could have just used the http module 🤷)
IoT NodeMCU webserver
IoT Webserver for NodeMCU (written in Lua)
If you don't have any experience with ESP8266 and Lua, please check: IoT Esp8266 Lua Guide
- Clone / Download this repository.
- Install nodemcu-tool using npm:
npm install nodemcu-tool -g
- Optional: You can install lua linter -
luarocks install luacheck
Before you start you have to update
config.lua file and set WiFi credentials:
module.SSID["NAME"] = "PASSWORD"
Connect your NodeMCU to USB port and upload all lua scripts (
/dev/cu.wchusbserial1410 - your device name might be different)
$ nodemcu-tool --port /dev/cu.wchusbserial1410 upload src/*.lua
If you're done you can try to connect to your NodeMCU:
$ nodemcu-tool --port /dev/cu.wchusbserial1410 terminal
In order to see NodeMCU / server logs press
RESET button on the board - the webserver will restart and try to establish wifi connection again:
