The Skeleton framework is a small collection of Lua modules that provide a simple modular approach to developing NodeMCU ESP8266 applications.
The Skeleton framework looks after setting up the Wi-Fi network in a location independent fashion and separates configuration from application code. The Skeleton framework also supports developing code first as Lua source files, then using node.compile() for production (saving valuable heap memory).
Use of the Skeleton framework is introduced in Workshop 1.
Applications are Lua modules that rely on the Skeleton framework to look after configuration and Wi-Fi set-up. Each individual application can focus on the specific functionality without having to duplicate basic infrastructure over and over again.
Some of the applications are introduced in Workshop 1.
ESP8266 NodeMCU Firmware
Download this version of the NodeMCU firmware development branch built on 2015-02-28 with WS2812B RGB LED support.
Install on your ESP8266 using esptool (or similar) as follows ...
esptool.py -p $SERIAL_PORT write_flash 0x00000 nodemcu_dev_0x00000.bin 0x10000 nodemcu_dev_0x10000.bin
