ESP8266 Running JavaScript Using Espruino



In this video tutorial we show you how to load a specific firmware to the ESP8266 (ESP-12E) Development Board, which allows you to program it using the JavaScript programming language. You’ll need to have your ESP8266 recognized by your Operating System, which we cover in another video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6CqvhXpBKM). Please find below the relevant links as mentioned in the video.
