If you are seeing this tutorial directly then you can start from beginning "Getting Started with ESP12E". Now we will setup the ESP12E (Node-MCU) Wifi Development Board on breadboard and program it with blinking LED. So lets start. Take your half size breadboard and set it up as shown in the following image:
Connect the micro usb cable to your laptop and follow the below steps.
- Open your Arduino IDE.
2. Then goto "File->examples->basics->blink" and click.
3. Then select your board as "NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module)" and the port on which your ESP12E (Node-MCU) Wifi Development Board is connected.
4. Hit Upload button and it will get programmed.
And done. It will blink the led on the board with a one second delay. It should not give any error if you have followed the steps properly. It will produce the following output:
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial. In the next tutorial, we will upload the data from our ESP12E (Node-MCU) Wifi Development Board on the cloud.
