I'm consider a a project that will use a browser interface over WiFi. I have
no experience with WiFi and IoT devices and it would help if someone could look
at the concept and let me know if this is reasonable.
- I have chosen Espressifs ESP8266 as the client/server.
- The device will only be accessible via WiFi, so it will
need to connect directly to a smart phone/tablet in
order to enter WiFi credentials and for local control.
- From the browser I should only need to modify uploaded
text and download it onto the device.
Is this something that is done on a regular basis or
am I building something that is non-standard?
I'm using an ATmega1280 to control the project, so I
think it would be difficult to take advantage of the Arduino
stuff. Having said that, can anyone recommend resources
that might help with this project?
Any advice appreciated.
