Programming NodeMCU – Hardware & Software Requirements
In this Chapter, we will cover the topic of How to Program NodeMCU using Arduino IDE.
Before we proceed further let’s look into the Hardward & Software Requirements to program NodeMCU using Arduino IDE.
2 USB –MicroUSB cable
3 Wi-Fi modem
1 Arduino IDE
2 Driver for CP2102 or whichever serial converter IC present on NodeMCU.
Once we start programming NodeMCU using Arduino, it will erase NodeMCU’s firmware. To upload the firmware again, you must first download .bin file from GitHub and using NodeMCU Firmware Programmer download it in NodeMCU. The following figure shows GUI of firmware Programmer.
