Because of the ESP8266 complication of relinquishing control often enough so that it doesn't drop wifi, I would strongly recommend that anyone looking at this use the dual core ESP32 instead.

I am finding the ESP-32S ESP32 NodeMCU Development Board at $5.25 USD satisfactory. On a breadboard, there is one row available on either side of the module.

I'd love to see MMBasic on it, but can't really see anyone putting in the time to port it.

I just ported a picaxe web server to the ESP32 (in C, which I once programmed a lot in, but not in 30 years). Got the module on Tuesday, and got this far today (Friday). I subscribed to Rui Santos' ESP32 tutorial, and it got me to where I needed to be. The html template code is stored in a 24LC64 eeprom, with tokens (~##, e.g., ~01, ~20) where variable values are to be placed. This isn't yet connected to any sensors.

The project was for controlling a water delivery system with 2 saline wells, a saline holding tank, a reverse osmosis filter, a drinkable holding tank, and various sensors and pumps.

The time is retrieved using sntp whenever a connection is made to the (internet-connected) router.




The ESP32 seems to me a quite capable chip. Whether it has the capacity to have MMBasic installed, I don't know. Having wifi and bluetooth is a plus.
