Hello World.

Esp8266 basic is a special firmware for the esp8266. It contains a basic interpreter and browser based programing environment for the esp device. Once the firmware is loaded simply pull up the editor web page hosted on the esp and go to town writing and running code written in basic.

At we care about basic.

That feeling you get when the computer is able to do some thing with just 1 or 2 lines of code.

What is an ESP8266

Well an esp8266 is a microcontroller made by Espressif.
It is loaded with features. The most important being wifi. The best part is that they are dirt cheap and more powerful than an arduino. There is a variety of programming resources for these chips but one glaring gap. Basic. And thats where we come in. You are looking at the site for the first ESP8266 basic interpreter available and its not just any basic. Its a phansy basic (Yes, With a ph) that lets you make web enabled gui interfaces.

Why Basic? Why not?

Basic is a language beloved by millions of people. Its what many of us started out with and what the old timers used on there commodore 64s. Its how Microsoft got started and one of the reasons for the explosive growth of computers in the 80s. Basic is a simple but powerull language that lets you do amazing things with out needing a degree in computer science. ESP8266 Basic has been largely inspired by the work of Carl Gundle and his product run basic avilable at
