NodeMCU DevKit is a WiFi embedded microcontroller board, effective in building IoT(Internet of Things) prototypes.

Its has ESP8266-ESP12E WiFi based SoC(System on Chip) with NodeMCU firmware.

In this instructable we gonna see in detail about this board and adding this board to your Arduino IDE.

Step 1: What is NodeMCU?

NodeMCU is an open-source firmware and development kit that helps you to prototype your IOT product within a few Lua script lines.


Being "open hardware", why there is an "official" and a "clone" versions?

Good question! It's all about the quality i.e the components they use to build the board and some custom features added to the basic design i.e usb converters, board size, pin configuration etc, as it is a Open Hardware.
