In IoT, LCD is rarely required, but some times its useful to monitor errors and connection related issues. In this tutorial we are interfacing I2C LCD with ESP8266 or ESP32. Both code examples are given.
We have very few IOs on ESP8266 and ESP32. I2C based display interface uses only two IO lines.
Let’s see whats the difference between ESP32 and ESP8266? Both ESP32 and ESP8266 are WiFi based SOC (Systems on Chop). Both have 32-bit processor, ESP32 is dual core 80Mhz to 240MHz CPU and ESP8266 is 160MHz single core processor. In depth comparison is given below.
In this example we learn how to send Secured POST request to a secured https web page using NodeMCU or ESP8266? As we know all web pages are HTTP protocols, GET and POST are methods of communicating between web browser and the server. Also you look towards server side php Example coding. If you are looking for HTTPS GET method read here.
