NodeMCU/ESP8266 Arduino Core example, simple http server to output PWM

Last post show a dummy example of NodeMCU/ESP8266 Arduino Core to output PWM to control color/brightness of RGB LED.

It's another example to setup a simple HTTP-like server, to receive request from client, output PWM, to control color/brightness of RGB LED.


NodeMCU_WiFiWebServer_RGB.ino
/*
 *  This sketch run on NodeMCU (ESP8266),
 *  demonstrates how to set up a simple HTTP-like server.
 *  The server will set a GPIO pins depending on the request,
 *  to control the brightness of RGB LED connected to:
 *    D0 : BLUE
 *    D1 : GREEN
 *    D2 : RED
 *    
 *    http://server_ip/rgb/rrggbb/
 *    where rr is the value set RED
 *    where gg is the value set GREEN
 *    where bb is the value set BLUE
 *    then terminate with '/'
 *  server_ip is the IP address of the NodeMCU, will be 
 *  printed to Serial when the module is connected.

int ledB = D0;

  // Set GPIOs according to the request
  // No check valid of the requested setting
  analogWrite(ledR, valR);
  analogWrite(ledG, valG);

  // Prepare the response
  String s = "HTTP/1.1 200 OK\r\nContent-Type: text/html\r\n\r\n<!DOCTYPE HTML>\r\n<html>\r\nGPIOs of RGB is now ";
  s += String(valR) +":" + String(valG) + ":" + String(valB);
  s += "</html>\n";

  // Send the response to the client
  client.print(s);
  delay(1);
  Serial.println("Client disonnected");

  // The client will actually be disconnected 
  // when the function returns and 'client' object is detroyed
}


Connection same as in last post:



Compare with ESP32 version: ESP32/Arduino core for ESP32 example, simple Web control RGB LED

  1. nice video...i need some help that how can i turn on and off the GPIO of nodemcu as (client) and android as an server(HOTSPOT...)

    1. I don't understand your point, sorry.

      In this example, the ESP8266 do join the WiFi shared by a Android phone, the Android phone is act as hotspot.
