Just put together a simple board that takes the lowest cost esp8266 and provides an easy way to program them boards using a FTDI cable. Also comes with a 3.3V regulator.
The goal of this board is to control a strip of APA102C led over wifi. An external 2.1/5.5mm 5V power source will power the board and the strand of leds.
The GPIO0 and GPIO2 will controll the DO and CO lines of the led strand.
Untested as of yet, but have some boards on order now.
