Node MCU is an open-source firmware for which open-source prototyping board designs are available. The name “NodeMCU” combines “node” and “MCU” (micro-controller unit). The term “NodeMCU” strictly speaking refers to the firmware rather than the associated development kits.
Both the firmware and prototyping board designs are open source.
The firmware uses the Lua scripting language. The firmware is based on the eLua project and built on the Espressif Non-OS SDK for ESP8266. It uses many open source projects, such as lua-cjson and SPIFFS. Due to resource constraints, users need to select the modules relevant for their project and build a firmware tailored to their needs. Support for the 32-bit ESP32 has also been implemented.
NodeMCU-ESP8266 Plays a vital role in designing your own IoT product using a few Lua script lines. The module is mainly based on ESP8266 that is a low-cost Wi-Fi microchip incorporating both a full TCP/IP stack and microcontroller capability. Arduino Modules and Microcontrollers have always been a great choice to incorporate automation into the relevant project.
NodeMCU is a great WiFi chip, that can be used in several wireless applications. You can Control Devices Using Phone and NodeMCU like your appliances using Android Phone over WiFi.
