Are there install instructions or videos for the NodeMCU and the raspberry PI installation?

Are there install instructions or videos for the NodeMCU and the raspberry PI installation? Seems like I see bits and pieces everyone but not a full install document.

Thanks

In the nodemcu workspace you need to use the links in the docs widget on the right to download the flasher utility and the firmware (use full…-float.bin, not basic). Then you’ll be able to connect and actually get responses back.

Well, that’s for nodemcu but how does the rasp pi factor into this? What are you trying to accomplish?

Still in debate as to whether to use my 8266 huzzah or a raspberry pi. So was wanting to understand difficulty of each and pro/cons.

For running serial port Json server? Pi. Nodemcu isn’t capable of that.

I must be missing something is the NodeMCU not cable of being the internet connection for a grbl machine? Sorry coming from Gecko and Mach3

Brief explanation: The browser can’t talk directly to a hardware serial port. That’s what serial port json server helps with, it’s a small app that will run on your computer, a Pi, but not on a Nodemcu and sends the commands from chilipeppr to your hardware (in your case the grbl board).

Now, you can attempt this, where the ESP8266 is tunneling the serial commands, but you still need SPJS running on your machine.

Thank You, made an assumption based on the main page and hadn’t read enough into the nodemcu side.
