Have you considered enhancing the Nextion Arduino library for use with an ESP8266 ?
An option to disable the serial2 hardware port and enable Software Serial would make the device very compatable.
Adopting Software Serial allows the existing hardware port to be used for development/debugging.
I am using the ESP12 which would otherwise be a great device to run the screen.
Given the popularity of the ESP in the maker community I think it would be a great step forwards.
I can fix hat for you I have a modified nextion library for this
that uses softserial for the nextion
Can you please post the link to the modified Nextion library mentioned above.
hey Andy send me a email on firstname.lastname@example.org and ill send it to you
ill also provide a example
Sounds great Martijn. I will also drop you an eMail if you dont mind.
I am now reviewing all of the Feature Requests, this will take some time, patience please.
Arduino is an ongoing issue. Request to enhance it - carried forward
Many projects now include ESP8266 use
I need to add to my arduino project and nextion the ESP8266, How can I do it?
Which ESP makes a difference (NodeMCU, AlienTek, plain module ....)
Perhaps get details from those that have used your ESP module in their project.
