As I ordered my ESPs in bulk and plan to use them in a variety of projects in the near future I decided not to assemble a flash station (link here) on a breadboard but rather solder a small circuit board. This will not only help me mass-produce my ESP configurations, it is much rather a hardware equivalent of the small bash scripts I write to remember useful flags and oneliners.

There are many very helpful and excellent documentations and tutorials for the ESP8266-01 on the internet and I will not even try to replicate them here. I try to collect the most valueable in the links down below, but I already know this list is far from
