• It depends on how you want to set it up.

    You mentioned that you want to "send data" from the esp, so that means the esp would be a client that would periodically send data to your server. Alternatively you can "ask for data" from the esp, in which case the esp would be a server waiting for a request from a client.

    Do you have a drawing or an image of how you're thinking of setting things up?

  • Aww okay, yes so i would want it to periodically send data to my server... I feel so lost... Okay, so I am running an express server on my computer localhost:3000... I cant figure out how to fetch the data off the esp8266 or like you said, have the esp8266 send the data to my server... I know it is probably so simple to do but I cant put 2 and 2 together for some reason.. I was using a third party library Axios to try to make a call to the esp but can't get that to work. .. Am I on the right path at least? Thanks
