ESP8266 + DS18B20 LUA code completed

This LUA code on the ESP works like a bomb – really simple and really stable. The temperature sensors are connected directly to the ESP’s GPIO0 pin. This eliminates the need for an Arduino as all the work is done by the ESP. https://github.com/StormTrooper/ESP8266-Temperature-Sensor

ESP8266 LUA

After having struggled for many days with the instability of the ESP (I almost got some code going which read the DS18B20 sensors and upload the reads via the wifi, but the ESP kept resetting or returning unpredictable results) I did some more reading up and found these clever guys are now using the microcontroller …
