LET’S  GET STARTED

Firstly you will need Arduino IDE to be installed in your system. If you don’t have it download the latest version from here
Once IDE is installed open it
1. FILE > PREFERENCES

IDE_1
Arduino_Preference

  1. Enter the below link in the Additional Boards Manager and press OK.
    http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json
  2. Now open Boards Manager
        Tools > Board > Boards Manager .Search for ESP8266 and install it
    Boards_manager_IDE

    Once the installation is completed you are ready to program esp8266 with Arduino IDE.
    You can see a new list of boards added to boars section of your IDE.

Now test the IDE by uploading an example sketch from examples

Goto Example > ESP8266 > Blink . Select the corresponding board from the list

Here I have used ESP8266 NodeMCU and if you are using other boards/ wifi module. Then select your corresponding boards from the list.
NodeMCU has 2 inbuilt LED on it one connected pin 2 and other to pin 16

Blink IDE

Here is the pin mapping of NodeMCU
