Does Oak have AP mode/server support?
« on: October 20, 2017, 09:49:11 am »
Hi there, My name is Jeen
I'm throwing together a wifi-enabled led strip, to be controlled point-to-point, not over WAN. (Y'know, to put on a fez. Like you do.) Digging for parts I ran across
the Oaks I got that went into the "cool Kickstarter stuff I never got around to using" pile. I know the ESP8266 can run in AP mode, which would let me connect my phone to it and tell it to change color, run an animation, whatever. I don't see anything in the Oak docs about AP mode but I think I read that that I can use the ESP8266 Arduino library directly, though it can break the cloud stuff. I'm wondering if I add a switch/button to a random GPIO and check for that, can I get my wifi server but keep uploading over wifi too? Is there something I should do to turn off "cloud mode" if i'm running in "server mode"?

Thank you
