How will a user connect to a network?

So I have been focused recently on just writing the necessary code to get the base system up and running. Every now and then I run into a future feature that will at some point become critical. This post is about one of those ideas.

How does a user select a WIFI network? What is the interface going to look like?


From my solutions list I am probably going to host a mini webpage at first. This is probably my best bet since I won't have to pull any unknown features out of the ESP8266 module and it doesn't add any extra hardware.

If anyone has better or different ideas I would love to hear them.

Did you thought about a usb UART Interface and a little terminal programm with a tui or gui.

yes actually that is a very good idea. My friend and I were recently talking about that. I will add it to my list and do this instead of building amini web server.
