Setting Up Blynk With Arduino IDE

Installing Arduino Board Package

 

  • Go to tools and then boards and then click on board manager and search ESP8266 in search bar and click on install.
  • Wait for installation to finish
  • Now after restarting the Arduino IDE , go to Tools->Boards and select Node MCU board , mine was version 1.0

This blynk app has set of library files which have to be included in the Arduino IDE environment before the project is executed

1. Follow the link to install libraries
