Upcoming events

Welcome to ACKspace; a hackerspace located in Heerlen, The Netherlands.

A hackerspace is a place where people get together, socialize, share knowledge, tinker and build stuff.

In order to make this possible we have a collection of tools, (useful) stuff, work area and a lounge where we can relax and discuss our favorite games.

Description Playing around with cheap wifi modules


To make the ESP8266 more accessible to everyone I have created a "programmer" which allows for easy firmware uploading and communication with the module.

Behold, the ESP^2 (esp egg salad programmer).

Revision 1.1

xopr Modified the ESP^2 a bit:

Using Arduino 1.6.4 to program the ESP8266

Taken from

Webserver serving JSON

This sketch provides a webserver-like interface and provides a json file (somewhat compatible with SpaceAPI) There is a version running in the space in a 'hot' zone, and accessible on

You can find the code here


This sketch is a web client and will update the SpaceState

loading scripts from a webserver

I (Da Syntax) got tired from typing the scripts line for line into the lua console of the nodeMCU firmware. I wrote a little function to load the scripts from a webserver running on my laptop. This way I can just save the script on my laptop and load it to my ESP8266 calling 2 functions ( netload() and dofile("netloaded.lua") )

function netload()
	conn=net.createConnection(net.TCP, 0)
	conn:on("receive", function(conn, payload)
		print(payload)"netloaded.lua", "w")
	conn:send("GET /test.lua HTTP/1.1\r\nHost:\r\n"        .."Connection: keep-alive\r\nAccept: */*\r\n\r\n")

Future plans
