I ordered one WeMos D1 Mini board. It arrived in just a couple of days, and is the V2 (newer) board, unlike the older boards many other sellers offer. I chose this seller mostly because they offered Prime shipping rather then 12-39 days from China. The price was a little higher ($8 instead of $4+$2s/h), but not bad if you're just getting a board or two. If I were buying many and was willing to wait, I might go with another seller, but this place was hands-down the best option for a combination of inexpensive and fast for a small shipment.
The board itself is nice quality and came with male, female, and stacking female headers (you have the option of soldering on any of them, or leaving them off to keep the board small). I had to install a driver (ch340g) for the serial port, but that was easy and was available from a link on the WeMos.cc web site. I'm using Windows 10.
I was able to get Arduino C and NodeMCU lua running on the board (separately-- can't have...
All the functionality of the HiLetgo New Version NodeMCU LUA WiFi Internet ESP8266 Development board in a more compact 2-sided form factor. The pins elided from the standard full E-12 are the duplicate 3v3/GND and reserved pins (RSV and IO pins dedicated to the onboard 4mb SD flash memory.) You won't miss them, and it makes the board easier to use.
The only thing I did miss from the full Esp-12 development board is the second red built-in LED connected to D0, but at a 25-30% smaller footprint, it's an easy tradeoff.
The kit includes a few different pin/headers options for you to choose from for mounting/stacking (soldering required). Photos of assembled units on the manufacturer's web site (wemos.cc) show the silver ESP8266 chip on top (so the built-in blue LED is visible.)
Works great with the community ESP8266 Core support...
This is a very cool little device. I was able to follow instructions online to get it up and running without too much trouble. It connected very easily to my WiFi. Learning how to program using Lua wasn't too difficult (if you've programmed before). There are quite a few examples online to follow. I currently have one of these guys connected to an ultrasonic sensor monitoring the height of the creek behind my house. The NodMcu is about 110 feet away from my WiFi and doesn't seem to have any issues connecting (I do have an outside WiFi antenna). I also have one attached to a magnetic switch monitoring my garage door. Works great.
