My new server in the family :)
80Mhz and 1MB of disk. Awesome!

It serves a page about itself at http://194.126.207.20:8266/

@w84death that is amazing, add a micro sd-card module and it would likely be able to comepte against this solar powered website https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/

@carbontwelve Yes! That is my ultimate goal - super small self-sustainable server.

@w84death inspired by the lowtech magazine website I began looking into what it would take to host a similar website outside in a weather sealed container with a 5 or 10W south facing panel.

Its getting that balance of power draw vs performance right that's the difficult bit.

@w84death That's perfect !

Juste one point : My firefox is angry with the source because you forgot <!DOCTYPE html>

@w84death
Nitpicking, but ESP8266WebServer doesn't seem all that lightweight. Stuff like iterating through all headers to see if the searched one exists and if it exists, iterate again to get its value (::authenticate) or building new Strings from existing Strings (::_prepareHeader) aren't good signs.

The impact is probably negligible though (either because it's not were the CPU spends time or because the compiler is able to optimise most of it).

Nice project!

@w84death and as I can see, you can do lisp on that powerful machine 👍👍👍 that's interesting for me as well 🤔

@w84death I'm making a carboard case for an old laptop motherboard :3

@Kimba when I was young and doing all that PC building/overclocking, etc. I have a PC in a cardboard box as it was easier to replace PC parts and free :D I'm now curious how your will end up looking :)
