Not so long time ago we reported that XOD is compatible with ESP8266 modules to access internet resources. However, the only way to use ESP8266 was the AT-commands slave mode. You had to use an Arduino as the primary board anyway.Nonetheless, ESP8266 is a powerful chip which can easily act on its own without any assistance from another MCU. There are boards on the market entirely built around ESP8266; the popular examples are WEMOS and NodeMCU.The new 0.25.0 release of XOD brings all necessary changes to make it possible for compiling and uploading to ESP8266-based boards natively right from within IDE.Of course, an ESP8266 board without internet access is weird. So, XOD now carries a new library xod-dev/esp8266-mcu. The nodes inside it are very similar to those available for the AT-mode, but they work with the built-in Wi-Fi.
