ESP8266 + GTK+ +wifi comunication

Hi all

i'm working right now on a project to control a indoor garden by wifi with an arduino, some relays, a tft lcd and a esp 8266.

I would like to know oh i can read eeprom variables via wifi and an apllication on gtk+ with AT command. I don't know how to get comunication between the gtk+ app and the esp 8266 with the ip adress and all the stuff.

What do you think about this ?

Tanks !
