ESP8266 library

Hello!

I am new to arduino and just picked up myself an UNO and an ESP8266 module. I’ve managed to wire them all up properly and connected to my home network using the AT commands.

But now im trying to follow tutorials on the internet but the problem is every example includes a library
#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
such as this example tutorial ESP8266 Thing Hookup Guide - learn.sparkfun.com

So I have tried googling for it but can’t find anything. I’m assuming thats because its really simple and Im missing something quite obvious.

help? :confused:

The site you link to is using the Arduino IDE to directly program the ESP8266 (no Arduino or AT commands). The library is contained in the "core" files that are included in the add-on to the IDE. This page ESP8266 add on explains how to install the add on.
