Using ESP8266v1 to connect to

Hi everyone, i'm a newbie of Arduino :grinning: , so this is my first time i'm writing to this forum so you know that :grinning: , and my problem is that i want to send data to Adafruit by using ESP8266 v1, i have googled but it seems like there aren't not many documentations, most of that they're using ESP8266 v12, which makes me confused :sob: , so i need your help, thanks everyone :wink:
