Wiring Arduino Uno with NODEMCU for wifi connectivity

Hi All,

I am new to Arduino and I have bought NodeMCU esp12, but I don't know how to connect it to the Arduino. When I try to connect the NodeMCU directly to the Arduino Ide, I couldn't upload the Blink sketch to test it, and I don't see the serial port to upload the sketch.

Your help is appreciated.

Best regards,
Ahmed
