WebREPL (REPL over WebSockets, accessible via a web browser) is an
experimental feature available in ESP8266 port. Download web client
from https://github.com/micropython/webrepl , and start daemon using::
from https://github.com/micropython/webrepl (hosted version available
at http://micropython.org/webrepl), and start the daemon on a device
using::
import webrepl
webrepl.start()
(Release version will have it started on boot by default.)
(Release versions have it started on boot by default.)
On a first connection, you will be prompted to set password for future
sessions to use.
The supported way to use WebREPL is by connecting to ESP8266 access point,
but the daemon is also started on STA interface if it is active, so if your
routers is set up and works correctly, you may also use it while connecting
to your normal Internet access point (use ESP8266 AP connection method if
face any issues).

WebREPL is an experimental feature and a work in progress, and has known
issues. There's also provision to transfer (both upload and download)
files over WebREPL connection, but it has unstable status (be ready to
reboot a module in case of issues). It still may be a practical way to
issues.
There's also provision to transfer (both upload and download)
files over WebREPL connection, but it has even more experimental status
than the WebREPL terminal mode. It is still a practical way to
get script files onto ESP8266, so give it a try using ``webrepl_cli.py``
from the repository above. See forum for other community-supported
alternatives to transfer files to ESP8266.
