You might be interested in B4R from Anywhere Software. https://www.b4x.com/b4r.html

"B4R is a 100% free development tool for native Arduino and ESP8266 programs.
B4R follows the same concepts of the other B4X tools, providing a simple and powerful development tool.
B4R, B4A, B4J and B4i together make the best development solution for the Internet of Things (IoT). "

Full disclosure: I am not affiliated with the company but I do use their B4A (paid) and B4J (free). They do have a great user forum for samples and help.

I also like the B4A software. Basically Visual Basic for android. The free version means you can get an app up and functioning very quickly.

Very interesting Basic software. Especially since my VB6 disk is hiding somewhere.

that seems to cover any embedded system with a network interface, whether it's in a TV or a door lock...
