WiFi example for mbed OS, fork from https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os-example-wifi

This is a quick example of a simple WiFi application using the WiFi and network-socket APIs that is provided as a part of mbed-os

The program brings up the WiFi and the underlying network interface, and uses it to scans available networks, connects to a network, prints interface and connection details and performs simple HTTP operation.

This example has been used on the following platforms

Note: The ISM43362 WIFI Driver developed by ST Team can also be integrated in the mbed-os-example-client example.

mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 19 *(the mbed target board the WiFi shield gets connected to shouldn't have any other network interface e.g. Ethernet)*
mbed_official 0:857719181846 20
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 21 ESP8266 is a fallback option and will be used if the build is for unsupported platform.
mbed_official 0:857719181846 22
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 23 #### Connecting the ESP8266 ####
mbed_official 27:b3c6dba3b6e9 24 To connect the ESP8266 module to your development board, look at the [ESP8266 Cookbook page](https://developer.mbed.org/users/4180_1/notebook/using-the-esp8266-with-the-mbed-lpc1768/). In general, this means hooking up the ESP8266 TX pin to `D0` and the ESP8266 RX pin to `D1` on your development board.
mbed_official 6:9944c5308062 25
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 26 **Note:** on NUCLEO development boards, pins `D0` and `D1` are used for serial communication with the computer. Use pins `D8` (to ESP8266 TX) and `D2` (to ESP8266 RX) instead.
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 27
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 28 #### Connecting the X-NUCLEO-IDW01M1 ####
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 29 To connect the [X-NUCLEO-IDW01M1](https://developer.mbed.org/components/X-NUCLEO-IDW01M1/) expansion board to your NUCLEO development board, just plug the expansion board on top of the NUCLEO board using the Morpho connector.

mbed_official 0:857719181846 31 ## Getting started
mbed_official 0:857719181846 32
mbed_official 0:857719181846 33 1. Import the example
mbed_official 0:857719181846 34
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 35 ```
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 36 mbed import mbed-os-example-wifi
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 37 cd mbed-os-example-wifi
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 38 ```
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 39 2. Configure the WiFi shield to use
mbed_official 0:857719181846 40
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 41 Edit ```mbed_app.json``` to include correct WiFi shield, SSID and Password:
mbed_official 0:857719181846 42
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 43 ```
mbed_official 33:12f0df4d51d7 44 "config": {
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 45 "wifi-shield": {
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 46 "help": "Options are WIFI_ESP8266, WIFI_IDW01M1",
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 47 "value": "WIFI_IDW01M1"
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 48 },
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 49 "wifi-ssid": {
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 50 "help": "WiFi SSID",
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 51 "value": "\"SSID\""
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 52 },
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 53 "wifi-password": {
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 54 "help": "WiFi Password",
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 55 "value": "\"Password\""
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 56 }
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 57 },
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 58 ```
mbed_official 0:857719181846 59
mbed_official 33:12f0df4d51d7 60 For built-in WiFi, ignore the value of `wifi-shield`
mbed_official 33:12f0df4d51d7 61
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 62 3. Copy the respective _ignore_ file to `.mbedignore`
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 63 * Copy `esp8266-mbedignore` when using ESP8266 module.
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 64 * Copy `idw01m1-mbedignore` when using [X-NUCLEO-IDW01M1](https://developer.mbed.org/components/X-NUCLEO-IDW01M1/) expansion board.
mbed_official 33:12f0df4d51d7 65 * For built-in WiFi, keep the default `.mbedignore`
mbed_official 33:12f0df4d51d7 66
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 67 4. Compile and generate binary
mbed_official 0:857719181846 68
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 69 For example, for `GCC`:
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 70
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 71 ```
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 72 mbed compile -t GCC_ARM -m UBLOX_EVK_ODIN_W2
mbed_official 32:bca3f5f442b3 73 ```
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 74
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 75 5. Open a serial console session with the target platform using the following parameters:
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 76 * **Baud rate:** 9600
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 77 * **Data bits:** 8
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 78 * **Stop bits:** 1
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 79 * **Parity:** None
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 80
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 81 6. Copy or drag the application `mbed-os-example-wifi.bin` in the folder `mbed-os-example-wifi/BUILD/<TARGET NAME>/<PLATFORM NAME>` onto the target board.
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 82
mbed_official 36:aa0b6789bbd2 83 7. The serial console should display a similar output to below, indicating a successful WiFi connection:
