I know the Esp8266WiFi library is for posting directly from the esp module itself. But the esp8266 board programming is messy.

And I know I can post data with a uno/esp module via at commands.

What is the simplest post i could make without having to build a website with db myself or even using a service like heroku or firebase which still requires fiddling with those proprietary apis before making a post.

Is there a post i can make using uno/esp to anywhere that a user just getting into this espwifi world can see how easy it is to post something to the cloud?

That's not what I meant. Sorry I wasn't very clear. I don't want to use the Esp8266WiFi library because it excludes the mcu. I want to use the Uno and the Esp module.

And I don't want to use any web service because that also makes it more complicated. I was wondering if I could use simple AT commands to make a post to a service that didn't require configuration or even to some localhost default service?

I just want to make a quick demo of how to post something simple from the Esp.
