I bought one of theses cheaps & generic Wemos D1 MINI PRO with ESP-8266 to make a system to connect my lamp with google home etc.
But the problem is to upload the code into wemos. The Arduino IDE do not recognize the USB port that is connected.
When I connect to my Mac the board flashes the blue LED, so I suppose that it's not dead or something. I've tried 5 different cables e nothing. I've read some articles about drivers to install but is only for Sierra or High Sierra. Also, uninstalled and installed the arduino IDE. I installed the ESP8266 Boards in the Boards Manager. I tested it out with an Arduino UNO board and it recognized normally.
I have no idea what to do. I don't have a windows PC in my house to test it out, as well.
Here the pics of the board:
