Making ESP8266 breadboard friendly

Just receive some samples of the ESP-01 board. My first thought was how to use it with a breadboard?.

Doing some Web research found several custom adapters and DIY ideas.

After some brainstorming and a couple of coffees find out a simple procedure to have the ESP8266 nicely plugged in my breadboard.

The solution implies to cut four pins and solder a four pin 0.1 right-angle male header.


The adhesive silicone dot helps to plug the module leveled.




The following images explain  themselves:
