Micropython ESP8266 home project: Set up Pycharm SDK environment

PyCharm is a good python software development environment. For home DIY projects, ESP8266 is a good microcontroller with an embedded Wifi antenna. So, we can upload data into a webserver. Also, the webserver can enable the microcontroller to do some automation work.
