Best possible approach is to use MQTT as communication and the app MQTT Dash to create a tile design just as you want it.

Well once you have MQTT broker on a local server (RaspberryPi being the cheapest) I'll advice to go for NodeRed which has a very nice extension to easily build up GUI via WebPages not having to know any language (if you are skilled with java and/or angular you can make awesome things then :) ).

You do not understand.
I control EasyEsp via the HTTP Request Shortcuts application
