In case you decide to go with a Dash button anyways, I made it easier: https://github.com/ipartola/amadash

I like the dash buttons because for the price you actually get decent value. Compared to an ESP8266 board, you also get the button, the case, and the battery. The interface for it is not th best, but this actually lets you monitor for many button presses from a single Linux node, so I think this is the cheapest solution.

That is not to discourage anyone from learning how to solder, or make their own electronics, but in case you have a bunch of these Dash buttons around already.
