Multiple Serial Devices in One Terminal, from John Donnal:
My good friend and all around computer genius [Jim] has produced quite a nice terminal program that can host multiple serial devices in a single prompt. Its super easy to use. In hurry? Grab the git repo: https://git.jim.sh/jim/terminal.git. Just add all the devices you want to display as command line arguments and *presto* you have a color coded super prompt.
This is a great tool for debugging multiple devices at once. My latest project involves an EZ430 wireless kit and unfortunately I don’t have the $$ for IAR or CodeWorks. *yet*. So I am forced to use gcc which is cool but the Simpliciti network stack for the EZ430 has to be ported over and there are all sorts of hiccups and bugs that plague this sort of wireless network setup.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
