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.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
