The Arduino IDE doesn’t do much with serial data returned from the board, other than display it on the serial console. Python provides a platform independent way to listen to your Arduino and draw graphs of analog data, or whatever you want. The code below provides a stripchart display based on the assumption that lines of
millis(), A0, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5
format are coming back from the Arduino on the serial port. It’s hardcoded with port and speed, but easy to edit. I think the indents are OK, but this blog platform strips out the tabs on pasting…
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
