CLI Loader – Punch Through. Our friends at Punch Through sent this along and we’re helping to get the word out!
Punch Through just released their new cross platform loader for the Bean and Bean+. This new loader greatly improves the experience on Windows, and supports Linux for the first time ever.
In order to release it quickly, they decided to publish a command line version first. This means there is no graphical user interface, instead everything is done from the command line. They are collecting feedback while they develop the graphical versions. However, some users may prefer the command line loader. This is not yet replacing their graphical macOS app, but it runs on macOS as well.
Currently the cross-platform loader supports these functions:
– Scan and connect to Beans (Bean and Bean+)
– Update firmware
– Blink the onboard LED
– Program sketches
– Read accelerometer
– Log serial data
– Send serial messages
