Hi Folks,

I've written a small utility in Python + Tkinter to provide easy serial console + filesystem access to uPython. I've only tested it against the an ESP8266 NodeMCU board on Windows. But it's fairly small (< 400 lines) and only requires a couple publicly available Python libraries.

You can find it here: https://github.com/casten/uPythonHelper

I'm open to bug fix + pull requests as my time allows.

I hope folks find it useful.

Thanks !

It works on Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 64 bits) after installing the following dependencies :
$ sudo apt-get install python3-tk
$ sudo pip3 install serial_device2
Tested on WeMos D1 Mini (ESP8266), connected "Port/Device" is '/dev/ttyUSB0'.

All file functions work well.

But the terminal is not perfect : backspace and arrows don't work.
