Serial Monitor?

Post by hdsjulian » Mon Dec 03, 2018 8:44 pm

Recently switched from Arduino to Micropython (using an ESP32). One thing I actually liked in the Arduino IDE (everything else is terrible) is its serial monitor, to which I can output for example the analog readings of a sensor...

Is there something similar for MicroPython?

Like Arduino, by default print statements output to the serial interface, and you cann see them e.g. a terminal emulator like putty or screen or picocom. If your questions is about the Arduino IDE, please look at the discussion about suitable IDE's. There are quite a few, and everyone has a favorite, up to no IDE at all.

What i mean is that the Arduino IDE offers a way to plot these outputs directly. I understand how to simply output the data but i'd like a live plot.
