GCodeSender v1, the Better Arduino Serial Window

GCodeSender has been updated from v0 to v1.

The arduino serial window is great if all you want to do is send a few lines of text. GCodeSender started as a tool to send whole files of instructions, one line at a time. All the Arduino has to do is send “>” (without the quotes) to signal that it is ready for the next line.

I’ve just added a new command line and a send button so that it more closely matches the Arduino Serial Window. Think of it as “Arduino Serial Window++”.

Anyone care to add a history of recent commands sent? That would save a lot of typing.

    I would like to program my Arduino++ using the serial window. How can I load the codes into the Arduino using this window? I can’t find a button on it to load the codes.

      You’ll need to use Arduino (windows+osx) or inotools (on linux) to upload your firmware. It’s like… the firmware will teach the arduino how to listen and talk, and then the serial window is the phone you use to have a conversation.
