Hi,

I'm starting to work with PlatformIO for ESP32 develpment and would like to use a program that provides similar functionality to the Arduino IDE's serial plotter.

Using the Arduino IDE, I can send data for plotting, such as:

Serial.print(AValue); Serial.print(" "); Serial.println(BValue);

and can see this plotted as two graphs. I can also print a couple of fixed values at the extremes in order to disable the auto-scaling.

I'm wondering if MegunoLink provides this functionality WITHOUT adding your plotting library. That may be an option for down the road, but I'd like to start with that basic functionality in a plotter before moving onto something requiring yet another library.

Don't worry about it. I found something else that'll do the trick.

Yep we do require the specific message formatting for MegunoLink.

Cheers
