A serial monitor for USB Serial devices.
usb-ser-mon.py will automatically detect your connected USB Serial device and print the output from it.
This is similar in functionality to the Arduino serial monitor, except that usb-ser-mon.py deals with the device disconnects automtically, and will wait for your device to reconnect.
If you have more than one USB device connected, you can use the -s option to specify the serial number of the device you wish to connect to, or use the -n command to specify the device vendor.
Currently, this program only works under linux.
It was tested with the following devices:
- Teensy 3.1
- STM32F4DISCOVERY board
- Prolific USB to Serial adapter
Download or checkout this repository. With a terminal opened in the project directory. Install using pip:
pip install .
If you want to edit the files in this directory and use them, install in edit mode:
pip install -e .
Use -l to list all of the connected devices.
will show you the currently connected devices, for example:
USB Serial Device with vendor 'Teensyduino' serial '21973' found @/dev/ttyACM1 USB Serial Device with vendor 'Prolific_Technology_Inc.' found @/dev/ttyUSB0 USB Serial Device with vendor 'STMicroelectronics' serial '00000000050C' found @/dev/ttyACM0
If you want to connect with the STM device (an STM32FDISCOVERY board in this situation), then you might do:
./usb-ser-mon.py -n Teensy
and then see:
USB Serial device with vendor 'Teensyduino' serial '21973' connected @/dev/ttyACM1 >>>
In the previous example the Teensy was already connected. If I unplug and replug the Teensy device then I'd see:
USB Serial device @ /dev/ttyACM1 disconnected. Waiting for USB Serial Device with vendor 'Teensy' ... USB Serial device with vendor 'Teensyduino' serial '21973' connected @/dev/ttyACM1 Done executing '/src/main.py' Micro Python for Teensy 3.1 Type "help()" for more information. >>>
You only need to use as many characters as are required to uniquely identify a
device, so I could use
./usb-ser-mon.py -n STM to connect to the
Use Control-X to exit from usb-ser-mon.py.
mk-udev-rules-stm32.sh script will create the appropriate udev rules
for the STM32F4 series processors.
mk-udev-rules-pyboard.sh script will create the appropriate udev rules
for the MicroPython pyboard.
mk-udev-rules-teensy.sh script will create the appropriate udev rules
for the Teensy 3.1 board.
