How to run

To use, simply run command below in the command line providing serial port to be used and optionally port baud rate and timeout values.

$ ./wx_mpl_dynamic_graph.py [-h] [-b BAUDRATE] [-t TIMEOUT] port

For instance, to receive data from com4 port with baud rate equal to 9600 run

$ ./wx_mpl_dynamic_graph.py com4 --baudrate 9600

To display help menu run the command below.

$ ./wx_mpl_dynamic_graph.py --help

Note: Make sure you have your Arduino IDE closed, or it will block other programs like this one from using the serial port.
