What's The Whitecat Create Agent?
The communication between the agent and the IDE is made using websockets, and the communication between the agent and the Lua RTOS device is made through a serial port connection.
For your convenience the agent is running in the background and is started automatically when the computer boots. In the initial state the agent is sleeping, until The Whitecat IDE is opened, which it has a minimal impact in the performance of your computer.
Please note you need probably to download and install drivers for your board's USB-TO-SERIAL adapter for Windows and Mac OSX versions. The GNU/Linux version usually doesn't need any drivers. This drivers are required for connect to your board through a serial port connection.

For Linux, the currently logged user should have read and write access the sUSB-TO-SERIAL device. On most Linux distributions, this is done by adding the user to dialout group with the following command:
$ sudo usermod -a -G dialout $USER
