I’m having the Particle manipulate some raw data from a sensor, and I need that to be outputted on my computer screen. How would I do this? I’m rather new to this all. Thanks in advance.
Just use a terminal emulator like Putty, RealTerm, SecureCRT, and many other.
To output some values to the computer screen, you need to do two things:
On the Photon code --> use the “Serial” functions to output data through the micro usb or the TX-RX pins. Follow this guide for more info: https://docs.particle.io/reference/firmware/photon/#serial
On the computer side --> If you’re on Windows, your best bet is to use Putty. Here’s another guide you can follow: http://kb.cyberoam.com/default.asp?id=2193
If you’re on Linux (Ubuntu), you can use “python miniterm” out “screen”.
Hope this helps!
