Serial monitor auto-connect?

In the Particle Dev atom editor, is there a way to have the Serial Monitor automatically connect? I’m having trouble debugging what’s going on in my setup() function.

You can always put in a delay, or have it wait for serial input before advancing. Either of those might mess with cloud related features though, so make sure those go first.

Thanks. I’ll do that for now to keep it simple. However I’d love to find a way to have it auto-retry connecting until it succeeds.

download visual studio and write your own basic serial monitor that behaves that way?

Or use the serial pins (instead of the USB port) to a serial dongle, the virtual serial port to the dongle will never drop, it doesn’t know the particle was reset.

I think you can use

 particle serial monitor --follow
