Can and if so how can the Particle CLI Monitor be used to have flow control to the serial stream?
Particle Document claims one can use the Arduino IDE app serial monitor to monitor Particle particles. How is this setup?
Got my first Argon a couple of days ago. Been playing with ESP8266 for a few months and Arduino for a few months prior to that. Mesh capabilities attracted me to the Particle platform. I’m making some progress. Have (so far) only used Particle Web IDE. (Not Workbench.) Was expecting/assuming/hoping/wishing there was a built in monitor capability similar to the Arduino Web IDE. (If there is I couldn’t find it.) Eventually ran into the Particle CLI and got that installed and running on my Windows 10 machine. Got the CLI serial monitor capability monitoring my Argon application but I couldn’t figure out anyway to pause or flow control the serial output. The Arduino, of course, has a checkbox for autoscroll which comes in real handy for debugging allowing to look back at what’s been printed. I found in the Particle Docs that the Arduino Serial Monitor will work. https://docs.particle.io/support/particle-devices-faq/serial-faq/#arduino-ide
However I couldn’t get it to work. It would (apparently) attach to the serial port but wouldn’t print anything. In fact at times it would attach so solidly I couldn’t kill the Ardunio app without either unplugging the Argon from the USB port or using Task Manager to kill the Arduino App (which killed the monitor window.)
