SerialThing OS3/OS4/MOS

SerialThing: Serial Terminal And Control Thing

Serial Thing is a serial terminal written with Hollywood 8.0 It makes use of the new serial library feature introduced in 8.0, and the RapaGUI plugin, to provide a native GUI on any platform.

It started as an exercise to learn the Hollywood programming language and to have a terminal program with the features I needed most to interact with microcontrollers like the Arduino and Esp32/Esp8266, various serial LCD displays, voice command modules, etc. While I was at it I tried to make it as useful to others as possible.

SerialThing v1.0 OS3/OS4/MOS: Download

To run the program on OS4 and OS3:
- MUI4

To run the .hws script or .hwa applet:
- Hollywood8 or HollywoodPlayer8 (once released) and the RapaGUI plugin.

To compile for other platforms:
- Hollywood 8 and the RapaGUI plugin for that platform (if linking it)
- Adjust the serial port menu and requester to allow using a path to
specify a device like '/dev/ttyS0' or 'COM1', instead of a unit number
- Adjust the icon reference in the xml.hws file

- Copy the executable and its icon or the whole SerialThing drawer
wherever you like.

- Same as OS4 but replace the PPC executable with the 68k one from the
OS3 drawer. (Hollywood requires a 68020 or better)

Would this enable systems like the Vampire Standalone to use usb to serial devices?
TVPaint with pressure sensitivity only works with specific serial tablets, for instance. It'd be nice to have a serial to usb adapter work with the Vampire or even Amibian etc.
