 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,
I want to display a message from my Mac laptop on my 16x2 LCD display via my Arduino.

Ideally I would like AppleScript to send the text to my Arduino as that will integrate with the rest of my plans but if that is too tricky then the Mac Terminal is also good.

I have spent a while looking around the web but not found any answers.

Any advice and help would be great.

Thanks.

What was the question? What is difficult about opening the terminal application, and starting to type?

I want to send a text string from my laptop to the Arduino.

No typing.

Cheers.

I haven't tried it, but you could give SerialPort X a try.
