Title: Interfacing Arduino with Python via PySerial
Post by: mcroydon on Jan 24, 2007, 08:17 pm
I recently picked up an Arduino and outlined how to use a serial connection with the Arduino and python on my weblog: http://www.postneo.com/2007/01/18/arduino-serial-communication-with-python.  Talking to serial devices can be a little easier than I outlined on a Unix-like system, but I like the cross-platform nature of PySerial: http://pyserial.sourceforge.net/.

I just thought I'd share in case anyone else was curious about interfacing the Arduino and Python.

Hey, cool.

Though it appears that your website has since been replaced by a landing page for GoDaddy.  Not sure what happened.

You might consider posting the tutorial or a link to it in the Arduino playground, interfacing section: http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/Interfacing

I'll put the information up on the playground later today.

The godaddy landing page is a bad combination of timing, a domain transfer, and the inability to log in to my account to set up DNS records.  I'll get that fixed as soon as I can though.

Excellent, thanks.

I'm also trying to migrate hosts, so I understand a bit of what you're struggling with.
