I need to make or modify a GUI for Windows and/or Linux, that will take USB data from my Boarduino and graph it on a colored bar graph in REAL TIME. It would be a plus if I could also add audio to the GUI as well; as the graph changes the tone would change higher or lower, accordingly.
I've done a very little bit of programming, mostly in earlier versions of Flash (ActionScript), and many years ago using basic, and I've fooled around with the Arduino interfaces like Processing. But they don't seem to be able to give me a full-screen, user-friendly GUI of the kind I'm after. And I didn't want to devote a whole lot of time learning a complex language just to write one application and make it work.
I was hoping, therefore, that someone out there could suggest some site or software development resource, or even a language that is very simple to learn and use. I think some borrowed, modifiable code may do the trick, for an existing app.
Maybe I'm naive, but it just seems like there should be lots of open source applications I could fool around with and modify for my purposes. But I've combed many sites via Google and found nothing close to what I am searching for. What I envisioned was a kind of tinker toy development environment where one just kind of drags and drops blocks of code that have specific functions, and then cobble them together. Does this kind of thing exist?
If I'm stuck needing to learn some language, what would be the simplest one that might fill my needs as I described them above?
Regards, and Thanks
