XBee Interface for the Mac

Programming XBees on the Mac isn’t as easy as I would like it to be because there aren’t any GUI interfaces like the Digi XCTU for Windows. I decided to build one in python using Tkinter and pyserial. Here is an initial version which I will be improving soon.

In this current version you must use a search term (above usb) to open a serial port at 9600 baud rate. Usually most XBee USB dongles or USB->Serial converters show up with a ‘usb’ in the path.

A more advanced version will be coming soon!

I also worked on putting my favorite drawings up on my website:

And of course the infamous Action Park Album, which you’ll have to ask about if you want to hear. Or just bug Gabe. But a hint, in that it sounds like those 4 above sang it.
