There is also cnc.js which looks interesting.

Hi guys,

Managed to get my TinyG wired and setup up, and used Coolterm and Chillipeppr OK.
Seems to run faster than the Gshield setup. I had to change some settings though.
I changed the velocity and feed rates for X and Y axis from 16000 to 2000 because it was looking a bit unstable at those speeds. Z axis is 800 as the instructions say.
The motor power management was confusing too, says to set it at '0' in the instructions but '0' is disabled in TinyG, so the motors wouldn't move when I jogged them. Only when I changed to '3' (on so that they powered up during movement) that they could be jogged, settings 1 and 2 probably work too.
Overall pretty pleased with the TinyG.

Motor management - you are correct - the Configuration wiki needs updating since the changes made to power management, which are summarized here:

$_pm=3 is usually the best choice

Ace, wasn't sure to use $_pm 2 or 3, but luckily chose 3.
