and added it to the wiki:
It's ``just'' a Python program: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1FDV9 ... sp=sharingG-code sender GUIGcodeWriter_1.0.py Arduino G Code Sender Program. Python, python serial, and tcl/k (tkinter).
Would it be a suitable basis for a program which is:
- lightweight (suited to running on older, slower equipment and Raspberry Pis and the like)
- cross-platform (available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X)
- easily customizable by the (naïve) user
- would be available / runnable from a single file (or small collection of files) so that it would be available off-line
- could be expanded to include both routing/milling and 3D printing (and other functions such as probing?)
If so, is there interest in working on it collaboratively? If so, where would be a suitable place to host the code?
If not, what would be a better alternative? Processing?
I've been very pleased w/ Zapmaker's port of Kosme's GrblController: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Grbl_Controller but mislike that it uses a cross-platform toolkit which isn't what I'd consider fully native on Mac OS X (not that Python will be either), and would probably want a lighter-weight program for running on a Raspberry Pi.code sender GCtrl Processing Script to stream Gcode. c.f.
