Usage

platformio remote device list [OPTIONS]
pio remote device list [OPTIONS]

# List devices from the specified agents. Multiple agents are allowed.
platformio remote --agent NAME device list [OPTIONS]

Description

List Serial Ports on remote machines where PIO Remote™ Agent is started.

You can list devices from the specified remote machines using --agent NAME option between “remote” & “device” sub-commands. For example, you have run platformio remote agent start --name command with “home” and “office” options:

  • platformio remote agent start --name home
  • platformio remote agent start --name office

Now, to list devices from office machine please use platformio remote --agent office device list.

Multiple agents are allowed ( platformio remote --agent lab1 --agent lab3 device ...).

platformio remote device monitor

Over-The-Air (OTA) Serial Port Monitor

Usage

platformio remote device monitor [OPTIONS]
pio remote device monitor [OPTIONS]

# Connect to a specified agent
platformio remote --agent NAME device monitor [OPTIONS]
platformio remote -a NAME device monitor [OPTIONS]

Description

Connect to Serial Port of remote device Over-The-Air (OTA) and receive or send data in real time. PIO Remote™ Agent should be started before.

To control monitor please use these “hot keys”:

  • Ctrl+C Quit
  • Ctrl+T Menu
  • Ctrl+T followed by Ctrl+H Help

Options

-p, --port

Port, a number or a device name

-b, --baud

Set baud rate, default 9600

--parity

Set parity (None, Even, Odd, Space, Mark), one of [N, E, O, S, M], default N

--rtscts

Enable RTS/CTS flow control, default Off

--xonxoff

Enable software flow control, default Off

--rts

Set initial RTS line state, default 0

--dtr

Set initial DTR line state, default 0

--echo

Enable local echo, default Off

--encoding

Set the encoding for the serial port (e.g. hexlify, Latin1, UTF-8), default UTF-8.

-f, --filter

Add text transformation. Available filters:

  • colorize Apply different colors for received and echo
  • debug Print what is sent and received
  • default Remove typical terminal control codes from input
  • direct Do-nothing: forward all data unchanged
  • nocontrol Remove all control codes, incl. CR+LF
  • printable Show decimal code for all non-ASCII characters and replace most control codes
--eol

End of line mode (CR, LF or CRLF), default CRLF

--raw

Do not apply any encodings/transformations

--exit-char

ASCII code of special character that is used to exit the application, default 3 (DEC, Ctrl+C).

For example, to use Ctrl+] run platformio remote device monitor --exit-char 29.

--menu-char

ASCII code of special character that is used to control miniterm (menu), default 20 (DEC)

---quiet

Diagnostics: suppress non-error messages, default Off
