live-serial: real-time serial port plotter/logger

live-serial is a simple package that ties pyserial, matplotlib and csv together to create a real-time plotter and logger of serial port data. This is intended to make life easier for people who work with sensors who need to see real-time feedback when they interact with the sensors.


pip install live-serial
cd live-serial

This will install live-serial and run all the unit tests to make sure that your local setup is working correctly.

Start Monitoring

The package includes a script that starts the plotting and logging. Although the script is documented internally, the most common use cases are: COM3 -logdir C:\sensordata\

on a Windows machine, and: /dev/ttyACM0 -logdir ~/sensordata

for linux or MacOS. To see a full list of examples and command-line arguments, type -examples.

API Documentation

Full API documentation is hosted at github pages.
