I'm using the Visual Studio Code extension to develop for Arduino which works great.
It doesn't have a Serial Plotter like the regular Arduino IDE, which I need to debug this project. I can run the Arduino IDE's Serial Plotter alongside Visual Studio Code without too much of a problem.
However, if I try to compile and upload from Visual Studio Code while the Arduino IDE is running, the port is busy (not a surprise):
avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "/dev/cu.usbmodem14201": Resource busy An error occurred while uploading the sketch
So I have to keep exiting and relaunching the Arduino IDE every time I build.
Anyone have a suggestion for how to work around this? Using an iMac as development environment.
