Meshtastic

Anyone familiar with Python? GUI Install Improvements

The GUI install tool we use is pretty handy and I’d say it has allowed a lot of people to get Meshtastic installed in quick time. I reckon it would be sweet to Meshtasticize it a little. Perhaps if you know Python you might be keen to fork it and take a look. https://github.com/esphome/esphome-flasher

The main changes I see that would be handy are:

I’m no programmer but I did dig around and found where the baud rate was set but from that point, I got no idea! I’m sure it would be trivial to the right person.

Just a thought anyway.

Just another thought. A stretch goal could be to incorporate some of the app functionality for messaging, settings, maps etc. Be handy for those of us with only one phone!

I think this is a great idea and not a not super huge amount of work for someone that has some python experience.

Bump. Plenty of new community members have been playing with the Python API. Any takers on this project?
