Small and simple software for plotting data from serial port in realtime.
You can install SerialPlot for Ubuntu/Linux Mint (and other ubuntu based distributions) via Ubuntu PPA. Use below commands to add ppa to your system and install SerialPlot.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hyozd/serialplot apt update apt install serialplot
You can obtain windows installation packages from downloads section.
apt install qtbase5-dev libqt5serialport5-dev cmake mercurial
Qwt is the library that provides plotting widgets for SerialPlot. You have 3 different options for Qwt.
Leave it to serialplot build scripts. Qwt will be downloaded over
SVN and built for you. You should have
svn installed for this.
If your linux distribution has
package, install it and set
BUILD_QWT cmake option to
You can use Mercurial to download SerialPlot source code. Or you can download it from here: https://bitbucket.org/hyOzd/serialplot/downloads
hg clone https://hyOzd@bitbucket.org/hyOzd/serialplot cd serialplot mkdir build && cd build cmake .. make
You can also build with QtCreator IDE using
On Ubuntu 16.04 / Linux Mint 18, removing USB serial device while it
is open in SerialPlot, causes application to go into a nasty loop
and eventually it crashes. This is a bug of Qt 5.5. I have uploaded
a patched version of the problematic
libqt5serialport5 package to
launchpad ppa. If you install SerialPlot from there, you shouldn't
have any problems.
Port error 13 happens when closing. This is a Qt issue. It's known to not happen with Qt 5.4.1 . Not fatal.
