JamesNewton writes, “I finally managed to write a USB OTG helper script for talking to the Bus Pirate.  The biggest problem I have with the Bus Pirate is that on the human side it speaks in very terse, hard to remember, codes.
The point of this script is to make that easy by providing a list of commands, with clear, English, descriptions, which then enter the code for you. You can edit it, then send that code to the device and see the response. If you setup a complex code that you will use often, you can save that code into the list with your own description.
It runs in DroidScript: DroidScript is a free app for Android that lets you write apps in JavaScript / HTML5 /on your phone or tablet/. Let me make that clear… you can /write/ the app on your phone! If you plug in a keyboard, it’s even pretty reasonable… but it also allows you to connect your workstation via browser and has a pretty nice IDE. ”
