  • Serial File Transfer

    It would be nice to have integrated serial file transfer in Workshop. (if it's already there, I'm missing it...)
    Unplugging the SD card and plugging it into a PC and copying files over then unplugging and plugging it back into the Display is really awkward, especially if you do a lot of testing that involves tweaking graphics as you go and having to update the GCI files repeatedly or if you are using sub-programs.

    It could be something like:

    1. Compile code
    2. Download code
    a. prompt for file transfer (similar to what ViSi does)
    b. if yes, load the SPE Tool
    c. perform serial transfer of required files
    d. download actual code

    I'm OK with it being slow.

    Anyway, keep up the great work guys!

    Unfortuately SD cards in SPI mode don't write all that fast.

    You only get about 20kBytes/sec, so unless the file is very small it will be a lot slower than slow.
