EV3 + LeJOS + Kotlin + intellij: seeking collaboration

Postby salamanders » Sun Mar 04, 2018 9:25 pm

[Kotlin](https://medium.com/@octskyward/why-kotl ... 5c001e26e3) is IMHO a great programming language for education. I got it working on my EV3, with a development loop that is **almost** self-sufficient: IntelliJ coding, gradle build and deploy to the brick over WiFi, but then I have to run the app and see the console output using the Eclipse [EV3Control](https://lejosnews.wordpress.com/2014/04 ... otors-tab/)

I'm looking for help to make it completely self-sufficient so I don't have to hop between IDEs. I think it would require remotely running the app and capturing the console from a deploy script?

Project at https://github.com/salamanders/waller

For example, here is a line-following app:

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
println("Follow that line!")

RobotWheels().use { wheels ->
EV3ColorSensor(SensorPort.S3).use { lightSensor ->
val redSensorMode = lightSensor.redMode
val lightSample = FloatArray(redSensorMode.sampleSize())

var numSamples = 0
buildSequenceTime(msFromNow = 10_000).forEach {
redSensorMode.fetchSample(lightSample, 0)
// println("Light: ${lightSample[0]}")
if (lightSample[0] < .5) {
wheels.left = 1.0
wheels.right = 0.1
} else {
wheels.left = 0.1
wheels.right = 1.0
println("Done sensing, $numSamples")
println("Bye bye.")

If you like, you can build your examples on Java 9 and soon in Java 10 for EV3 Brick & Brick Pi 3 using the LeJOS port on EV3Dev:

Last week, we started the migration to Debian Stretch. Latest stable version is v0.7.0 for Debian Jessie.
