How to access USB ports from c9 IDE?


I have setup a developement enviroment for a wifi module. I would like to flash the firmware in the module through the c9 ide. But how to access/configure USB ports?


afaik, that is not possible. it is a web ui, everything is done remotely. you’d have to run the project locally to access usb ports.


can this be achieved by serial port redirecter?


idk, maybe. if the device uses a com port, physical or virtual.


It would require some way to communicate with the machine.

A combination of a c9 plugin and a chrome extension can do this, but we have no intentions of creating that at this time ourselves, but the SDK is freely available for both c9 and chrome if you would like to make one.
