Is there a built in Serial Plotter?

Arduino IDE has a simple Serial plotter. I am wondering if VS Code PlatformIO has one provided by default?

I suspect this question has been asked before but I could not find it.

my guess is that, it would be easier to just use the arduino plotter

There’s no bultin serial plotter, but alternatives are listed in pre-existing threads about this topic.

You can always use the Arduino plotter even if you’re using PlatformIO as your editor. Just make sure you don’t have a serial monitor going in PlatformIO (aka, make sure the serial port is available).
Fire up the Arduino plotter. Works like a charm :slight_smile:
