TcMenu - IoT ready menu designer and library for Arduino and mbed

TcMenu is a modular, IoT ready multi level menu library for Arduino, mbed, Pico-SDK, mbed and many more platforms supporting many input, display and IoT / remote interfaces. It makes presenting configuration, status and operational information much easier. Apache licensed and therefore safe for commercial use.

Start by working out what information and state is to be represented in the Designer UI. Take inspiration from the Arduino menu examples. Then, run Code Generator which outputs code for the selected board ready for use in an IDE.

At the moment PicoSDK is available and does not need Arduino or mbed environment present. The PicoSDK version is even open-soured, and all the libraries can build with the CMake build tool, the starting point for these builds is CMake based library build. If you want this support to continue, it is imperative you support the project, as we have no other funding sources for it.

Specific for Java on Raspberry PI or embedded Linux

We have tested the designer application and embedCONTROL on a Raspberry PI, so not only can you make a Raspberry PI embedded application, you can even run designer and embedCONTROL on an RPI as well!

Remotely controlling your menu / IoT

IoT control with embedCONTROLOur menu designer can build in IoT capabilities near automatically (on Ethernet2, UipEthernet (ENC28J60), ESP8266-WiFi, ESP32-WiFi, Bluetooth and Serial). Allowing you to remotely monitor and control your device using Embed Control with minimal effort.

However, to write your own remote monitoring, use our Java Remote API, TypeScript/JavaScript API, C#/DotNet API, or the Python API. Coming soon is a Dart API.
