Any chance that this behavior might get an upgrade in the future (not sure of your roadmap)? I realize that this thread is old, and my request has to do with Micropython boards in general, but it seems that OpenMV would become even more useful for the budding MP coder (like me) if the REPL was usable in the Serial Terminal in the main window.
Use Case for Micropythonistas
I have looked all over the net for a decent IDE for Picropython that is easy to use, doesn’t look like it was built for 5 year olds, and has all of the tools I need to code and run/iterate in one place. Thonny and Mu are not what I am looking for, and VS Code and Atom are plagued with plugin incompatibilities that constantly keep me from being able to reliably connect to the boards.
OpenMV has it all
I would love to use it all the time, as it is easy and has all of the views I need in the main window, with the exception of one: the REPL.
Add the REPL to the Main Window?
Is is possible to add a terminal window section (possibly named REPL) to the main window next to the current “Serial Terminal” (possibly renamed to “Debug Output”)? This way, all of the interfacing tools necessary to integrate code quickly could be integrated into the main window for speed of workflow? It would also allow an easy toggle view between the debug output and the REPL.
