Connect Arduino Uno using Applescript
Since LiveCode can not currently connect reliably to the Arduino Uno (ATmega8U2 not the FTDI version) . I have provided this stack in order to show how it is still possible to use the Arduino Uno with LiveCode.

This stack demonstrates how to connect, send, and receive data from the Arduino Uno from within LiveCode using Applescript with the SerialPort X.osax from http://mysite.verizon.net/vzenuoqe/MacSoft.html .

1. You will need to install the SerialPort X.osax
2. You will need to install the Arduino IDE
3. You will need to have an Arduino Uno and have it connected to your USB port
4. Do not connect the Arduino Uno to a USB HUB since it will not work in most cases
5. You will need to download a sketch to the Arduino from within the Arduino IDE.
Sample Sketches are included as well as detailed instructions on how to set this up.

Enjoy, Tom McGrath III

Tom's web site has moved or closed. The author of the OSAX seems to still be in business here:
