Hey all!

I just got Scoppy to work on my pico / tablet, and it has me excited about possibly making something similar. 

I couldn't make heads or tails of the Scoppy source code, but I figure it has to be two basic things with a lot of polish on top:

1. Set the Pico up to talk to an android tablet 

2. Make an android app thay listens to the Pico over the OTG cable. 

Anyone have any experience or advice on how to get the bare-bones template working so I can make my own project?

Thanks for any and all help!

My approach is to first make a backup, the run the aIDETools/Auto Format. Now identify and delete any fluff code (and most wrong, irrelevant or obvious commr=entsb like a  Maybe replace large blocks of repetitive code with a one line comment. As a second pass do a little structuring, create external black box funcions for well defined extensions
