USB Toolbox

Jay Kickliter in Cocoa, FX2LP, LibUSB, OS X, software


Since I’ve gotten into USB design using Cypress’ FX2LP chip, I’ve mainly been using command line tools to do control/bulk transfers. That gets old after a while, so I wrote this application. I’m not application developer, nor have any desire to be one. I only write one if it’ll help with some physical device I’m working on. So, USB Toolbox isn’t finished, and probably never will be. I’m only writing a post about it to target the very small audience of people who google some variation of “libusb & Cocoa”.




I post more details when add a couple features.


I put the source on github. Be warned, I’m new to git, and as of this post I think I may have messed up the repository. The source may be behind. If you have git skills, and need some pointers on getting started with USB, lets trade lessons:)
