Post HTC_Tester v1.0 Release
Hi-Technic Controller Tester
    Features
  • Autoconfiguration based upon controllers attached
  • Motor and servo control
  • Great UI
    Instructions
  • Utilize the arrow buttons to change the numbers
  • Press and release the orange button to select a port or controller or to switch lines
  • Press and hold the orange button to run the selected motor or servo
  • Utilize the grey exit button to repick ports or controllers and to exit
    Uses
  • General
    * Great for testing prototypes!
    * Excellent for finding good motor speeds and servo positions before programming them into your code
    * Provides a reliable way to test if a motor or servo controller is broken - if the HTC_Tester cannot detect it, it is permanently or temporarily broken
    * Provides a reliable way to test if a motor or servo itself is broken
  • During A Tournament
    * Use it before a match to determine if the battery is low enough to replace, if motors are dead, if controllers are dead, etc.
    * Perfect for reseting part of your robot! - For example, a lift powered by a motor or a servo used to control a deadbolt
  • To Be Done
    * Add preferences which will be carried between runs via a plaintext file
    Changelog
    -v1.0
  • Initial release
    Credits
  • Xander Soldaat for his invaluable libraries and his help in debugging this program
  • MHTS (Titan Robotics) because I ripped off their UI style xD
    License
    This program is free of charge, available under the GNU General Public License v3.0.

I have a Q for you, are you keeping the drivers from the suite in line with what I have on the master Github repo? If not, it would be good to make a note of this on your Github repo in a README.md file in the root.
