Just wanted to let people know that a few of us are working on a Serial API that would be layered on top of streams.

"The Serial API provides a way for websites to read and write from a serial device through script. Such an API would bridge the web and the physical world, by allowing documents to communicate with devices such as microcontrollers, 3D printers, and other serial devices.”

Right now, we are just gathering use cases and requirements. Your input and participation would be greatly appreciated.

**Please comment in the GH issue tracker [2]. Many people working on the API are not subscribed to this list and are unlikely to respond!**

The spec can be viewed at [1]; the GH repository is at [2].
