Does anyone know a source for a tutorial how to control a LEGO EV3 with WL?
In the meantime I was able to set up a connection between WL/MMA and my EV3. It was (at the end) very simple, but since I don't know anything about Serial Communications I had to figure out a few things.
In fact, only one line was necessary to set up the connection:
dev = DeviceOpen["Serial", "/dev/tty.EV3-SerialPort"]
I will report later on on further steps. Currently I'm trying to read the device...
I worked with Mindstorms many moons ago. Their (IMO very stupid) stock IDE is based on NI Labquest, which I find to be an unmitigated disaster in the vein of many attempts to give programming abilities to people whose eyes glaze over at the sight of code. If you don't want to replace stock firmware, I think your best strategy is to try to repurpose anything you find that will connect Wolfram to Labview. Sadly, Wolfram's official package is proprietary and closed-source. Shocking, I know.
