    I thought the same. However, there is actually a way, although it is a bit more hidden and it isn't defined in the official documentation. In short, you can access that functionality not through MSHub, but through hub. Take a look at the example mshub_vs_hub, where I explain it in more detail. (If that link doesn't work, try this one then).

    Natively, I'm afraid no, there is no way. I've managed to get a setup working using Spyder/Jupyter, but that's mostly for generating notebooks that are easy to read and that can provide an explanation of what's going on in a nice format. There's still some copy/paste going on to get the actual code into the robot through the LEGO Mindstorms app.

    Using co-routines, as proposed by David Lechner (actual code here). I tried this approach in Charlie's drum_solo activity and it works quite well.
