    I did this in conjunction with https://github.com/dokterdok/Continuity-­Activation-Tool/

    To force your system to use an external Bluetooth controller instead of the internal one, open Terminal and type:

    sudo nvram bluetoothHostControllerSwitchBehavior=al­ways
    then reboot. To revert to the default OS X behavior, type:

    sudo nvram -d bluetoothHostControllerSwitchBehavior

    You may need to turn off (or un-pair) Bluetooth accessories that are currently using your internal Bluetooth controller, as they can prevent the dongle from being detected by the Continuity Activation Tool.

    The end bit was key. turning off the bluetooth devices and then bluetooth, then firing it back up finally did it for me.

    yeh, that's right. It could appear in the connect menu 'simulator' or something similar.

    Wow, could really do with this if so students could use it to test ideas before using our real espruino robots!

    I've had to buy a dongle for my mac. Getting it to work is another thing, 'continuity tool' did all the command line stuff needed to switch my mac over from the internal BT chip to the dongle. Asus BT400 works a treat.
