Anyone ever write a grbl sender for arduino?

I have a really simple program I’m running repetitively that sends the same 25 lines of gcode and then two that vary with each invocation. I’m using universal gcode sender on a raspberry pi. that is like two orders of magnitude more computing power than the application needs.
I wrote a python gcode sender that parses a file and with each line, sends it and waits for an ‘ok’ return.
But I’d rather just write it in C and run it on an arduino micro that takes like 1/20th the space, power, and cost of the raspi.

Has anyone else already done this?

What about an ESP32 since you can probably just run your python on it, and it costs less than the arduino?

Huh, good point. Guess I finally have to get one of those ESP modules working…
