Feature suggestion (ESPHome): Printer component for serial POS printers

I’d like to suggest a component which can print on serial POS printers such as those sold by Adafruit. In principal, one can simply write to the serial port and the printer will print on <cr><lf> but those printers have additional functions, such as different fonts, barcodes, etc. There are Open Source Arduino and Python libraries available from Adafruit.


I also would love to see this happening. With for example QR204 thermal printer.

1024 open feature requests but none mentions a printer :printer:

Maybe one of you can add it the feature tracker :point_up:
