It looks like the author also made a tool to use EnergyTrace without needing to install CCS, might be worth a look:

Source code is super simple, since the MSP debug stack is doing all the work.

 

Just quickly compiled it on my PC, looks great! Just spits out a continuous stream of values, which you can pipe into a gnuplot etc.

 

Turns your launchpad into a current sensor for any (3.6v only) application.
