Arduino IDE

Last Updated on March 16, 2024

Arduino Opensource platform needs IDE (Integrated Development Environment) software application to compile and upload arduino sketches to the arduino board.

The Beginning

The Arduino IDE is a cross-platform application that is written in Java programming language. This is originated from processing opensource IDE. This processing IDE used for to code interactive programs with 2D, 3D or PDF output, this is compatible with GNU linux, MAC OS X, and Windows.

Transformation to Arduino IDE

By the necessary modification processing becomes arduino IDE, it supports C and C++ programming languages using special codes.

It comes with many library to support different arduino boards and hardware, we can insert any library compatible to the Arduino, AVR microcontrollers and manipulate hardwares, every arduino and compatible boards comes with special bootloader to support flash file from Arduino IDE.

Updated Arduino IDE 

Arduino 1.6.8 download

This version has added support for GUI interface scaling for UHD monitors, Arduino IDE 1.6.8 comes with libraries to support for Arduino / Genuino 101, TFT, Ethernet, SD. Check release notes here.

Different Approach to Arduino IDE

Programino is the integrated development environment for Arduino & Genuino. It is an comfortable easy to use alternative IDE for arduino and compatible microcontroller boards.

The programino has additional features to support following languages

Arduino file (*.ino)

Header file (*.h)

C file (*.C)

C++ file (*.Cpp)

HTML file (*.html)

HTM file (*.htm)

Java script file (*.js)

CSS file (*.css)

text file (*.txt)

Notable Features of Programino

  1. Custom Syntax-Highlighting and Syntax-Style
  2. Code Autocompletion, Snippets and Information “hints”
  3. Code Folding
  4. Find & Replace
  5. Simple IDE and Editor Configuration
  6. Project Explorer
  7. Object Explorer
  8. Hex-File Extraction for Production
  9. Hardware Viewer
  10. 2x UART-Terminals
  11. Value Converter
  12. Dot-Matrix LCD-Designer
  13. RGB-LED Color Selector
  14. Serial Analog Plotter
  15. Export Function to Arduino IDE
  16. Use all Arduino libraries
  17. HTML5 Web-Editor for IoT with Arduino/Genuino

Have a try this programino IDE for your next arduino project.
