Arduino 1.0.5 / 1.5.7 Beta

A rich and powerful Integrated Development Editor that allows you to write code and upload it to an Arduino board for testing purposes
Arduino is a cross-platform IDE that works in conjunction with an Arduino controller in order to write, compile and upload code to the board.

The software provides support for a wide array of Arduino boards, including Arduino Uno, Nano, Mega, Esplora, Ethernet, Fio, Pro or Pro Mini, as well as LilyPad Arduino.

The universal languages for Arduino are C and C++, thus the software is fit for professionals who are familiar with these two. Features such as syntax highlighting, automatic indentation and brace matching makes it a modern alternative to other IDEs.

Wrapped inside a streamlined interface, the software features both the looks and the functionality that appeal to Arduino developers, paving the way to a successful output via the debugging modules.

All of its features are hosted inside a few buttons and menus that are easy to navigate and understand, especially for professional programmers. Also, the built-in collection of examples might be of great help for Arduino first timers.

Provided that you’ve connected the Arduino board to the computer and installed all the necessary drivers, one of the first steps we see fit is to choose the model you’ll be working with using the Tools menu of the application.

Then, you can start writing the programs using the comfortable environment that Arduino offers. The program includes a rich array of built-in libraries such as EEPROM, Firmata, GSM, Servo, TFT, WiFI, etc, but adding your own is also possible.

Designs can be verified and compiled, with an error log displayed in the lower part of the UI that allows you to review the code. If the debugging process returns no errors, you can start the upload process and have your program delivered to the board so you can proceed with further testing.

All in all, Arduino comes across as an extremely useful asset, providing the essentials that Arduino developers need in order to streamline the testing process.
