Minibloq is a graphical programming environment for Arduino™, Multiplo, physical computing devices and robots. One of it’s main goals is to bring closer physical computing and robotic platforms to primary schools, kids and beginners. If you want to see a short intro, you can take a look to the video used for the Kickstarter campaign.
- Easy: Just a few clicks and your first program is running.
- Real-time code generator: It creates the code while you are adding blocks or modifying param values, showing the code in a syntax colored window. This way, Minibloq facilitates the transition to text-based programming.
- Real time error checking.
- Basic drag& drop with autopan.
- Advanced interface: Zoom, cut and paste, dockable windows, and keyboard navigation are just some of the Minibloq GUI’s features. And there is more…
- Embedded terminal: There is an embedded terminal that lets you send and receive data to your board through serial/USB ports.
- All-in-one-ready-to-use-solution: This is “batteries included software”. The package includes everything to start working.
- Portable: It does not requires installation (except for the drivers required for specific boards, like Arduino™). It can run from a pen drive too. Oh, and it runs completely off-line, all in your own computer. More: You can have parallel copies of Minibloq, even with different settings running in the same computer.
- Fast: I’ts a native application, compiled with C++ (gcc), using wxWidgets. For this reason, Minibloq is suitable for low end computers and netbooks. And, it also includes precompiled cores, it builds and downloads your programs really fast. Try it!
- Modular and expandable: The user can easily create it’s own new blocks.
- Great news from Arduino! Once again, Arduino will donate 30,000 USD to promote open source culture and innovation. This year, Arduino is soliciting suggestions; throughout 2014, Arduino is asking the community to highlight the 10 organizations which would best benefit from Arduino support. Arduino is based on the contribution of…
- WHAT IS ARDUINO? Technically Arduino is: is an open-source single-board microcontroller, descendant of the open-source Wiring platform, designed to make the process of using electronics in multidisciplinary projects more accessible. The hardware consists of a simple open hardware design for the Arduino board…
- The main goal of this blog, is to give a help for beginners on the AVR programming, and bringing new ideas of the capabilities of this boards. Here you have all the posts in the category Tutorials, which i hope are usefull for the #arduino community. [catlist id=1 numberposts=-1 date=yes]…
