In this post, I will show how to setup your development environment and started developing Flash projects that integrate with the Arduino electronic platform. For this tutorial, we will cover how to:
For this tutorial, we will cover how to:
Set up Arduino and make sure it is connected correctly.
Install and configure a proxy program so Flash can communicate with the Arduino.
Build a simple Flash application that blinks an LED on the Arduino.
Once we are finished with the tutorial, you will be all setup to begin working on real world Flash / Arduino projects.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
