Raspberry Pi WebIDE Update to 0.3.0: Debug!

We have a new alpha release of the Rapsberry Pi WebIDE ready to go.  This version includes a major new feature that allows you to debug your python programs.  This is a real-time step debugger, with breakpoints, output, etc.

We also have a new feature on how to use the debugger on the Learning system.

The new changes for the 0.3.0 version of the WebIDE are as follows:

  • Python step debugger
  • Node.js update to 0.8 from 0.6 for faster navigation, and page loads.
  • Package node binaries with the WebIDE for faster, and easier installs
NOTE: To take advantage of the updated node binaries, and increased speed of the WebIDE, you’ll want to do an uninstall/installation, as the binaries are configured during the installation process, so updating within the editor won’t pick those changes up.

Here’s a screenshot of the debugger in action:

Upgrading from 0.2.0 and higher

You can upgrade from 0.2.0 and higher from within the editor.  If you’d like the increased speed using the new node binaries, you’ll want to uninstall/install again.

  1. Ensure that your code is safely saved in your repository at bitbucket.org.
  2. Login to the editor.
  3. Click Update in the upper right.
  4. Update should take about a minute.

Upgrading From 0.1.9 and lower

To install this new editor, you’ll want to completely remove your old editor, and run the installation script again.

  1. Ensure that your code is safely saved in your repository at bitbucket.org.
  2. Uninstall using the following script
    1. curl https://raw.github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-WebIDE/release/scripts/uninstall.sh | sh
  3. Either make sure there are no rogue node processes running, or restart your Pi.
  4. Install the new and improved WebIDE
  5. curl https://raw.github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-WebIDE/alpha/scripts/install.sh | sudo sh

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  1. I see upgrade instructions, but where would I find first installation instructions?
