codebender is an online development and collaboration platform for all Arduino users, makers, and engineers out there. It makes it easy for anyone, no matter how novice they are, to program their favorite microcontroller.
codebender takes away all the frustration of setting up and maintaining your computer when developing applications for Arduino related hardware.
It offers an advanced editor with highlighting, autoformating, and autocompletion. It has an extensive repository of libraries that you can access directly from the editor, as well as a handy compiler with very descriptive output that will help you quickly debug your programs.
Your projects are stored on the cloud, so you can access them anytime, from anywhere, and share them with your friends and colleagues. You can even embed your code anywhere on the Internet… on your favorite forum, or your personal blog.
codebender supports an ever-growing collection of Arduino platforms. And now, one of those platforms is FLORA, Adafruit’s wearable electronics platform.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
