Hi, I’ve been wanting to continue upgrading my Arduino IDE while maintaining support for all the wonderful Adafruit boards I have (Pro Trinket, Trinket, and Flora). It was a pain to figure out how to get them all working in the latest version and then to re-trace those steps when a new version came out. So, I forked the project and baked support directly into the source. Now an upgrade is as simple as merging master and re-building.
Only tested against Mac OS X Yosemite (not Windows or Linux).
Haven’t tested the Gemma or Pro Trinket 3v.
It’s only tracking the java7 branch.
No nightly build process.
I’d love help testing it for other OS’s and boards.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
