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.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
