AVR-GCC, Binutils, AVR-LibC, & AVRDUDE in Single Package, for Windows or Linux #Arduino
Hat tip to Zak Kemble for providing this single-package download for Windows 32/64 and a bash script file for building from source for GCC, Binutils, and LibC.
This is for those of you who like all the latest shiny things; GCC 6.1.0 was released just a few days ago (at time of writing), along with Binutils 2.26, AVR-LibC 2.0.0 and AVRDUDE 6.3 which were released a few months ago.
The binaries are built from source on an Arch Linux virtual machine with MinGW, apart from AVRDUDE where the pre-built binary was obtained from the official download area. Both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows binaries are provided. There’s probably no benefit from using the 64 bit stuff, but all the cool kids are doing it so why not.
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.
