KB-IDE Open Source IDE Supports ESP-IDF, Arduino, and Visual Programming for #ESP32 Boards @ESP32net @cnxsoft

Via CNX Software blog comes news of KB IDE, a development environment for ESP32 boards. You can code in block or text programming with a colorful, intuitive IDE. The code in either mode is C/C++ so programs should be very speedy.

Block programming

Easy coding for beginners.
  • 100% no hardcoding, just drag & drop with block connection.
  • Easy and Intuitive.
  • Basic & Advance block coverage 99% of the code that you write.
  • Various helping blocks, Images, Music, Text-to-speech.
  • Have fun in exploring with your creativity.
  • Speed up text-coding, all blocks are 100% convertible ready-compile C/C++.

Text Programming

Themed editor for programmers.
  • Speed up coding by converting C/C++ from block.
  • Line error hint, indicate and report lines with error.
  • 50+ editor themes, dark/light, select your personal preference.
  • Fast switch block & code mode.
  • External package, add a more powerful tool.

The board manager makes selecting the target board easy with clear pictures.

The MIT licensed code is on GitHub and you can find ready-made executables for Windows/mac/Linux in the releases page here.

  • The IDE is made with Vuejs combined with various tools, such as VuetifyVue Material AdminWebpackElectronBlocklyCodeMirrorKidbright-IDE and more. Basically, this IDE is 100% Open Source, you can browse sources and find more modules that we use in our GITHUB KBIDE.
  • This is a Hackable IDE, you can integrate by using Package, add Board, Plugin and many other ways. We provide a powerful and ready documented template.

See the project home page for more as well as their Facebook group.


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

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.
