ArdublocklyServer Python package initialises a local server to be able to compile and load the Arduino code using the Arduino IDE.
This is all packaged in a self contained executable desktop application for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
- Generates Arduino code with visual drag-and-drop blocks
- Uploads the code to an Arduino Board
- Useful "code block warnings"
- Compatible with a wide range of official Arduino Boards
- Works on Windows / Linux / Mac OS X
Ardublockly is still under development and a few features are not yet implemented. A to-do list can be found in the TODO.md file.
Currently tested under Windows with Python 2.7 and 3.4 and in Linux and MacOS X with Python 2.7.
Cloning the repository
Please note that there are submodules in the repository that need initialisation. So, to correctly clone the Ardublockly repository:
git clone https://github.com/carlosperate/ardublockly.git cd ardublockly git submodule update --init --recursive
The desktop application is available for Windows/Mac/Linux and runs as a stand-alone executable that can be downloaded from the Ardublockly repository releases page.
You will also need the Arduino IDE version 1.6.x or higher.
You can also test UNSTABLE development builds automatically generated every time an update is added to the GitHub repository:
|Linux build||Windows build||Mac OS X build|
|Download Link||Download Link||Download Link|
"Core version" (Python server only)
If you prefer, the core software can be used by running only the Python server, which loads the web interface on your local browser (Chrome recommended).
Full installation instructions for this version can be found in this Github repository Wiki.
The quick version: Clone this repository, initialise all submodules, and execute:
This will work on Windows, Linux (including ARM) and Mac OS X, with Python >2.7 or >3.4
- Install Ardublockly.
- Install the Arduino IDE version 1.6.x or higher (latest version is always recommended).
- Run Ardublockly as defined in your installation method.
- Configure Ardublockly to locate the Arduino IDE following these instructions.
A demo of the latest release of Ardublockly main interface can be found in the following two links (to load the code into an Arduino it requires the full Ardublockly application to be downloaded and run on your computer):
The documentation, including installation instructions, configuration instructions, and developer information can be found in the Ardublockly GitHub repository Wiki.
To download the documentation you can git clone the wiki data:
