ArduBlock is a Block Programming Language for Arduino. The language and functions model closely to Arduino Language Reference


The project is managed by Maven. After checking out the source for the first time, one should run the following to install Arduino's pde.jar into the local repository.

$ mvn validate


$ mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="com.ardublock.Main"


Change the /src/main/resources/com/ardublock/block/ardublock_def.xml to add new blocks to ArduBlock

$ mvn clean package

$ mvn compile exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="com.ardublock.Main"

The Visual Block environment should show up. Happy Hacking! ;)


Edit code of ardublock

$ mvn clean package

copy the target/ardublock-all.jar to Arduino\tools\ArduBlockTool\tool
