Title: how can i run arduino IDE on android?
Post by: zhirantaha on Feb 20, 2013, 05:36 pm
hello
i want to upload code directly from android to arduino?
can they talk to each other
i saw some post that talked about running Arduino IDE in android by linux version
thanks for replay
best regards

In order to have a snowball's chance at doing this, you'd probably need to have the device rooted.

Furthermore, the Java that is on Android devices is -not- a standard Java; right now Google (Android) and Oracle (owners of Sun Microsystems and Java) are waging court battles on this very issue (ie, non-standard Java).

Basically - if you wanted to really do this - you would need a deep understanding of both the Arduino system, IDE, etc (the Java guts, mainly) - as well as how to develop for Android devices using the Android SDK - then you would need to port the Arduino system over. Of course, you would also need to get a compatible version of the avr-gcc compiler working on the version of Linux on the device as well. Then package the whole thing up into an ADK, sign it, and install it.

Not a simple process - especially if you are asking this kind of question, which indicates you may not have the experience needed to even start...

For what it's worth (probably not a lot!) I abandoned any bright ideas of "I want to put the Arduino IDE on my tablet!" pretty quickly because of all the reasons detailed above.

I can't see coding on a touchscreen being much fun anyway.

There is a website that will allow you to do Arduino compiles in your browser.  You can probably use that from your Android device.

The Arduino IDE runs on my Raspberry Pi, albeit slowly. I have a full gcc AVR toolchain installed as well as a copy of avrdude. So, we know it's possible to install the Arduino IDE on ARM processors. You might have more luck with a starting point if you explore how it was ported to the RPi.

Not sure about running Arduino IDE on android, but you can upload sketch right from your android device:
