There are two ways to jump in:

1) (the best way) Get a client such as XChat, irssi (terminal only), or mIRC, then connect to, then /join #arduino

2) (the easy way) Use this link to connect via freenode's online gateway

For reference: IRC does not require a sign up, though, you may wish to do so to keep sole ownership on your nick, otherwise it's a case of first-come-first-served. You can do this by logging in as normal, then "/msg NickServ help register". Also, "/join #freenode" for network help.

Channels are not recorded by freenode, it is up to the channels to decide whether they are logged or not. There is no official logging on #arduino, however, many people (myself included) keep personal logs for our own reference. There may also be bots equivalent to a google crawler which join channels, note the topic-text, and log discussion for archives and search engines.

If there already is a well functioning chat channel, then there is no need for another one to be created here.

Rather the opposite: many of us on have been pushing for the integration of the channel with the rest of the arduino community, and to become "official". You can read more here: (an open letter written by the channel, and in the topic). Unfortunately, we've yet to have a definitive response.

For everyone:

I know that some people on the forum, such as yotson, have brought up this topic before.

The channel itself is rather friendly, and we are fairly relaxed about topic, and as a result, we are also able to answer on a wide range of topics, as there is always someone we know who has experience or an interest in that field. Also, because of the immediate nature, we can often solve issues in a matter of seconds. (For example, I've just helped mirror the IDE for someone who couldn't reach the main release through the site).

Long story short - come visit us, and if you like us, please stay and support us!

Yeah, it's SVN based, no others are affected. But I'm happy to put this down to quirks mode. This affects two sketches (one of which has been reproduced on another pc), but other sketches are unaffected.

Hey everyone.

Arduino IDE throws an error when opening a file that's being tracked by SVN.
It throws:

An error occurred while starting the application.

This is happening on a simple .pde file that works outside SVN.


Windows 7 32-bit
IDE 0022
TortoiseSVN 1.1.12
(which is built on SVN 1.6.15)

Thanks for any help you can give!
