Hello everyone!

Welcome and thank you for signing up to try the Arduino Web Editor!
We are excited to get started creating and testing this new platform with you. The Arduino Web Editor is a fully functional online version of the Arduino Software (IDE), you can start using right away for your projects.

The general goals of the program are:
  • Test thoroughly  the Arduino Web Editor. It would be great if you could use it to work on your projects as you do with the desktop IDE.
  • Track issues and bugs (before opening a new issue, have a look at the Known Issues page, just in case someone already noticed it). We are also looking for feedback on the GUI and on the user experience of the whole platform.
  • Collect feedback on what you would like to see happening on the Arduino Web Editor, feel free to add your thoughts on the Wish-list page.

How to get started:
Please check out this tutorial that will walk you through all the main features.

Let us know if you have any questions, please consider that many features are still in development.
Thanks for joining again,
Arduino Create Team

Unsure about the best way to provide feedback, so I am responding here but feel free to move this to another thread.

Basic feedback: it just worked!

Tested on Mavericks with Arduino Pro Micro, installed PID library (was not included) and worked ok with my closed-loop PID code.

Serial monitor is the feature that though worked felt odd within the main window.

I have use the environment for an hour only, I will report more once I test it on other platforms and boards.

First impression is that I like it.

Minor trouble: a couple of code uploads failed, but worked on a second attempt, no big deal.

Ok, Ubuntu 14.04 experience was not so smooth. For reasons unknown first attempt of the plugin seemed only half working. Debug console shown responses from SPJS but the Web editor reported it could not find plug-in.

One manual restart of Chrome did not fix the problem. Plug-in icon on the top bar was blue and menu worked.

Second attempt of installing the plug-in seemed to complain less and it worked ok afterwards.

Now it is all working nice but there is a warning message every few seconds on the terminal I used for installing the plugin:
[ERR] bonjour: Failed to bind to udp6 port: listen udp6 :5353: bind: address already in use
[ERR] bonjour: Failed to bind to udp6 port: listen udp6 :5353: bind: address already in use
[ERR] bonjour: Failed to bind to udp6 port: listen udp6 :5353: bind: address already in use

I can see that my system configuration uses that port for other app (see netstat output line):
udp6       0      0 :::5353                 :::*                                902/avahi-daemon:

Yea, this is the best way for programming Arduino without download an external IDE =D
Thanks for accepted me on this beta testing community
I Love Arduino and Open Source Community

Has anyone tested Arduino Create with a Chromebook?

Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael, we have in our road map the Chromebook support, not available yet thou!

Chromebook support for Arduino Create would be amazing for the educational space. Any idea when that will be available?

It is on our roadmap, unfortunately it is not so straight forward as in may look.
But we are collaborating with Google on the WebUSB API project that may help speed up everything. Here more infos on it https://wicg.github.io/webusb/

We keep you posted and thank you for your feedback!

Hi Friends,
I'm Pratheepkumar, I'm a new user on arduino web editor ,for what this web editor was created ,please any say?

@ Impratheepraina

Its an IDE you can access almost anywhere and its ONLINE as compared to fully installed.
It also gives you better access to Arduino CLOUD.

Useful if you are away from home without your regular computer.
They say they will also make it available for Android.

Lots of uses above and beyond the regular IDE but not an actual replacement for the real IDE (YET)
It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

On Linux, the web editor can not open the USB ports due to privilege access issues. Aside from running as administrator or changing the ownership of the ports,  is there any other easy fix for this issue? If so can it be built into the application?

Hi @dbkaynor

this is probably due to the udev group. Please be sure you have the following rules on /etc/rules.d/61-openocd.rules file

Code: [Select]
ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="openocd_rules_end"
SUBSYSTEM!="usb|tty|hidraw", GOTO="openocd_rules_end"
# CMSIS-DAP compatible adapters
ATTRS{product}=="*CMSIS-DAP*", MODE="664", GROUP="plugdev"
LABEL="openocd_rules_end"


This is needed on the boards using openocd as uploader.

Please be sure your user is part of the plugdev group and then reboot the machine.

I am new to web editor, I sued the PC IDE version with no problem for over a year, my question is if the web arduino supports other boards like ESP8266, I can not find a way to add those as I did to the IDE version.

@ conrra

No ESP's yet.
Its on quite a few of people's wish list though, mine included !

Sincerly, the web editor is nice and good looking, I have just tried it for curiosity. Maybe because I am a developer, I don't think it is the best way for working with Arduino. Yes, for sharing small sketches it could be nice, but a desktop environment is still better than a web editor. There are already code editors very advanced and extensible out there.  They are cross platform and there are already extensions for compiling and uploading directly from within the editor. Why don't you create and support official extensions for Atom and Visual Studio Code?

Just my personal thoughts, Cheers!
