Just get the Linux version of the arduino IDE and run it on the Pi, there is no need for anything to be developed.
The CPU meter in the corner of the Debian screen is frequently maxed out for even the most conservative of applications, such as multitabbed web browsing. CPU-intensive applications are almost off limits: the GIMP art package took 1min 27secs just to load. In the SysBench CPU benchmark, the Model B took 107ms to complete one calculation of the purely synthetic prime number test; a mid-range desktop Core 2 Duo E8400 took only 0.85ms.
The sad truth is modern software development trades inefficient runtime for ease-of-programming. That trend has been with us for 20+ years as desktop computers have increased in performance. I really don't think the Raspberry Pi is going to reverse that trend.
Indeed, so sad, but true. ( 20+ years is exaggerated IMHO)
That was 1992, exactly 20 years ago!
