Title: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: 00alis on Nov 23, 2015, 06:07 pm
Is there a feature that you are terribly missing on the Arduino Create Platform? Or do you have an idea you would like to share with us?

Please let us know by posting you feedback in this thread!

COMING UP:
* Reference tab
* Private sketches
* Adjust the compiler flags before compiling and uploading the program

Wish List:
* Add roadmap + ways to up-vote/down-vote a feature
* Autoformat as in the Desktop IDE (auto indent)
* Support for 3rd party boards (specifically ATTiny and ESP, Sparkfun Digital Sandbox, Adafruit Feather, Microduino)
* Installation of Plugin for multiple users
* Sketch version control, and a way to retrive deleted sketches and files
* Github/Dropbox integration
* Keep local and online Sketchbook in sync as an option
* Support Yun Shield
* Blind-friendly, fix compatibility with screen readers
* Multi-language support
* Serial Plotter
* Arduino as ISP, burn bootloader
* Debugger
* Language support
* Move the "Serial Monitor" view (pop out window)
* Drag and Drop on Sketchbook panel

* Schematics editor
* Add bootloader
* Turn off metadata (set default board as in the Java IDE)
* Autocomplete
* Include Library when exporting/saving a sketch
* Live collaboration feature (as Gdocs)
* Student & teacher collaboration: accounts linked, the teacher could setup a class assignment, and students could have a "Submit to Teacher" button built into the editor page. Teachers would be able to see an "assignment" page with a listing of all of the names of the students with the appropriate links to the code from that project, multiple install of the agent on classroom PCs
* Scratch or blockly-like coding environment
* Integrate Processing
* Edit Libraries on the Web Editor
* Share custom library
* Phone app

I'd love the ability to share entire groups of programs+other tabs with other users or via a publicly accessible link. I'm sure you're thinking of this, but the richer environment (adding pictures, instructions, explanations) begs to be used for teaching.

I would love to see board manager make it's way in. Especially the ability to use this with the esp8266.

is it really necesaary to have a board connected to verify my code what if i am metro and i had this astaunishing solution for a problem  and i wanted to check it do i need to have always my boards with me i dont know i am just saying
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: 00alis on Dec 07, 2015, 11:05 am
It is not necessary to have a board to Verify your code, if you have already Uploaded your code onto a board a metadata will be saved. Just pressed the Verify button (the one with the checkmark).

If you are starting from scratch you can still Verify your code w/o a board by going into Select Other Board and select the board you will like the sketch to run onto.

ESP8266 module could be sellected alone. i could not find any board option about esp8266  :smiley-confuse:
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: mastrolinux on Dec 09, 2015, 12:55 pm
The library manager is still under development so esp8266 cannot be used right now. But we are working on it.

@MetalBird we are indeed already experimenting a bit with sharing features. It is in progress but takes a while. That is one of the reason why Arduino Create is born, share knowledge with others.
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: MetalBird on Dec 09, 2015, 04:27 pm
@mastrolinux that's great to hear! I think the more types of media you can share along with the program, the better the experience will be. Addition of pictures in the tabs is already great.

Are you trying to create a 'public share' where anyone can find/ link to the sketch or are you considering a 'private share' where the sketch is sent to a specific username?
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: 00alis on Dec 10, 2015, 12:28 pm
@MetalBird we are considering both private and public shares :)

I would like to see the ability to upload your whole sketchbook easily into the cloud added and selecting code made easier

Post by: mastrolinux on Dec 21, 2015, 04:10 pm
Hi @bonalybob, what do you mean with "select code made easier"?

We have a dev api to import a sketch so using it recursively to import the whole sketchbook should not be a big deal.
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: bonalybob on Dec 21, 2015, 05:13 pm
"select code made easier" means when editing code it is sometimes hard to select code to copy or delete as the selector will also select random other bits of code

Title: "mass storage" integration like bootloader "Adafruit Playground"
Post by: chatelao on Feb 04, 2016, 04:32 pm
It would be great to have an "installation free" version using an USB-Mass-Storage device like with "mbed" over the bootloader Adafruit uses on the "Adafruit Playground".

@Osqui we do not know yet if we are going to open Arduino Create or not. More news in few months.
@jadonmiller this is actually something we can implement relatively quickly.

Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: mastrolinux on Feb 05, 2016, 09:44 am
@chatelao I am not even sure if an installation free version is possible, the application is very complex and involves a lot of components:

Node.js (will be moved to Golang)
RetrhinkDB
Arduino Builder Bots (a scalable way to compile Arduino Code)
The frontend in js with Angular.js
The Arduino Create Agent which runs on the client PC
An object storage (now running on Amazon S3)

I think it would be nice to also simulate the Arduino electronic, online.
For example, 123d.circuits.io :-)

Would it be possible (or is it already and I missed it) to upload multiple tabs for a project at once.  I seem to only be able to upload one tab at a time.

Single tabs are working fine, but most of my larger sketches are multiple (6+) tabs for clarity.

I would also recommend to add a keyboard functions: SHIFT and CTRL. In this way I can select multiple files at once (to move, to delete ecc.). :-)

@Terciops when you open a sketch all the files included in the folders are opened as tabs, let us know it this does not happen!

Hello, I would like to suggest in "Preferences" option. Can you put the "Default Board" option? That way, when I create a sketch, the board is automatically set to "Arduino Uno" in the IDE. This really helps the lazy. :D :D
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: interaktiv on Feb 18, 2016, 03:01 pm
I would like to use the MKR1000 library (and also +1 on the ESP8266 board).

However to try out Arduino Create I can simply make sketches and use the local IDE with correct board manager. No problems.

I wish a "Local IDE" option in the Create board manager that I could select as "user defined board".
- The Create Agent would only have to start the local IDE with a command-line option.
-- Starting IDE with user command that could be set in web board manager, or in the Create Agent.
-- Default to latest used board manager if no options set and load graphical IDE to select board.
- Sync or store current sketch in local temporary sketch folder for the IDE to use.

I think this would make it easier for more users with specialized boards to get started with Create.

Hi!
First, I wanna say that I love this idea, a web-based IDE is an amazing development and I really love the design, it is so clean, congrats!

However, I have a few things to say about it:

1. Language support (I know it's a beta version yet).
2. You probably know the 123d.circuit.io page and I know that it's a huge project, but It will be nice to see the posibility to simulate the code or something similar.
3. The posibility to move the "Serial Monitor" view. For example, in another window (there are many people with two or more monitors) or in the same place that the "Verbose output" (in two tabs).
4. A button to copy the output of "Serial Monitor".
5. The posibility to make our own layout and schematic image in the IDE (or maybe import from Fritzing)
6. The posibility to install the Arduino bootloader in another atmega328p or another chip

I'm done... for now :P
Hope you found this things really usable.

Bye!

I recommend making the initial import of sketches and libraries easier into Create easier and more intuitive. Have a way to bulk import sketches and libraries as they exist in a classic Arduino IDE environment. What's are the zip files all about?
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: MRMAINT62 on Feb 21, 2016, 03:33 am
I find the library system challenging. I was wondering if anyone else would agree with me that it would be easier to have the libraries that you create yourself in the same directory as the file is in and have the includes check there first.

If this were the case, then when there is a duplicate name for a library, it would use yours by default and all the libraries that are written special for the program are packaged with it in the same directory. When you upload it to a website, or store it as a backup, it will still work, because the libraries will not have been updated and changed or have been removed. You won't also have to go collect them to be able to share your code with others.

Maybe add another save option that includes the used libraries in the saved file folder! Or maybe even just save the parts of the libraries that are referenced in the code in a single library reference file.

I am wanting to use the Encoder examples with my MKR1000 board. The file Encoder\pins.h does not have interrupt listings for my board (I know, it's not released yet!) and I do not know what the processor description information is that the pins.h uses to identify which board it is running on. Does anyone know where I can track this information down at?
"__SAMD25__" <- I tried this and it did not work?
Is pins.h looking for the processor pin numbers or the board bin numbers?

Another question: Am I doing this forum posting correctly by using this like a blog?
Are there defined rules to how this is supposed to be used?
If so, how do I find those rules?

Hi all!
I have been updating the first post in this thread with our schedule, so you can have a better sense on when things are going to happen.

@spyguy518 what do you mean with password protected? everything is in HTTPS and you have to log in your Arduino account to access the Editor

@MRMAINT62 I agree with you on the Library behavior, we have been discussing similar solutions internally. It is a big structural change so it won't happen in the next few months, but we have it in mind.

I wish ability to use local values that will not be saved, only used i local compilation of code. Specifically when setting password such as in Wi-Fi sketches where User, Password, IP, DNS and MAC should never be stored publicly.

One way could be to have a protected "credentials" page in your Arduino profile where values can be changed and stored and never by mistake be uploaded or stored in public code. Another suggestion is ability to add a tab "locked.h" for temporary storage of sensitive values and have that tab server-side encrypted salted with user Arduino Create credentials.

Values from a "credentials" entry or "locked.h" file could be linked in sketch with a reference like "//securevalue:p14" when stored and replaced with secure value reference p14 (Password number 14) during compile.

I'd like to debug with the Arduino Zero board. Basic debugging, as breakpoints and variable monitoring, would be great.

The debugging feature on the Zero board is a real step forward compared to previous generation of Arduino boards.

Once the online backend is stabilised, do you plan to release a version to run on an Arduino board with Linux, e.g. Yún or Edison? Intenet ins't available everywhere...

Thank you!

My things I really want:
-Support for screens smaller than 1024px (e.g. 1280x720)
-A phone app or support for a mobile site. (App is preferrable.)
-Assuming said app, USB OTG support so the Arduino can be programmed via being hooked up to the phone.
-A chromebook plugin. Unless that already exists.
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: Digitalis on Feb 27, 2016, 08:00 pm
Just realized chromebook plugin is already on the radar. Oh well. Another thing I'd suggest is allowing for the hidden functions like setup and loop to stay hidden permanently, rather than re-expanding each time I open the program.

  :) Move the "Serial Monitor" view (pop out window)

I want to upload sketch through internet from outside. it's very difficult to carry hardware outside . few some time its very complicated. so I can connect my hardware with internet connection through lab dextop , open arduino create with my ID. then i can configure - update from outside ,through internet & my laptop. still now i don't have live experiment but i belie that i can do this with arduino create.

And one another think we can

i want to make a different type graph with serial monitor value. with a single click . type of option must be there.

I'm a french STEM teacher and instructor for teacher, for kids from 9 to 19, my software (Blockly@rduino (http://technologiescollege.github.io/Blockly-at-rduino/)) is very popular in France & Quebec too (they are just discovering Arduino for Education !

Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: ConiferApps on Apr 04, 2016, 02:38 pm
Everything is working, although there are a few things that I'd recommend. As a lot of people have mentioned, I need a board manager to make Arduino Create truly useful, as I spend more time developing for 3rd party boards like the Adafruit ones and barebones Atmel boards like the Attiny than I do developing for Arduino/Genuino boards.

2nd point - it would be literally awesome if you could include some kind of 123d circuits integration. 123d circuits has an "electronics lab" where you can actually simulate a variety of boards like the Uno, Nano, and ESP8266 with a virtual breadboard, and virtually upload code to these virtual boards. 123d circuits also allows you to develop schematics. So, I think that it'd be awesome if there was some kind of import function that could take the code already in 123d circuits, convert it to a sketch, and take the schematic and put that in there too.

Anyways, those are just some ideas.

And what we need :
  • integrate your plugin in web browser : when PC are totally 'frozen', with a portable browser and a plugin in it we can work without installing anything....
  • use plugin to upload to IDE Arduino installed on computer if someone prefer use it
  • integrate your editor like a plugin in a web page, that's what I did with Codebender


And as said : Fritzing + simulator !!!

Thanks a lot for your work !
Whilst it isn't EXACTLY what you asked for, I'd reccomend looking at 123D circuits. It lets people build circuits using a virtual breadboard in their web browser and has support for the ATTiny85, Arduino Micro, and Arduino Uno.

Hi all!

I have some project where I need to use a protoboard to minimize the space I need, and I'd like to burn the bootloader on an atmega328p. I know the ArduinoISP sketch is in the example tab but, i wish i had a online tool to burn it.
It'll be nice to completely remove the use of the desktop app.

By the way, I use the minimal hardware configuration for my microcontroler (No clock) So being able to upload a sketch with the editor would be awesome! Like adding a new board.

This is what the compiler say when I try to follow the step on this thread:
http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard

"avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
 avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0xf3"

OS : Win10, Browser : Chrome, Board used in editor : Arduino Uno

Why do you not support iPads (or tablet from other brands) with the editor.
Currently it stops while loading with the hint of not supporting resolutions less than 1024px!
Strange when using an iPad Air 2.
Would be nice using editor while mobile and using a lightning2usb jack for connecting to board when at home.

Sounds promising! But what does it mean "you can use with screens less than 1024px". An iPad has a resolution of way more than 1024px.

And will you support or add a plug-in (app) for the iPad so that I can connect my board to it by using an usb converter jack?

How about directly supporting Dropbox or Git for importing existing sketches or for versioning the code?

I could think of a scenario where one locates the whole project as a zip-file on Dropbox or Git and could import it to the create web editor environment.
That would ease the jump start.

First thing I noticed was the default addition of the ReadMe.adoc tab on new sketches. I like the idea of standard documentation.

This is probably low on the list of things to work on, but the AsciiDoc markup was not working yet.

I don't know if everyone would like this, but I might be more likely to use it if there were a script for autopopulating the ReadMe file with my info and maybe some of the info it could grab like the files included, board used etc.

I would love to see an Arduino 'server' that would allow you to upload over the network. Support for this could be added to the board manager allowing full use on tablets that don't support a plug-in agent.  Lots of other uses for a standard TCP protocol. Maybe this already exists and is just not integrated into the board manager?

I wish that the editor will allow/recognize urls in source comments so that can directly click on them to navigate to that url.
I use this for additional documentation or links to other sources like lib github sites.

BTW: the Arduino IDE does that already.

Hello,

IMHO the feedback of the editor after it finishes verifying code or uploading to the board is rather less visible.
In the client app, people have the progress bar and the output panel that clearly display the result of the process.

Verbose (and not) output panel doesn't clearly show the finish of the process.

In case of error people have a red bar displaying the error message. All fine. Well done.
But, what about doing the same in green (green bar) in case of success?

I wish it could be displayed some green check or some green evident text that clearly shows the success ending of the process.

Thanks a lot and keep up with the great work.

@interpeo
The output console is collapsed by default, but you can have it as in the Desktop IDE by selecting the option 'Always show output panel'. We can try adding the Success message on a green background and see how it feels like. Thank you so much for your feedback!

The libs are always the most updated version, compatibile with the most updated core installed. We are working on the Library Manager similar to the Desktop IDE and you will be able to select a version from there.

An "EXIT" option on the client side pc software would be nice so I don't have to start task manager if I want to shut down the client for anything.

Also maybe a slight colour change for the client side toolbar icon as here its like a faint blob on the toolbar.
And no its not a custom toolbar colour either. its windows stock.

The agent only has 4 options

Go to Arduino Create
Open Debug Console
Agent version (greyed out)
Pause plugin.

There should be a fifth one to EXIT the agent.

And maybe one to adjust settings eg. "Start with windows (tick box)"
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: Arduino_Genuino on Jun 17, 2016, 03:48 pm
@Ballscrewbob oh now I get it! Yes instead of Pause we had kill but then people told us they had a hard time finding the plugin again on their machines. So Pause turns it grey but actually EXIT it.

When the icon is grey the options are:
- Open
- Kill

Kill just remove the icon from the bar :)
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: ballscrewbob on Jun 17, 2016, 04:12 pm
Thanks hadn't noticed the two stage kill duhh

Odd way but it works LOL


UPDATE... I see what you mean about not being able to find a start option after you kill the agent.

Its not a long process to create a shortcut, see below which worked for me.

Create shortcut to IDE agent.

Most taskbar programs make a shortcut in the programs list however here on Win7 X64 it didn't
I wanted to be able to shut it down and open it as I wanted.
Here is what I did.

1. Locate IDE Agent. usually in C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\ArduinoCreateAgent (unless you have split install of windows)

2. Right click and select Copy.

3. Return to dektop.

4. Right click and select Paste Shortcut.

Now change the ICON

1. Right click your new Arduino Agent shortcut and select Properties

2. Make sure you are on the Shortcut tab and select Change Icon.

3. If you get a pop up box click OK

4. You can either choose a default icon from the selection or click the Browse

   If you want the proper Icon click Browse.

5. Browse to the path at the top (it may already select the correct path)

6. Select the tray_iconWin then click OK

7. Click OK again

8. You should be back on the properties page for the shortcut again and now just click Apply then OK.


Whilst this is for Win 7 the process should be similar for some other versions of windows.

Yep sort of

I can COPY from the web IDE CTRL C and paste CTRL V into things CTRL X mostly works but I don't seem able to always CUT.

The cut is sometimes hit and miss but mostly it works.

I miss the mouse only CUT, COPY, PASTE commands per se on the right click drop down menu. So its more a "wish list" item.

Offline Modus !!!

Online is rubish. Installation and configuraiton for unexperienced users is also rubish,
I don't see any benefits from using cloud service to compile simple stuff for
micro controllers.

So repeat: Offline is the the better cloud.

BTW: I didn't work for non-admin users on my Win 8.1!
        And what's about Linux?
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: ballscrewbob on Jul 07, 2016, 02:56 pm
@ f41_ardu

I think its still too early in development to actually call it rubbish.
It has an awful lot of potential especially for educational users.

I use both on and offline.
Support issues tend to get looked at pretty quickly from what I have seen so far.

They seem to have managed to get it running on raspberry pis (with small workaround)
So linux would seem to be supported in a limited fashion.

Give it time is my advice the girls and boys in the backroom are doing thier best.
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: mastrolinux on Jul 07, 2016, 04:41 pm
Hi,

Some clarifications.

Both Linux and Windows are completely supported in the last stable version (Ubuntu 14.04 or 16.04 and Windows 10).
To avoid using the Admin installer there is a workaround (the admin is needed to install certificate at the system level).

You can go here:
https://github.com/arduino/arduino-create-agent#development compile your version and in that case you will not need the Admin installer. You can just run the script. The fact is you will not have the certificate installed so you have to manually import it going to https://localhost:8991/ (https://localhost:8991/) in your preferred browser. After you correctly added an exceptio or you imported the certificate manually, then you can access to the editor with no need of Admin role.

Thanks,

Luca

Hello,

as an idea, in the link below you'll find a simple script to automate writing main code blocks (if, for, while).

It would be a feature I espect, also in the client IDE, considering it an alternative to code intellisense or code hint.

Please, feel free to check the script at GitHub and implement or enhance it:

Hello everyone,

Is there a way of editing the Custom Libraries? I think it would be helpful if we could edit the libraries just like any other sketch.

For instance, I uploaded an OneWire library that is not working OK in the web editor:
(/tmp/webide_tmp536567/libraries/OneWire/OneWire.cpp:83:21: fatal error: arduino.h: No such file or directory
#include <arduino.h>)

Since there's no way of editing it I have to re-upload it as a zip file after I modify it on the computer.

Thank you.

Upload Project documentation as PDF files.

I have tried uploading PNG images of an A4 portrait page containing my circuit diagram, it works but the resulting image is too small to use.

I have 10 pages in my design and it looks like I can only save 3.  Is this a size or quantity restriction?

A simpler solution would be to be attach a PDF file (or files) to a project - this would be easier than providing a link to an external location.
(It does not need to be displayed, just downloadable).

Have you tried JPG ? IGNORE  its not letting me use JPG's anymore
It seems a little better than PNG. (it did)

By 10 pages do you mean tabs ?

For files there is a limit size per individual file of 10 mb I think and you can also use the 4 way expansion icon to get more screen room.


Landscape seems better too.

Hi,

I really like using the Web IDE. I've started using BitBucket for a project I'm working on. The problem I have encountered is that the Web IDE will only download the sketch as a zip file which also includes the ReadMe file and a .json.

Once I've downloaded it to my computer I need to open it and move the file to my .git folder. I've gone back to using the regular IDE as this method adds too many steps.

Is there a way to an option to export only the .ino file?

Thank you for adding new boards since I last looked.

I have a request that would allow me to be more inclusive in my education practice on a shoestring with low income urban youth of color.

I would love to add ATTiny 85 as a board because while we use full size Arduinos teaching skills and for group projects, I would love to do teaching activities for my low income youth of color that they can take home --- I found a source for ATTinys that makes it affordable enough that I can let individuals take them home!

Why on Arduino Create online? 

Codebender made the whole teaching of microcontrollers possible.  We deal with so many different kinds of computers and old computers and different community organizations that mess with computers all the time.  So keeping on the latest version of Arduino IDE + libraries + plug ins + code was a huge obstacle.  If the coding environment is online and if youth can build a library of "starter programs" as they learn and not have to worry about where the latest version of their program is, it makes a huge difference. 

Thank you for considering. 
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: 00alis on Jan 04, 2017, 10:55 am
Dear @zackboston thank you so much for your email. You made a great point about supporting ATTinys, unfortunately we are only supporting only Arduino boards and their cores for now, with ATTiny we will need to implement an external bootloader, so we need to schedule that feature first. I am totally going to bring your case to the management and hopefully we can find a way to schedule this implementation in the near future. Please keep your requests coming as this way we understand where the platform needs to go in the future.

Best!

3.) LiquidCrystal_I2C library. There should be a way to import the 3rd party
    Libraries already set up on your PC. The supported 3rd party libraries are
    a very limited subset of what's out there. My choice of libraries used is
    usually affected by the tutorials (text & video). If they use an "odd-ball"
    library to get the job done, then I will likely use it. I don't like being forced
    to re-learn how to adapt other "supported" libraries, some of which don't
    offer all the functionality I'm looking for.

That's all from my first look at Arduino Web Editor.  Seems I'll have to wait
awhile before adopting it. If I'm wrong on anything, let me know how to do it.

@ randmor.

Android is in the pipeline so yours and a lot of other peoples voices have been heard.

Importing 3rd party libs is already there too and has been for a while.

(http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=361376.0;attach=198813)


As for third party languages I think you are going to be waiting for that as its not really something I can see them doing at this point in time. However stranger things have happened.


BTW you lib is already available in CREATE...just had a quick look to be sure.
Try playing with the Library manager a little...It always surprises me

Think that would be a project all of its own and a very large one at that.
There are a few threads in some other parts of the forum with regards to the specific topic of simulators / emulators.

They might be worth your time following up to see where people are on that aspect.

Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: ballscrewbob on Mar 03, 2017, 07:40 pm

I think since they went  "COMMERCIAL" the code will more than likely be proprietary and they would probably not want to share it unless they were getting a good chunk of profit out of it.

That would be my personal take on it.

Plus 100 for the Chromebook plugin!

Not just for my own personal interest either. There are a ton of schools moving to Chromebooks and it's essential that they are able to use the Arduino Web IDE as the Arduino is still the best gateway to an interesting and exciting STEM education.
With the death of codebender.cc this need is greater than ever as there are schools that were already using the great Chromebook Arduino combination via codebender's web based IDE.
We need a replacement ASAP before these schools abandon either the Chromebooks, or the Arduino, or both.

Thanks.

Yes, my link was to a Create discussion about using the Serial Monitor. Isn't this wishlist for Create? Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your point, CrossRoads.

I included that link to provide those interested for more information "to the fullest extent possible". Since that discussion concluded that my suggestion wasn't possible with the current Create configuration, I'm presenting it here as an idea for a future Create feature. Is there a problem with doing this?

How cool would it be to have a digital graphical bread boarding simulation similar to multisim. I'm not sure if there is already software like this for the Arduino but man it would be so nice for planning out projects before pulling out all the boxes of parts. I imagine it would be a great platform to save and share circuit designs as well if you only have one board and multiple projects running at once.

Actually if someone reads this and knows of a piece of software to Sim the Arduino Uno... Let me know!
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: ballscrewbob on Apr 17, 2017, 03:33 pm
@riggy

This wish list is more dedicated to the CREATE platform so I doubt it would be added and if it were it would be way down the list.

However it is mentioned in a few other sections more appropriate to your wish and even a few sources for such things. Just type simulator into the search box provided for you at the top of this page.
Dont be put off that it takes you to google as the results are from the forum.

I truly hate that it jumps to google as that puts a lot of people off using it but it is all we have around here for now.

Happy hunting for your simulator but be aware that they do seem to be a little limited in functionality for the most part IMHO.

It would be nice if users could vote for wishes from a wishlist. Of course IDE developers should remain free to set the priorities, but I think it would be helpful. As for my own wish - sketch upload from Android devices to Arduino - I think I read about this wish somewhere, but I don't know if other users want it as bad as me. A (working) alternative for me is ArduinoDroid but it needs more care for program/library updates and the latest version is running only in Android 5 and higher. Being able to change code on the fly only with an Android phone or tablet is really a nice feature, especially if the Arduino is built into a mowing robot, a rain sensor, a wearable device ..

Hello,
about the "Scratch or blockly-like coding environment", I'm the creator of Blockly@duino (https://github.com/technologiescollege/Blockly-at-rduino (https://github.com/technologiescollege/Blockly-at-rduino)). There are also another projects based on BlocklyDuino & Blockly new version :

I think the real pb is to communicate with Arduino IDE easily, without adding Python server (most common choice). Arduino has tools like Arduino Create but how to interact with???
I added the Codebender plugin many months ago...but it's not a valid solution.

So a part of job is finished, miss just few code to interact with.

It would be really useful if a zip file could be uploaded with all the project with things like PCB layout files, schematics, images of the hardware, notes, etc. Integration with dropbox and github is not the same thing as having it in one location. Dropbox and github may be popular today but who knows about tomorrow.

You can incorporate those items with the tabs in create.
There are a couple of caveats though as picture sizes can crash a sketch if they are too big.
They can also slow down CREATE a lot too at your end.
Notes are also easy in CREATE.

I haven't tried a fully tabbed upload with a zip.

I tried a simple test of downloading a sketch from CREATE in which I included both pictures and text of different types.

Then "uploaded it back to create and it did bring everything back in. I had changed the file names of the folder and sketch to prevent a conflict of file names with the existing one
Changed the following. Zip name, sub folder name, sketch name eg "Example1.zip" became "Example1B.zip", Folder and sketch also became "Example1B.zip"

Hello,

I've only just become aware of the web-based development environment. It feels a bit clunky but that's partly me not being familiar with it. I like the colour coding for the text.

Id like to see some form of Auto-complete added to the editor. Something along the lines of what I see when adding/editing formulas in Excel. A great addition would be something like the 'variables' etc being auto detected by the environment then automatically added to the Auto-complete list.

Just a thought anyway.

I don't know about plans for the web editor but this has already been done for the standard Arduino IDE. You can try it out by downloading the beta version here:
http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software#beta (http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software#beta)
you activate auto-complete by pressing Ctrl+Space.

Note that this is still in the testing phase so it's not guaranteed to be 100% ready for use. If you do try it out and encounter any problems please report them so the developers can make a fix.

Add my vote for either a Board Manager option, or add more of the Adafruit and other partner boards. I'm a fan of the desktop IDE, and the MS IDE App, but I'm exploring the web editor again. My current project is teaching a grade-9 class (13-14 yrs old) using Adafruit Adalloger M0 (for speed and memory and SD Card and battery reasons). It's been hard trying to get 30 machines set up consistently with the IDE and USB drivers needed because students don't have Admin credentials on the machines. I was hoping that the Web IDE could make this issue easier.

As I write this, I'm thinking that the web editor might not be able to help the USB Driver issues, but adding boards for other vendors might still invoke the need to add USB drivers for some non-Italy boards. It's probably a bigger problem than I see from my chair tonight.

Thanks for the efforts you put in, and for considering adding at least more boards...

Hi!  I am a teacher, and I have been wanting to work with Arduino boards with my students for a little while, usually in the context of having my beginner-level computer science girls create a wearable to get them hooked into coding.  It seems that creating most wearables involves some complexity that is a bit above the knowledge and skills level that a young beginner would have during their very first-experience with coding.  It's been a bit of a pardox, because creating and coding wearables is a great hook as a first experience to get girls interested in learning about CS, but you have to know a little bit about CS or have someone mentoring you who does to be able to create your first wearable.  A couple of weeks ago, I I discovered Jewelbots, a  ready-to-go wearable that uses the Arduino IDE and masks any complexity that is normally involved in creating and coding a wearable!  After working with Jewelbots for the past week and a half and experiencing success with the with the Arduino IDE, I now am feeling confident enough to try more Arduino boards in the future!  I imagine that every Jewelbot user is probably gaining that same self-confidence and positive self-expectancy with Arduinos.  I would consider Jewelbots board as an Arduino "gateway board."  I would like to use Jewelbots with my beginner-level students to introduce them to coding and making with Arduino. However, right now, the Jewelbots board is not yet available on the Web Editor IDE, and I would like to request that it be added.  Adding the Jewelbots board on the Web Editor IDE would be most ideal for beginners because using the Web Editor IDE yet again masks the complexity that a beginner might experience downloading and configuring Arduino software. Also, students can easily then access the Arduino Web Editor IDE from both personal and school devices.  Being able to get started right away on the Web Based Arduino IDE means that the young users (and their parents and teachers like me) will immediately have a positive first experience with this Arduino "gateway" board, which builds confidence trying a more complex Arduino board in the future.  How may I go about requesting that the Jewelbots board be added to the Arduino Web Editor IDE so that I can use this with my students?  Thank you so much for any help that can be offered!

@Deanna

I looked at this jewelbot.

A little disappointing it doesn't seem to be based on an existing MCU or mention the MCU type.
You might be better off looking at the GEMMA  as they are much more versatile sew-able and expandable.

They are also much better supported throughout the Arduino world and would let those girls with a little more imagination go a little further.
Given the scenario you laid out the GEMMA would be a much better fit and also fall within many curriculum in other terms of reference.

That last bit would allow you to see the more gifted girls easier. That makes a teachers job a lot easier too.
I find it hard to see it as a gateway board and much more of a toy, but thats just my opinion.


Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: sarajo on Feb 20, 2018, 07:37 pm
Thank you for the kind words, Deanna!

Hi All,

   Creator of Jewelbots here, thanks for all your comments! Jewelbots has been a labor of love for years and has been open source since day 1. Jewelbots was created after speaking with over 200 girls in our demographic and asking them "what can we build for you that would inspire you to code"? What we heard from them across the board is that the most important thing in their lives at this age are their friends and friendships. So, we built them smart friendship bracelets that react to their friends, allow them to send secret messages, and allow them to code whatever they can come up with given their imagination.

  We used the Nordic nRF51822 chip as the size was most compatible with making something for tiny wrists (the chip and the antenna are 4mm x 4mm). We made sure that it was compatible with the Arduino IDE as we're huge fans of Arduino and open source in general.

@ballscrewbob thanks for your feedback! GEMMA are awesome tools for learning. Jewelbots has significantly more functionality and capabilities including Bluetooth, 4 RGB LEDs, and a vibration motor. With it users have created metronomes, games, and all kinds of custom friend interactions. GEMMA is awesome for beginners, but Jewelbots are much more flexible and allow you to build many things the GEMMA is incapable of.

Though, we would agree, we definitely are a toy, and that's the best part. Of the users that pick up Jewelbots, 100% of them use them as toys, and 44% of them sit down and code them. Our underserved demographics are finally being exposed to things that are both feminine and technical, many for the very first time.

Jewelbots have been a fun and awesome way to engage young women in coding through our non-profit, Kansas City Women in Technology, and being able to use the web IDE will help us with families with group books or with work/school computers with no administrative privileges for downloads.

If there's anything the software developers on our teams can do to help make this happen, we'd love to know how we can contribute!

Another voice chiming in who wants to include Jewelbots with the Web IDE in our curriculum to teach teens to code. The library provides us with Chromebooks for use in our programs. They do have some Windows machines available, but they do not have permission to install anything. Also when students are provided laptops in school, they do not have administrative privileges, so our curriculum options are limited to what we can do on the web. We use the Cloud9 IDE for other development projects, so we know that this kind of environment works well for our students.

Post by: ballscrewbob on Feb 20, 2018, 08:40 pm
Clearly something quite odd here about the jewelbot posts.

Having been a quite close member of this section of the forums for some time I have NEVER seen such a concerted effort to gain traction for a single board.

But in fairness to sarajo.

Nice that you should mention the Chip used and maybe you should also mention much clearer on your web sites what you use.

It is still not a "mainstream" MCU in the Arduino world And as you yourself say it is a "toy".

It does have some decent capability but doesnt fit as well with the STEM programs often used in education.

I also find the demographic exceptionally small and seeing as it only seems to have quite recently come out of the KS system then myself I dont see it becoming a part of "additional boards" until that demographic is very much larger.

However I must stress those are only my personal opinions and NOT that of Arduino.

Our company sponsors robot clubs in local middle schools in conjunction with City Year.

The robots have been a hit; however, the Jewelbots have been very popular with the young women and have increased retention. Unfortunately, the Ardruino setup requires non-school laptops to be used which is limiting our ability to bring the technology to more locations.

The schools we are working with are Title 1 locations and neither the school nor student can afford laptops. There are a very limited number of Chromebooks that we use during club time. The robots are utilizing micro:bit and makecode. Having a web-based option for Jewelbots would allow us to roll-out their use to more locations and retain more young women.

If there is something we can do to help make the board set available in the Web IDE, let me know!

Post by: mjcaisse on Feb 20, 2018, 09:25 pm
Hi ballscrewbob -

I don't think there is anything odd. Jewelbots have made a good impression with a number of professional programmers.

Working in constrained environments like a school can result in some trade-offs. Hearing that there might be an opportunity to remove one of the largest road-blocks we hit encouraged me to post my vote.

I'm unsure about your assessment of demographic. Middle-school-girls is a hugely important demographic to the success of STEM and diversity in technology. All women programmers have passed through or will pass through that demographic at some point.

Totally agree with more women in the IT field and I think you would be happily surprised by diversity of the team involved behind the scenes of CREATE.

I just find the "concerted" effort a little too convenient to be just accidental.
That may be my background as a detail orientated person and longevity on the internet / pre internet kicking in.

Clearly something quite odd here about the jewelbot posts.

Having been a quite close member of this section of the forums for some time I have NEVER seen such a concerted effort to gain traction for a single board.

But in fairness to sarajo.

Nice that you should mention the Chip used and maybe you should also mention much clearer on your web sites what you use.

It is still not a "mainstream" MCU in the Arduino world And as you yourself say it is a "toy".

It does have some decent capability but doesnt fit as well with the STEM programs often used in education.

I also find the demographic exceptionally small and seeing as it only seems to have quite recently come out of the KS system then myself I dont see it becoming a part of "additional boards" until that demographic is very much larger.

However I must stress those are only my personal opinions and NOT that of Arduino.
Please be less suspicious,  I think it is not that odd.

I do not know jewelbot, but this is exactly how new things get momentum.  And apparently jewelbot has allready a group of active users. Maybe that demograpic is or looks small but I recall in 2009 when I started reading this forum there were less than 100 visiters a day (now it are thousands). And Arduino started with a group less than 10. Partly with the goal to educate people and have fun. I see something similar with jewelbot.

Best thing you can do if you want jewelbot embedded into the IDE is to raise an issue and explain your goals in github.com/arduino,
or better make a pull request so it can be integrated without effort. After all it is open source. Be aware that it can (will ?) take plenty of time before reactions come.

Second thing to do is to get onto the developers mailing list of Arduino and make your point.

Finally I would advise to show what you can do with jewelbots in the exhibition section, to get more fans.

Note that this merge into Arduino will only really work if jewelbot is open source/hardware and I just don't know if that is the case.

Another interesting route could be to contact Lady Ada from Adafruit.com - she is very interested in new tech trends.

This is also my personal opinion

Thanks for adding the reason I was suspicious.
Had I seen that earlier I might not have been so.

But as Rob pointed out...To get the traction you need you need to go to such as Github etc and raise the issues over there.

Flooding a forum might not get the reaction you desire.
There are ways and means and Rob's is the best way.
Get the developers for Jewelbot to talk to people in the proper places.

Best thing you can do if you want jewelbot embedded into the IDE is to raise an issue and explain your goals in github.com/arduino,
Actually this is about adding Jewelbots (https://jewelbots.com/) support to the Arduino Web Editor. AFAIK Jewelbots have already created a boards support package that makes it easy to add Jewelbots boards to the standard Arduino IDE:
https://github.com/Jewelbots/arduino-library (https://github.com/Jewelbots/arduino-library)
In fact the Arduino Web Editor developers have specifically stated that the Create > Editor forum section is the place where they want to track bugs and feature requests generally related to the Arduino Web Editor:
https://github.com/arduino/arduino-create/issues/1 (https://github.com/arduino/arduino-create/issues/1)

or better make a pull request so it can be integrated without effort. After all it is open source.
Although some parts of the Arduino Web Editor are open source, unfortunately that part that would need to be changed is not.

I looked at Jewelbots a while back and it looks pretty cool! You have the option of using them at a very basic "toy" level level to get started but it doesn't stop there because you can progress to writing firmware with the Arduino IDE or even go beyond that as far as you like.

Just a couple days ago I listened to an interview with someone who worked on the project:
https://www.embedded.fm/episodes/173 (https://www.embedded.fm/episodes/173)
It's probably not the best overview of Jewelbots since that's not really what the interview was about but I thought it was really interesting hearing about the an experienced programmer's first encounter with embedded systems. Even though that's not how you would ordinarily expect an electronic product to be developed, by the end I found myself thinking this was the perfect person for the job because, in addition to having the skills to do quality work, he also had the learning experiences which I would hope would provide a better understanding of the user experience. I think that often the people with the most knowledge have forgotten what it's like to be a beginner and thus have a hard time making things beginner friendly.

Not sure why most of the jewelbot team need to try speak as a crowd.

And BTW I was NOT the first to suggest an alternative source for discussion.
May I respectfully suggest you pick ONE member to speak on behalf of your team and stick with it.

Hey Bob,

   Thanks for your question, right now there have been almost 11,000 Jewelbots shipped to 38 countries! We're all over the world. As far as team members in this thread, the only official Jewelbots employee that has spoken is me! We're super honored to have amazing community members leading their own movements getting more girls coding, and super happy to be supporting them as one of the tools they are using.

Thanks @robtillaart for your support. Much appreciated, glad you gave us the benefit of the doubt.

We do have our boards setup for the Arduino IDE, however, we don't have them on the web editor which is what is stopping students in schools from being able to code their Jewelbots with Chromebooks (though, we're also looking into other solutions). We're petitioning here as that's what we were advised to do, though, if there is a better way to get included in the web create interface we're super down to try that.

Thanks again for your help.
Title: Re: Wish-list and ideas
Post by: Deanna on Feb 21, 2018, 07:23 pm
I posted on this forum wish-list to request that the Jewelbots board to be added to the Web editor because I have already evaluated the tool according to the CS curriculum and the existing research on girls in CS and found the Jewelbots to be an appropriate tool for achieving specific curriculum standards and goals.

Nothing nefarious, @ballscrewbob. Just a teacher trying to teach and use a tool that I have determined to be appropriate for specific CS curriculum standards. I teach several different levels of computer science classes on the software development pathway, from true beginners in middle school with no computer science experience to students with at least 3 years of coding experience who are earning advanced placement credit for college. From my 15 years of experience teaching STEM at the middle school and high school level, and my 12 years of curriculum writing experience, I am deeply familiar with the national, state, and local curriculum standards for science and CS.  I am also very familiar with the research in engaging students in STEM, with a focus on the research findings in the last decade on engaging girls in computer science. Based on the curriculum standards, the research findings, and experience, educators such as myself select the appropriate tools for specific curriculum standards, program goals, and student needs.

The Jewelbot and the GEMMA are appropriate for use at different points in the CS curriculum, but they are not interchangeable in their use within the STEM curriculum. 

The GEMMA is an outstanding tool for creating the wearables and other projects, and it requires that the students master skills in addition to coding including wiring and soldering sensors and actuators, and, possibly, as mentioned by @ballscrewbob, sewing, if the product is to be wearable. The GEMMA allows for great creativity to make whatever the students wants for creative projects, which is outstanding, and makes it a good tool for achieving specific curriculum standards. One appropriate potential use for the GEMMA in the CS Principles class curriculum is the "create" project.

Serving a different purpose, the Jewelbot is "ready-to-code-and-wear" wearable that masks that complexity of wiring and soldering sensors and actuators, as a button, Bluetooth, 4 LEDs, and buzzer are already built in.  Also, the student does not have to learn to sew or craft to wear the product of their code, it is already connected to a wrist band.  Therefore, I can use the Jewelbot on Day 1 in a Intro to CS class or club with true novices to dive immediately into the introductory coding principles covered in the curriculum, with no soldering, sewing, or other technical crafting skills required.  On day 1, my students can wear out their coded product after only a 45 minute class, can work on it at home more if they wish, and then will return to class the next day to master the next introductory-level coding principles. The Jewelbot is a tool that I plan to use in my curriculum, among other tools that I am already using, for novice students who are mastering of introductory coding principles in the curriculum.

Again, the key for true novices is high engagement with masked complexity. Jewelbots are appropriate for engaging novice students in mastering curriculum standards in an engaging way which leads to their engaging in more CS projects, including creating projects using Ardino boards that do not mask complexity, including, but not limited to, the GEMMA.  In my previous post, when I discussed the use of the Jewelbots as a "gateway" board, I was thinking of the GEMMA as one of the possible boards.

I posted the request for the Jewelbots board to be added to the Arduino Web Editor because I have determined that Jewelbots is appropriate tool for teaching specific CS principles, achieving specific curriculum standards and program goals in my introductory coding classes and clubs for young novices. I posted this request in this forum because using the the Web Editor would allow educators like me and our students to overcome the normal hurdles we encounter installing software on school-district PCs to which we do not have administrative access. My school district is 1:1 with Chromebooks as well.

I very much appreciate the responsiveness of @sarajo as well as the other educators, Jewelbots users, and members of this forum who have constructively advised ways to work towards getting the Jewelbots board added to the Arduino Web editor so I can use this tool with my students.


Thank you!

May I suggest to add a confirmation message to the select board command in the Editor?

For now, the box vanishes just after after hitting OK, so I never know whether the Create picks my selection.

Another suggestion is to include an option to de-activate self detection of the board, thus allowing a full manual selection or to link the selection to the profile of the user and not to the sketch.


Thanks for the web-software! I know is a difficult and long way effort.

It would be great to be able to have more persistence in the editor.  It is rather clunky to try to switch between multiple projects at the same time.  IMO it needs a concept of project tabs.  Try scrolling down in a long sketch, then open an example from a library, then try going back to your original sketch.  The sketchbook by default goes to the top sketch, not the one you had open previously.  That makes copying from examples and libraries inconvenient.

I know I am not the first one to ask for it: Version control.

The web editor is probably only used by single developers, so that features required for teams can be left out. For example, simplified integration with Github, and commands like creating commits and branches, go ing back to older commits, switching the branch.

The serial monitor takes the place of the sketch view when in use.

I would love the ability to prove off my code via the simulator before I upload it to the actual board. Maybe to set up output registers and input registers that the simulator can then access that would be triggered on or off based on the simulated code. this would all but guarantee that the code itself is sound before even trying to run it live on the actual board.

I think the easiest way to accomplish that would be if they switched to using the GitHub issue tracker for feature requests and bug reports. GitHub allows you to give a "thumbs up" to feature requests, which could be seen as votes. Using a proper issue tracker has a lot of other advantages. An argument against is that probably the average Arduino Web Editor user is more likely to have an Arduino Forum account than a GitHub account and might not want to create a (free) GitHub account just to request a feature or report a bug.

Edit custom libraries from within the online IDE

Hi,

The main thing I would love to see, is the ability the edit custom ".h" and ".cpp" files, from within the online IDE. It surprised me to see that this is hardly mentioned, as it would be an incredibly useful tool.

At the moment, when I want to edit a custom library, I have to:
-Remove the library from the IDE
-Edit the library in a text editor
-Upload the edited version to the IDE

Whereas if it were editable in IDE, everything would be much easier / way more portable.

It was mentioned as being on the "to-do list" in the following post:

Currently Library edits are not available in CREATE.

Your only option is to modify the source you used and upload and over write the on in the library manager.

Sorry about that but I know that library functions were mentioned as being on the "to-do" list.


Although it seems this post is a bit outdated, are you still planning on implementing this feature?

Thank you,

~Jonathan

I need to rebuild all due to the form of conditional compilation controlled by external files that the IDE doesn't notice.

The online IDE has been incredible so far and I absolutely love the portability it provides. Being able to edit libraries on the go is a great addition to the IDE.

However, to finally get this much desired feature after so long, only to have it locked behind some paid subscription, just feels like a big insult to me. Especially when you consider the amount of free and effective alternatives out there.

I'm sorry. There is just no way I'm going to pay for the ability to edit my libraries.
