Title: Welcome to the Arduino Web Editor
Post by: 00alis on Nov 24, 2015, 10:24 am
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:

How to get started:
Please check out this tutorial (https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub/Arduino_Genuino/getting-started-with-the-arduino-web-editor-4b3e4a?ref=user&ref_id=65561&offset=10) 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

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/ (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?
Title: Re: Welcome to the Arduino Web Editor
Post by: ballscrewbob on Sep 15, 2016, 03:40 am
@ 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)

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?
Title: Re: Welcome to the Arduino Web Editor
Post by: mastrolinux on Sep 29, 2016, 10:27 am
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.

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!
Ernesto

@ ernstc

As it stands my understanding is that it is meant for all.
And by that i include the many newcomers to "Arduino" who would probably quit if they had to start and learn VS etc.

For those much more advanced they already have better tools than either CREATE or the desktop IDE and in most cases can run them without much problem.

Its not a case of "How advanced can they make it" its how easy can they make it for transition from the regular IDE and still keep it simple.

As you yourself say it fits that bill just fine although there are more bits seeming to get added each week whether it be a tweak or and addition.

AM sure the dev team will take your thoughts onboard but there is quite the list of things to be done to it yet already.

But did you follow the superb guide HERE (https://create.arduino.cc/projecthub/Arduino_Genuino/getting-started-with-the-arduino-web-editor-4b3e4a?ref=user&ref_id=65561&offset=10) ?

There may also be some help in this post too (http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=459306.0)

If you still have problems Start a new thread with as much detail as you can as mentioned in the second link.

This is a great add on to the Arduino environment. this makes programming on the move much easier and  can now keep all my sketches in one place. I love that you have added the facility to expand and collapse the code with the arrows to the side. This makes it much easier to work on big projects. Thank you

The download for my Android tablet "Arduino Create...linux..." will not open on my Android tablet.
Is it not compatible?
Title: Re: Welcome to the Arduino Web Editor
Post by: ballscrewbob on Aug 26, 2018, 09:15 pm
@guardineer

It is available for Windows, MAC, Linux and CHROMEBOOK but not for regular android.
If yours is a regular android tablet then Create will not currently work on that platform.

@omertkod

They do but you have to be specific about the FLAVOUR.
Look for the "CHANGE" option in the board drop down menu.

Then look for the grey down arrow in the flavour box and change it to suit your type of MEGA.

Also try to avoid USB 3.0 ports as they are known to have some issues with Arduino boards.

I could not install successfully.
I have a board "Arduino uno" and my computer is window 10. so, I do not understand well, where is my problem..

thanks

Hi again Frank.

Click the small DOWN triangle in the BOARD box.

Select CHANGE and from there you should be able to match the board AND the COM port.

Depending on the board you choose you may also see FLAVOUR.
Quite often CLONES may require 328P (Old Bootloader) and some may just be 328P.

You already have created two threads for that issue, and now you're hijacking this thread too:

The plugin was installed with a no-admin networkaccount via a local admin.
Each time we have to install the plugin again.
Can it be done without reinstalling the plugin.
We don't want to work with an admin networkaccount.

Thanks in advance.

Might I  suggest you catch up on some of the posts at the top of the EDITOR section so you can add any information that is particular to your setup.
Individual schools tend to have different policy's in regards to software such as the editor so please add anything that could help in that regards.

Browser, OS etc etc. is all important information in getting you up and running.
The team is very responsive to EDU situations so there is a good chance they can help you out.

There are a few posts about this type of issue.
You may want to catch up on those first to see how far they take you.

There are also some additional posts in the CHROME editor section (not the same as Chrome browser) that may also help.

EDIT possible helpful links.

First (https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=465065.0)
Second (https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=502809.0)
Third (http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=415177.0)

There are a few more but I cant seem to place them right now.

Hi guys, total noob here.
Just got an Uno with a kit of handy bits and I'm trying it for the first time.
I'm using an old laptop with Kubuntu on it.
Tried the web editor. Stuff opens up OK. Got the board connected and there's what I assume is a power LED and a flashing LED.
I tried the blink example in the editor but nothing happens to the board. Realised I need to use the breadboard. Got that all connected up to the right places. Decided to try the fade example as I can definitely tell that's nothing to do with the onboard LEDs.
Nothing happens to the LED though. It's definitely connected up OK.
I have the board selected in the editor as the Arduino/Genuino Uno. The arrow to upload to the board appears to be greyed out.
No idea why.
This seems to be the crux of the problem. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

There are some LINUX specific posts you might want to read up on.
Think there were a couple about root permissions.

Sorry am not a linux person.
IIRC there were a couple more about 32 bit versions too so if it is older hardware they might also be worth looking out for.

The search magnifying glass (top right) could be you best bet but try be specific in your search terms as its not the best but it does work.
