Hello,

A) i was looking for a way to print the sketch (as shown on the screen, so in color and with linenumbers)...
B) i liked to have a way to reset the arduino in the menu without having to go over to the PCB..

Thanks, Ton

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Although it seems this post is a bit outdated, are you still planning on implementing this feature?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

It is on a "road-map" but unfortunately I cannot say when it may be implemented.
Sooner than later would be my preference but so much work for such a small team.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

I would like to be able to choose 'rebuild all'.
At present I need to choose a non-valid board, start compile till it fails and then go back and select the correct board.
I need to rebuild all due to the form of conditional compilation controlled by external files that the IDE doesn't notice.
Thanks.

Is this with the ONLINE IDE ?

Would love to see support for the Adafruit Feather M4 Express board (https://www.adafruit.com/product/3857). Support for this board is available in the 'on-disk' version of the Arduino IDE. Would be great if Arduino Create also supported it.

Hi everybody,
we are happy to announce that support for ESP8266 and library editing are now available on Create Web Editor with the Maker Plan. Thanks for your patience!

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.

Ability to verify/compile a sketch without the plugin or board connected. For times when you are away from home and simply want to draft some ideas and verify the syntax by compiling the sketch.

It doesn't appear that the current editor allows this. Just gives the "Error compiling, check if you have selected a board and if it's currently available".

@Sistom

For that there is the regular IDE ( see below the CREATE option) that you can install and even run as a portable version should you wish to move between computers

An "ONLINE" ide as CREATE is is just that. It is for ONLINE / WEB based use.

Most "use" cases are handled for almost every user.

@Sistom, @ballscrewbob,
actually that's totally possible, just select the desired target from the boards dropdown -> Select Other Board & Port, and the sketch will compile even if no board is connected and plugin not installed

In libraries, computer labs, and work environments that do not allow installs or removable storage devices, the Online IDE would be the only option. It seems like it would be a simple option to allow compiling a sketch without a connected arduino device.

I'm unable to even select a board in the editor. The board-select area in the editor is blocked by the following error: "No Plugin Connection. Uploading is disabled until you reconnect. Check you Firewall or Antivirus configuration."

@Sistom,
can I see a screenshot of your situation? Please have a look at mine attached

Your screenshot helped a lot. My browser was not displaying the X to close the yellow warning message covering the board select dropdown. I was able to click on the location where the X should have been displayed and closed the warning message and everything is now working as you've stated. Thanks for your help!
