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.

@00alis I mean like a way to password protect a project, so that only people with the password can edit, and those without may only view!

what do you mean with password protected


Oh I get it, yes we are implementing a public/private project feature, currently all your projects are private but it won't be so in the future, thanks!


MKR1000 tested ok.
Board identified and verified upload basic blink test and modified blink sketch.
Good work!


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.


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.

@cdmoro did you know you can expand the Serial Monitor panel a lot, see screenshot :)


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

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


It'd be great if it had Fritzing integration, though

A circuit simulator would be nice as well, although I don't know how easy it would be to make.


I don't want to be rude, but I wish Arduino Create's projects weren't so polluted of Azure/Windows 10 (and 1sheeld) stuff. It seems (is it??) a sponsorized site.


@Osqui this is because of popular the contest https://www.hackster.io/challenges/arduino-microsoft-maker. I hope the more users will add content the more the website will be open to other platform.

Totally agree !
For education, that would be great tools !

I'm a french STEM teacher and instructor for teacher, for kids from 9 to 19, my software (Blockly@rduino) is very popular in France & Quebec too (they are just discovering Arduino for Education ! That's great : http://recitmst.qc.ca/arduino/).

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 !
