Topic: Arduino Playground will be a regular website and not a wiki (Read 64550 times) previous topic - next topic


The CONTRBUTING.md file on the Arduino GitHub page also still says that Arduino playground is a publicly editable wiki: https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/blob/4c9da50e57030aebd4320fcc24e3f497f504b663/CONTRIBUTING.md


CONTRIBUTING.md was written long before this announcement came out. That file should not be used as an indicator of Arduino's plans. If the Playground is made read-only, that file will eventually be updated to reflect the change.


What a strange change. I hope that this doesn't happen.


I used this wiki, for years, and here i found again the same passion for MCUs I had during the ancient High School days.
Technically speacking I'm not prepared to give advice to anyone, but trought the flowing of posts, i found both questions and answers needed to fresh my knowing.
During this years i have been able to give life to my workshop projects, and belive me it really makes my life better.   

I just found this thread and reading about the future of the playground has motivated to make this post, my first one.
Having playground read only, not only a really bad idea, but i will change the role itself of this wonderfull place.

I decided to enrich my competence with arduino and its IDE just because of this huge knoledge base, so please don't block its grow.   

I found what "pert" said easy to understand and entirely acceptable.


It looks like the Arduino Playground has now been made read only. When I visit the Playground, I am shown as signed out of my Arduino account, and when I try to sign in it makes no difference.

So it might make sense to resume the discussions here of creating an independent Arduino wiki that is solely controlled by the Arduino community members. Any news from ChrisTenone or terryking228?

Hi everyone,

I'll renew an offer to host a lot/all of Playground on https://ArduinoInfo.Info .

Or collaborate on a new other site.

I'm in Japan/HongKong the next week but on the web most days.  I can put more effort in after the 15th.

@pert etal, what do you think would be best?

To reiterate, my primary concerns are:
  • Long-term sustainability.
  • Easy for anyone to participate, either by editing content or reviewing previous edits.
  • Transfer of existing Playground content.
