hi arduino,i did not see any other questions here, so figured i'd toss one in. here's our ama for massimo and the arduino team...can we get the number of downloads for the libraries from arduino?you can find out are things like the total number of authors, libraries they have, and a few more things - the site arduinolibraries.info (https://www.arduinolibraries.info/) displays what is available (GitHub here - https://github.com/njh/arduino-libraries).here are the top 10 Arduino library authors as of March 11th, 2019 9:00 PM EDT.adafruit: Adafruit Industries 168sparkfun: SparkFun Electronics 88seeed-studio: Seeed Studio 58arduino-libraries: Arduino Libraries 52stm32duino: STM32duino 45pololu: Pololu Robotics and Electronics 34paulstoffregen: Paul Stoffregen 25faboplatform: Fabo 24hideakitai: Hideaki Tai 23luisllamasbinaburo: Luis Llamas 21there are a total of 2,081 libraries and 864 authors.the way arduinolibraries.info works is that it gets the JSON file (https://downloads.arduino.cc/libraries/library_index.json) from the arduino library manager and uses the information there to match up what is on GitHub and display it on the site. It generates a static site, clever way to display things, there is also a twitter account that tweets out new libraries and updates too: @arduinolibs.i poked around the JSON file and saw that the libraries are stored on arduino's servers, for example here's one ours - Adafruit_NeoMatrix-1.0.0.zip, so that means there are some logs or stats somewhere that could also be displayed for the developers and community to know which libraries are downloaded the most, and which ones to make sure are updated and worked on if they are popular.arduino has the number of downloads of the IDE and users to the site, so this is something that arduino likely has and would be really useful for developers and the community. image above is from Arduino Day 2018 (video).we have a blog post about this here:https://blog.adafruit.com/2019/03/11/10-arduino-library-authors-arduino-arduinolibs-arduino/cheers,pt / adafruit
Any idea when Arduino IDE 1.9 might become a non-beta, official release?Or as a sort of general philosophical question, how long should beta test periods be for a widely used open source project like Arduino?
Hi, i'm Beatrice, a 13 years old beginner maker. I have a very simple question for Massimo Banzi, my favourite genius maker: in your opinion, what are the top 5 qualities of a maker? I think this topic is relevant for young people like me. Thanks!
Hi sir,Is it possible to copy a program from an Arduino to the computer ?...I mean that I suppose my computer crashed and the past program was running on my Arduino...is it possible to retrieve it ?If yes, how to perform that ?Thanks very much !!!
