Topic: B4R - New free development tool for Arduino (Read 5390 times) previous topic - next topic


B4R, which is currently in beta, is a new development tool for Arduino.

It is part of four similar development tools: B4A - Android, B4i - iOS, B4J - desktops, servers and ARM boards and now B4R for Arduino.

B4J and B4R are completely free.

All four tools use the same programming language, B4X. B4X is a modern version of visual basic.

The beta version can be downloaded here: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4r-beta-is-available-for-download.65651/

You can see the tutorials here (many more will be available soon): https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/forums/b4r-tutorials.76/

The nice thing about B4X tools is that you can quite easily create solutions with different platforms.

For example:
