Arduino 1.8.10 How to upload without compiling

I like to click the verify button to get the bugs out of my sketch without uploading, then when I am ready, I’d like to click the upload button.

Is there a way I can get Arduino to upload WITHOUT COMPILING?

It seems to have to recompile all the libraries every time.

Thanks, Mark.

There is compilation caching so only the sketch should be recompiled every time, unless you have changed the board selection or modified library files.

The caching system has been improved over time and you are using an outdated version of the Arduino IDE so you might experience improved efficiency if you update to the latest version.

As for uploading without recompiling anything, you can do this using Arduino CLI:

This is exactly what I was looking for. I suspect it will work fine, but if I have issues, I may come back.


You're welcome. I'm glad if I was able to be of assistance. Enjoy!
