No clue on that one, other than I don't see why it wouldn't work with the arduino.cc IDE as long as there is virtual serial connectivity.
Is this a arduino.org board that isn't supported by the default arduino.cc IDE enviroment?
If so, just move the needed board information over to the arduino.cc environment.
Hi Bill, thanks for the extra input.
As for the Arduino Uno Wi-Fi, it is indeed an Arduino.org board (a relatively new product from what I can tell). It's basically an Arduino Uno modified so as to have an integrated ESP8266 WiFi Module (here's the product page on Arduino.org: http://www.arduino.org/products/boards/arduino-uno-wifi).
I found this board very appealing because they kept the exact same layout as the original Arduino while adding wi-fi capabilities. This means - in theory at least - that I can use it either as a regular Arduino when I'm out and about or hook-up to it remotely when I'm home and have wifi so I don't have the hassle of cables and such.
Unfortunately, turns out it doesn't have native support within the arduino.cc IDE (v1.6.12).
Btw, I originally considered simply getting a Wi-Fi shield, but this new board seemed like a better option as I can have both wi-fi connectivity and add whichever shield I want on top.
I will look into porting the board information to the arduino.cc IDE, but I haven't got a clue as to setting up the Wi-Fi module or how to work with 'virtual serial connectivity'. Any useful pointers on this?
Also, as this is getting a bit off the original topic, should I start a new thread for this in this section of the forum (or perhaps another section if more appropriate)?
All the best
