is there alternate to gui based code ?

Do not want to use the windows GUI . I have been editing the source code but do not want to re-invent the wheel . Is there something already written ?

Thanks

If you dont want to use Windows GUI, use some command line text editor and can upload the sketch via avrdude commands.

What do you mean by the Windows GUI?

Do you really mean the Arduino IDE?

If so, it is possible to call the Arduino IDE from the command line. I use a Python program to do that so I can compile and upload programs from the Geany editor.
