New Visual Arduino programming tool

Hello Everyone,

I am working on a new Visual Arduino Programming tool. You can see a snapshot here:

and you can see a short tutorial video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-yMtIzgIeU

If you are interested, you can join the Beta program. The Betas are posted in this community, and you can download them after joining: https://plus.google.com/communities/116125623808250792822

With best regards, Boian Mitov

I can't ever see myself doing that. I finds words to be much more clear and precise.

CrossRoads:

You mean the visual programming?

Yes.

CrossRoads: Yes.

You should never try it then, it tends to be very contagious, you may catch it ;-)

I am inclined to agree with @CrossRoads. Programming aids are all very well until you want to do something that they don't quite deal with, or which is not fully described in the instruction manual. Instruction manuals for Open Source Software are usually inadequate - if they exist at all.

How would someone debug code that is produced using your system? Even if it produces regular C/C++ code the user probably would not understand it as s/he probably chose your system to save him/herself the trouble of learning C/C++.

In any case, your image suggests it is a Windows product and I only have Linux.

Robin2: In any case, your image suggests it is a Windows product and I only have Linux.

Yeah... at the moment this is Windows only, MAC, and Linux versions are planned in the future. It uses component architecture, and allows you to create and install your own components.

As for documenting, debugging etc., we will see how it goes, and how it can be improved :-)

Cheers, Boian

Comprehensive documentation should be available right from Day 1 :)

Even in few days old Beta where every change is on the table :-D . If I can pull that, I surely will make it in the computer history :-D

looking.

Just posted Beta 10 in the Visuino Beta community on Google+ : https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/116125623808250792822

If you are interested, you can join, and download it from there.

How to join ? G+ says "to join this community you need to be invited"

ziorg77: How to join ? G+ says "to join this community you need to be invited"

This is strange. All you need is just request to join, and I will accept you. If you have problems, email me at mitov@mitov.com, your G+ ID or e-mail and I will send you invitation.

Just posted another tutorial video, this one on the new structured packet multichannel communication with the serial port, and showing multiple channels of digital and analog data in the scope, and in the new visual instrumentation panel.

Here is the video:

and a screenshot of the new visual instrumentation panel:

We just launched the site on time for the Arduino Birthday in the USA :-) - http://www.visuino.com

As you seem to have a lot of links to post, why not post them as clickable links

Your visuino.com page is partly obscured by some silly banner for facebook etc in my browser.

Thank you! I could not figure out earlier how to do it in this forum, but this time I have found the way after a bit of experimenting, and have modified the posts.

Can you please contact me - mitov@mitov.com and let me know what is obscuring the page for you and in what modes? The web designers are still working on it, and your input will be very valuable for us! You can send me some screenshot, and info on the resolution, browser etc.

With best regards, Boian

mitov: Let me know what is obscuring the page

Seems OK today.

Robin2: Seems OK today.

Thank you! We are still working to refine it. Please let me know if you have any problems with the site or the Visuino itself!

Visuino - the Visual Arduino Programming Environment Beta 19 is finally available: http://www.visuino.com

Fixed PWM pins and Analog pins on some of the boards. Experimentally added Trinket, and Digispark. Added optional inverters for the LED displays (for common Anode/Cathode), added component visualizer for the floating point LED display, and number of other fixes and improvements.
