Updates on the Arduino Web Editor

Just a quick note to let you know that there are a few updates on Arduino Create :slight_smile:
You can always check the Bell icon in the upper right corner of create-staging.arduino.cc for more updates and notifications.

We are really close to fully support HTTPS and the Arduino/Genuino 101, we are going to post on this thread as soon as these new features will be available.

Thanks for all your feedback!! <3


Yesterday we deployed a new version of both the deamon and the server code. What you get now is full HTTPS support (both on server and agent) and many other improvements.

Arduino/Genuino 101 is now supported and we improved our way to deploy. It means we can release much faster and you will have an updated version more often.

Thank you,



we just deployed a new version of the web application.

We improved the libraries and examples search. Libraries and examples are now automatically filtered according to the current board selected. Searching in the examples sidebar now gives results also from the subfolders.

We also fixed many minor UI issues.

Thank you!

Upload via network on Yun is now available! Enjoy :)

You can now use Arduino Create Projects! Let us know how do you like it :)

We migrated Arduino Project Hub from create-staging.arduino.cc/projecthub to create.arduino.cc/projecthub, tomorrow we will also implement and automatic redirect.

Getting real!

The migration from create-staging.arduino.cc to create.arduino.cc is now complete! There is a redirect so everything should just work.

Today is Arduino Day! We are releasing the platform (but the Editor) publicly. Please check out Project Hub and the Arduino IoT manifesto. We are also releasing publicly the very early beta of Arduino Cloud, to start tinkering with your MKR1000.

Hi Arduino Create users,

Yesterday we updated our plugin, please let us know if it was not automatically updated to the latest (1.0.25-092da5b) or if you encounter any problem.

Sorry for the temporarily unavailability of the Web Editor this morning. We took a little bit longer than expected but now everything is back online! As reported in the email we sent you, here the main updates:

  • Each sketch you create on the Arduino Web Editor will have a unique URL, this is the first step to allow you to share sketches and access them online as you would do in Google Docs
  • We hugely improved the security of the Arduino Plugin, it can now only communicates with the Arduino Create page, no other site :)
  • We finally implemented the tab scaling! You can now display sketches with a lot of tabs and be able to access them all
  • A lot of small UX/UI improvements
  • We are working really hard to support Safari, we are almost done so keep tight

Since the update on the Arduino Plugin was pretty big, if for any reason it is not working try to:

  • Click on the Plugin tray icon, press Pause and then press Open again
  • You can also relaunch the Plugin as you would do with any application on your PC
  • Reinstall the Plugin from this link

Before you do so please open a bug reporting what is going wrong, the Plugin version you should see by clicking on the tray icon is 1.0.29.

Thanks as always for all your feedback!

We now support Safari!!!
Let us know if you encounter any bug on it by opening a thread.

Supporting IE is not as straight forward but we will definitely work on it.


More updates on our side!

We now support down to 700px, you can finally have something else on the side (in the meantime that we develop the split code screen).

We also fully support Chrome, Safari and Firefox.

You are awesome! My wish to edit on my iPad was granted within 3 days.

@mamu, there are still some bugs on iPad: you cannot close the Sketchbook panel for instance. If you find any please open a separate topic and list them all. Thanks!

@OOalis I will do. But to add my more advanced projects you will first have to fix the lib upload issue (like for u8glib)

@mamu, yes! It is on our radar, we will hopefully tackle it next week :)

Hi! We have some great news for Maker Faires San Mateo: You can import your Sketchbook via a .zip file! What’s more, sharing a sketch is now as easy as sharing a link. (See here for an example of how a public shared sketch looks like.)


@OOalis: am I the only one who is not seeing the link to the sample?

Sorry! Added now, to share a sketch click on the three dots by the Upload button and you will reach the Share modal (attached) :slight_smile:

My first experience was disappointing as I could not manage to open a sketch I have on my PC . It actually only imports the first tab but not all the other 20 tabs that where in the sketch.I gave up doing it manually. Robert
