Anyone tried this?

While not super exciting for Arduino it does give me ideas about how we could take Gadgeteer to the masses who don’t want to use a Windows OS if we had a similar online site & plugin.

@ ianlee74 - This is a good idea! It’s similar to what mBed does http://mbed.org/. The mBed site has shared libraries, which is a convenient way to share code.

I can think of few things less appealing than editing code in a browser. In my experience, browsers are poor at browsing webpages, and even poorer at everything else.

Not saying it can’t be done (because it obviously can…), or that it shouldn’t even, but I like my very powerful, very fast IDE.

Also, how would debugging work?


#4

Browsers are getting increasingly sophisticated. Visual Studio is getting really big and complex, and compared to the very few lines some prototype builders and students are writing it might be a serious overkill.

I love VS, but I see that other options would be powerful as well to promote the platform and get an increased market share, and thereby more and better modules - and a bigger community.

I am still wondering if real-time-live-debugging would be possible…?


#5

Browsers are as big and complex as Visual Studio, or near enough.

Just my opinion.
