Philipp 56 Posted July 28, 2012 Share Posted July 28, 2012 Hey, just a week ago I discovered Energia on hackaday and was very happy to see that I'm not the only one who loves the Launchpad idea but doesn't really want to install CCS or a whole lot of development tools just to get started. I think Energia really opens a new way for beginners to get into programming one of those MSP430 chips. Until now I experienced no problems at all using the Energia IDE, which is quite impressive in my opinion. I think Robert did an amazing job porting all the Arduino features to a tiny little 4.30$ dev tool. The only thing I noticed was the different theme compared to the recent arduino 1.x.x IDEs. Energia's current theme is basically a red version of the Wiring theme or Arduino 0xx. Because I really like the Arduino IDE and it's current design, I made a red version of it to replace the somewhat 'old fashioned' theme Energia is currently using. I attached a comparison of the four themes below, beginning from the top left there are: Arduino 1.0, my variation of the Energia theme, the current version of Wiring and the original Energia theme. What do you think? Cheers, Philipp bluehash and Rickta59 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
