Energia and Arduino 1.6.x

Recommended Posts



It seems that versions 1.6.4 and above of the original Arduino IDE now allow external boards, by specifying a URL for a config JSON file that contains pointers to all the files required, including the whole toolchain.

It seems that with this change there is no reason to keep Energia as a separate fork (other than the red backgroud replacing the blue Arduino one...).

I think that users (or at least I) would rather be glad to see Energia as a package that can be installed under one common GUI rather than having separate similar GUIs by different groups.

x86 support for Intel's Galileo and Edison, as well as support for ESP866 as an Arduino platform are already developed this way.
