is there some sort of emulator i can test code on before my arduboy comes in the mail im going insane here
ive had some problems running programs written for python2.7 on python3
argh it has to be python lol, my pi3 runs python but my hdmi cable went missing...

None of which are fully 100% supported, and all are technically simulators or translators not emulators because you can't actually run compiled code. I think the most popular is the proton environment for visual C if you've got it.
