Just got my Arduboy last week and have been messing around with it but using the Arduino IDE has really humbled me by making me feel like I’m back in high school before code highlighting, intellisense and code completion where part of my everyday workflow.
I’m on Mac so today I tried to get Xcode with the EmbedXCode plugin, which advertises that it can build right to the board. While there is a option to build for the Leonardo board, the quickstart tutorial I followed wouldn’t build with an error saying it’s unable to find the USB serial port.
I’ve been able to upload to my Arduboy before with this cord but today it seems like the computer is having a hard time sensing the USB. I was even having trouble uploading with the Arduino app today.
First thing tomorrow I’ll be replacing the cord and then I’ll see if there is any workaround to get build working in Xcode. Maybe tryout a different IDE. I might have to settle with my fallback app Sublime Text but that is just a text editor.
Does anyone have any experience getting a more modern IDE to work with the Arduboy? Is something with all my favorite features in the pipeline? With maybe an ETA?
I’m new to electronics and Arduino but I do code so I’ll share anything I learn about getting alternative IDEs working.
