What do you like best?

Arduino IDE is an IDE very similar to Eclipse IDE ideal to develop code for Arduino boards. The best thing is that you have a package manager to link with the dependencies in a very easy way, saving you the need to go looking for the packages in different repositories. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only drawback is that it is very slow loading the codes, and in many cases you have to restart the application to get the load done correctly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Arduino IDE works on almost all platforms, and since it includes the license plate drivers, you can load the codes on the development boards from any operating system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Its ideally the best IDE for IoT Programing because it comes with a support of wide range of microcontrollers. You and easily add the new library support from the preferences to your sketch. Its very much easy for the beginner to start with a default sketch It also has a various example sketch ready to be directly dumped to the controller board.

The best part is we can manage the boards from the board manager and we can also verify the sketch for errors before uploading it. It also provides support for the serial communication with the controller board. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It does not support wide range of programming language, Sometimes when we are trying to upload the code very frequently it shows unnecessary error that com port is busy. There is no inbuilt code suggestion module in this IDE.

We can not debugger the code line by line. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been a very useful tool for me in many of my IoT project where It was easy for me to verify my sketch before uploading to the controller board. I was easily able to add the new controller board(Eso8266, Esp32) to the IDE for use. Adding new library support to the Sketch was also easy from the library manager.

What do you like best?

Its interface is quite simple, which allows me to use it without any type of problem, the fact that it can code everything in a quite simple way compared to how it was done with other IDE's is something of great help to make my applications of In a much more fluid way, the amount of information and documentation that is obtained is something quite useful at the moment of starting in the development of the activities, since it is of great help to learn to use the entire application in a quite practical and simple way In the same way, this is something of great help when having to solve any type of problem that may arise while using the application, the fact that it supports a large number of microcontrollers and not exclusively ARDUINO type cards results from great help to make a lot of electronic developments for my university in a much faster and easier way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It has little information regarding the coding language, as it is not a formal programming language, so accessing information and formal support of the language is quite problematic, apart from that I have no other type of complaint about the use of this application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been helping me to learn more about the world of microcontrollers at the university, by allowing me to program in a much easier and more practical way a large number of electronic devices through the ARDUINO cards, which has been of great help to carry out a great variety of applications in a much more practical way.

The example sketches included with the package really helps a lot.

And also it is really easy to add new libraries from internet.

And the best thing is there are very few things one needs to learn in this IDE, you get used to it real quick. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The downside is the COM port selection process. It always creates havoc , sometimes for no reason at all.

Sometimes it has some issues with the newly added libraries.

I would strongly recommend a portal where we can get all the files to patch up with IDE directly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Mi piace moltissimo Arduino IDE perché è un'interfaccia molto amichevole e facile da capire, ha diversi esempi di base di programmazione in linguaggio C di default, questo aiuta molto l'utente durante la programmazione di periferiche nella scheda Arduino. Arduino IDE ha ottimi strumenti in cui possiamo scegliere la porta seriale e la velocità con cui vogliamo lavorare. Quando si programma il programma ti dice quali linee di codici sono sbagliate, questo può aiutarci molto in programmi molto lunghi. Il sistema di colori nelle linee di codici è molto comprensibile per l'utente. Uno strumento molto utile è il monitor seriale, dove possiamo vedere sul nostro schermo gli ingressi e le uscite digitali e analogici del programma che stiamo facendo, è molto utile avere dati reali sulla nostra programmazione. Un altro ottimo punto è includere le librerie nell'IDE di Arduino. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Non mi piace il fatto che Arduino IDE non abbia adattamenti online, sarebbe bello programmare dal cloud. A volte durante la compilazione di un programma molto esteso è difficile trovare l'errore poiché Arduino IDE non cerca specificamente l'errore. Il software presenta alcuni difetti quando si tratta di collegarsi con la scheda fisica Arduino e questo genera problemi durante la compilazione del programma. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Con questo software ho creato molti programmi per i miei studi e il mio lavoro, con questa piattaforma sono stato in grado di creare programmi che funzionano solo virtualmente e / o fisicamente. Dato che funziona sulla programmazione in linguaggio C è molto semplice, questo mi ha aiutato a creare numerosi progetti in breve tempo. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Consiglio a tutti gli utenti IDE di Arduino che quando il programma non carica la sua scheda Arduino si collega e scollega il cavo dalla porta seriale, possono anche cambiare la configurazione interna della porta da Windows in Gestione dispositivi.

Questo programma è eccellente per realizzare piccoli progetti di robotica, quindi consiglio di usarlo per questi casi, Arduino IDE è un eccellente compilatore per questo tipo di progetti. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Apart from its superb features like Low cost, Low system Requirement, the biggest plus in using Arduino is that the its quite easy to learn Arduino Programming. The code to be written is in simple C/C++ language which makes it easy to use for even beginners with basic C background. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is a scope for few hardware modifications according to me. The socket for inserting the chord is too tight and I have seen the sockets being ripped off along with the chords which makes the Arduino Board useless with no socket. Other than that I never faced any issue regarding the IDE or Software part. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is great to use Arduino IDE because it is an excellent software to do C programming, the interface is very friendly and easy to use. The tools are good because it has options like the serial monitor because with this tool I can see in real time what I am programming. It's great to be able to search for keywords in this compiler, since when programming many lines of code I always get lost. Another very good point is to include libraries is very easy in Arduino IDE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The software has certain failures when it comes to linking with the Arduino physical card, and this creates problems when compiling the program. I don't like that it doesn't have options integrated to the internet since it would be great to be able to compile files directly from the web. The distinction between lines of codes can be very confusing because it does not have good signaling, it would be good to put colors to the program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend all Arduino users to use this platform to make quick projects for work or for the university as it falls perfectly to create prototypes. I also recommend that you join 3D printing technology with Arduino to do amazing things. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this software I have been able to compile many codes on different Arduino boards, since it is very easy to use.

I like Arduino IDE very much because it is a very friendly and easy to understand interface, it has several basic examples of programming in C language by default, this helps the user a lot when programming peripherals in the Arduino card. Arduino IDE has very good tools where we can choose the serial port and the speed with which we want to work. When programming the program tells you which lines of codes are wrong, this can help us a lot in very long schedules. The system of colors in the lines of codes is very understandable to the user. A very useful tool is the serial monitor, where we can see on our screen the digital and analog inputs and outputs of the program we are doing, it is very useful to have real data of our programming. Another very good point is to include libraries is very easy in Arduino IDE. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that Arduino IDE does not have online adaptations, it would be great to program from the cloud. Sometimes when compiling a very extensive program it is difficult to find the error since Arduino IDE does not specifically look for the error. The software has certain faults when it comes to linking with the Arduino physical card, and this generates problems when compiling the program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend to all Arduino IDE users that when the program does not load its Arduino board connect and disconnect the cable from the serial port, they can also change the internal configuration of the port from Windows in device manager.

This program is excellent for making small robotics projects, so I recommend using it for these cases, Arduino IDE is an excellent compiler for this type of projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this software I have created many programs for my studies and work, with this platform I have been able to create programs that only work virtually and / or physically. Since it works on C language programming is very easy, this has helped me to create numerous projects in a short time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have used the Arduino Uno extensively as my choice of microcontroller and it is a good all-purpose board that has enough features for a beginner to get started with. Its biggest advantage is that we connect the board to the computer via a USB cable which does a dual purpose of supplying power and acting as a Serial port to interface the Arduino and the computer. Lot of extra Add-on hardware is built for Uno. Special hardware is available for Internet, Bluetooth, Motor control etc. It is value for money when compared to its pricing.
