Minibloq: New graphical programming for Arduino, Multiplo and robotics
April 15, 2011
I'm working on an new graphical programming environment for Arduino, physical computing devices and robots. It's called Minibloq and, although it's not finished yet, it's possible to see something here:
- Runs completely offline and it's portable (can execute from a pendrive).
- It's fast (C++ native program).
- Really generates C/C++ code, compiles it and sends it to the board's flash, just with one click.
- Wine compatible: It even runs on an OLPC XO (there are videos on the website).
- Modern GUI, with dockable panes, zoom, key navigation, etc..
- Made with open source tools (basically wxWidgets, MinGW, Code::Blocks, Inkscape...)
- Once finished the v1.0 it will become open source (MIT like license, with just a limitation: non-military use).
I'm trying to finish a first public version (v0.4) for the end of the next month (waiting for a possible kickstarter one-month campaign).
Feedback is welcome! Here is a small screenshoot (a blink program):
Ah, and here are examples:
