CodeBlocks Arduino Edition is a customized distribution of the open-source Code::Blocks IDE which I enhanced for Arduino software development. It provides more demanding software developers with a more powerful IDE for writing,  navigating around, building and managing source codes for Arduino development. By adding a dedicated project wizard, it’s very easy create an Arduino project that is ready to be built. The distribution integrates Arduino 1.0 core files, libraries, toolchains, firmware downloader, serial terminal and some other useful utilities.



  1. Arduino project wizard
  2. simplified UI appearance of CodeBlocks IDE
