Arduino enthusiasts that have been using the new online Arduino Web Editor, might be pleased to know that Arduino have today announced a new update which has added the ability to share your Arduino Sketches with others.
The latest update to the Arduino Web Editor now creates a unique URL in a similar way to that used by Google for its Docs. Enabling users to then share the URL with others who might be interested in their Arduino Sketch.
The link provides a number of options for recipients including the ability to see the code, add it to their Sketchbook in the Cloud or download it depending on their needs. The Arduino blog explains a little more.
If you write a tutorial on Project Hub and add the link in the Software section, your code will be embedded and will always be up-to-date. We envision the Arduino Sketch as the unit that includes everything you need to bring an idea to life. When someone shares a sketch with you, you’ll now have access both to the code, the layout for the electronics, and the full tutorial (when available). This will allow you to have all the necessary information to build on top of the original project, making it your own.
Arduino Web Editor is designed to take the headache out of the development process: your Sketchbook is in the Cloud, available from any device and backed up. Simply save a .ZIP file of your local one and import it in a click.Meaning, you don’t need to install any additional cores for Arduino and Genuino boards, just install a simple agent, plug your board in and we’ll set it up for you. We made the Serial Monitor pretty robust, and of course, you can finally enjoy a dark theme for your IDE.
