Erel has just released his free development package for Arduino. https://www.b4x.com/b4r.html

 

An interesting video demonstration of his suite of packages.

So it uses "BASIC" instead of C/C++?

That is what is apparently written on the tin.

It looks like more Visual Basic that BASICA...

 

I hope to make it into a new TAFE course on Android apps development, new intake next month I hope.

See what they use, I have been itching to get B4A.

Used Basic For Android a couple years ago. Was pretty nice. Think there's any way I could find another Android project? I kept putting semicolons where they don't belong. They have a user forum with helpful people.

The largest known prime number: 282589933-1

It's easy to stop breaking the 10th commandment! Break the 8th instead.

I do that a lot in Python (usually it doesn't actually mind). I also find myself wrapping () around the conditions in if statements when I don't need to.

 

While I loved B4A to play with writing Android apps, as it was so easy, the appeal there was simply because it was the best alternative. Anyt other form of android programming was pretty "heavy". But I'm not sure if they are going to find the same for AVR programming. Asm/C/C++/("Arduino"?) seem like the natural languages to use so it could be a tricky "sell".

 

OTOH I could see that if you use the B4A variant of Basic in other realms then being able to apply the same knowledge to programming micros/Arduinos could be a nice touch.

Asm/C/C++/("Arduino"?)

 And let's not forget BASCOM.........there is already a great BASIC compiler/IDE around. (edited on a real computer)
