Arduino Pro IDE

Status: Finished
October 22, 2019
Released last October at the 2019 Maker Faire Rome, the Arduino Pro IDE is based on Eclipse Theia. The classic Arduino command line interface (CLI) still provides all the main Arduino features, but now runs in deamon mode.

The new IDE is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux64.

At the time of writing, the Arduino Pro IDE was at version 0.0.1-alpha-preview which suggests that most users better wait a few releases before downloading and installing the new IDE. Those who prefer to build the IDE themselves from the source code will have to wait too.

Here is a video showing our first impressions of the new IDE.
