Arduino has finally released the Alpha version of the new CLI.
Mugsy currently uses Ino(http://inotool.org/) to programmatically upload scripts to the Arduino. Although I love the way it works, it is no longer supported and I’ve been looking for an alternative for a while. I’ve dabbled with Platform IO a bit but I’ve never been really happy with it.
I’m going to start diving into the new CLI this eve but wanted to send out the call for anyone else who had some spare brain cycles and wanted to check it out as well.
I’m mostly interested in upload speed, as anything being pushed to the Arduino would usually be pre-compiled.
For those who are new to some of this and wondering what the CLI does: It allows us to compile/upload/etc scripts directly to the Arduino through the terminal or more importantly, programmatically. A very basic example would be:
User Clicks on Grinder Test Link-> Link Calls Python Script -> Python Script Calls Arduino CLI-> CLI Uploads Grinder Test Script to Arduino-> Grindy Grindy Grindy
Hope all is well!
