Picture of Integrate Ardublock with Arduino IDE
Hello friends!!!!!!!!!!

Programming with C is not always the easy job for all those non-programmer Arduino enthusiasts but now for their ease the ‘ArduBlock’ a graphical, block-based programming language is available.
We have already seen a number of graphical, block-based programming languages in our time such as Scratch, OpenBlocks but what keep’s it apart from other’s is that it uses the Arduino IDE alone for its functionality and gets well integrated to it, so everything possible in C with an Arduino should be possible with ArduBlock.

Step 1: Install Arduino IDE

Download any version of Arduino IDE (here i'm using ver1.0.5) and install it on computer (executable arduino installer is available,so you no need to unzip and copying files)

You can find a desktop shortcut as "Arduino"

Step 2: Download Ardublock

Use this link to download  ardublock-all.jar

http://download1us.softpedia.com/dl/6200a2d98a8df7e8fcd3c120668daa45/51c06f70/100229541/software/programming/ardublock-all-20130607.jar

Rename ardublock-all-20130607.jar to ardublock-all.jar and copy this file.

Step 3: Integrate

1.Now open "My documents" and create new folder as "Arduino".
2.Open "Arduino" folder and create new folder as "tools".
3.Open "tools"  folder and create new folder as "ArduBlockTool".
4. Open "ArduBlockTool" folder and create new folder as "tool".
5.Open "tool" and paste "ardublock-all.jar" here.

Step 4: Change sketchbook location

Now open Arduino IDE and press ctrl+,(comma) then a prereferences window will open here you will find Sketchbook location and change sketchbook location to E:\Documents\Arduino\tools\ArduBlockTool\tool\ardublock-all.jar then press "OK".

Note: Location is deponds upon where you have ardublock-all.jar


Step 5: Restart Arduino IDE and Done

big thx.bro

The reason the Mac was so well received was the software interface to hardware. I do not like programming at all! Arduino is fabulous this looks helpful any other ideas or interface out ?

How can I transfer code already written in the arduino IDE into ardublock?

Rifath (author)  killercatfish3 months ago

No, You can't do like that, You can only transfer the ardublock code to arduino ide's .ino file.

Hmm, thats what I thought. I think I may go with Modk.it with my students. I know it costs some money, but it really does work right away and simple.

1.Go to http://www.mediafire.com/download/2piif78i552vkn9/... and download Arduino.zip

2.Unzip the Arduino folder from Arduino.zip anywhere in your PC.

3.Mow go to "My Documents" in your PC.

4.You will find a folder called Arduino and delete that folder.

5.Now copy the Arduino folder (not Aruino.zip) you have downloaded to "My Documents" of your PC.

6.Now open your Arduino software.

You will definitely find Ardublock

Hi there... Thanks for the super clear write up. I have followed your steps exactly but can't get ardublock to show up under the tools menu. I tried re-starting arduino ide, made sure the syntax (capital letters, etc) were all right but no dice. suggestions?
