Codebender on a Chromebook connected to an Arduino project.

I own a Chromebook Pixel. It’s light and convenient, and sometimes it can be a lot handier than lugging around a full laptop. However it’s not my main machine, because there are some things it just can’t do.

Programming an Arduino Uno from a Chromebook using Codebender.

Until today one of those things was to program an Arduino board, and as you might imagine that’s something I need to do quite a bit.

Codebender is an online web-based development environment for the Arduino that runs in your browser. It currently supports 82 different Arduino compatible boards out of the box, and from today it also runs on Chromebooks.

Ahead of today’s announcement at MakerCon we talked to Vasilis Georgitzikis — CEO and one of the founders of Codebender — about Codebender and what they had to do to add support for programming the Arduino using a Chromebook.

To get the environment up and running you’ll need to update your Chromebook to v42 if you haven’t already done that and install the new Codebender application. From there it should be more-or-less like using the Arduino IDE on your normal laptop.

    Personally, I use Chromeduino & AVRChick, which together allow for offline programming and loading to the board. I’m not sure how wide compatability is, but I’ve had not issues with my UNO. Does Codebender have any features that would convince me to swtich? Offline use seems to me to be a pretty big advantage.

    I use codebender cause I can keep everything on the cloud( Feeling safe to have my work there). More, it has all the libraries I need and they work, so I don’t have to go searching on the web, download and fix them if not working. It’s like asking why to switch from MS office to Google Drive.
