Linux Users:

  • Ubuntu/Debian users may need to add own “username” to the “dialout” group if they are not “root”, doing this issuing a sudo usermod -a -G dialout yourusername.
  • Install “udev” rules file 99-platformio-udev.rules (an instruction is located in the file).
  • Raspberry Pi users, please read this article Enable serial port on Raspberry Pi.

Windows Users: Please check that you have correctly installed USB driver from board manufacturer


Name Description
Framework arduino Arduino Wiring-based Framework allows writing cross-platform software to control devices attached to a wide range of Arduino boards to create all kinds of creative coding, interactive objects, spaces or physical experiences.
Framework energia Energia Wiring-based framework enables pretty much anyone to start easily creating microcontroller-based projects and applications. Its easy-to-use libraries and functions provide developers of all experience levels to start blinking LEDs, buzzing buzzers and sensing sensors more quickly than ever before.
