UECIDE on german Make magazine

Salut Matt, on the german Make magazine, the top article was about 24 free IDE for arduino and others. UECIDE was listed with these notes:

  • it is not possible to select all boards of a kind like selectng all Arduino boards and they write that it takes a lot of clicks to select all boards
  • plugin manager comes up with a random list of items that require to click the refresh button before the real state is shown (I got used to this but should be easy to fix by doing a refresh at the start of the plugin manager)
  • no autocompletion in the editor
  • significant performance gain over arduinoIDE due to cahced compiled libraries

All in all they write that once you get used to UECIDE it is more comfortable than Arduino IDE

Ciao, Mathias

Yeah, I need to re-write the plugin manager so that you can select multiple boards in the tree. Or I may just make some "meta" packages that group boards together. That's packages that don't have anything in them, but just have a whole bunch of boards as dependencies - install the package and it causes the dependent boards to install automatically.

  • plugin manager comes up with a random list of items that require to click the refresh button before the real state is shown (I got used to this but should be easy to fix by doing a refresh at the start of the plugin manager)

Already fixed in the next release.

  • no autocompletion in the editor

A common request, but something that, although I have tried to implement, has never worked.

  • significant performance gain over arduinoIDE due to cahced compiled libraries

Of course :) One of the main things I implemented.

Great to see people finding UECIDE and, on the whole, liking it.
