Arduino Studio Alternatives and Similar Software

Arduino Studio is a programming environment for the programming language of the same name, Arduino. Free and open source, it is available on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Arduino Studio has not been in development since 2015, the last time a commit was made to the software. In its wake, there are several open source alternatives to Arduino Studio that are still in active development. These integrated development environments feature support for either Arduino itself or similar programming languages.

The list of alternatives was last updated: 7/15/2019 2:35:00 PM
Arduino Studio is discontinued
Last commit to the project was made in 2015.

  • LabsLand

    LabsLand connects schools and universities with real laboratories available somewhere else on the Internet. A real laboratory can be a small arduino-powered robot in Spain, a kinematics setup in Brazil or a radioactivity testing lab in Australia. They are real laboratories, not simulations: the laboratories are physically there, and students from these schools and universities access them.

  • B4R

    B4R is a 100% free development tool for native Arduino solutions. B4R follows the same concepts of the other B4X tools, providing a simple and powerful development tool. Compiled apps run on Arduino compatible boards. B4R, B4A, B4J and B4i together make the best development solution for the Internet of Things (IoT).

  • embedXcode

    embedXcode is a template for Xcode. It eases development for the most popular embedded computing boards. After having played with embedded computing platforms for a while, I was looking for one single IDE and a better one. Because I'm a Mac user, I designed embedXcode, a template for Xcode, the free and standard IDE on Mac. embedXcode supports the most popular boards based on the Wiring / Arduino framework and on the mbed framework.

    UECIDE is aiming to be a generic IDE based on the Arduino IDE which can easily support ALL the available boards. It does this by not supporting any boards directly but providing a framework where a board developer or fanatical group can simply drop in the definitions for the boards and the chip on the boards without having to make any modifications to how the IDE works. Much of the original Arduino IDE code has been ripped out and replaced with custom code that is aimed at being 100% generic.
