Tutorial 11: Upload a Sketch from the Terminal
Let's face it: the Arduino IDE is not the best IDE out there. One issue I have with the IDE is that you can't accordion the functions you write, making it tedious to work with larger sketches you want to upload. It's also a bit of a problem when your Arduino is connected to a remote computer, like a Raspberry Pi. Instead of running a full blown VNC server, wouldn't it be convenient if we could just quickly make adjustments via SSH?
In this tutorial I show you how to compile and upload Arduino sketches from the Terminal. Terminal is available on Mac and Linux computers, including the Raspberry Pi. I hope you find this one interesting!
