The first step to test CB4A is downloading it from our site. You need to register (it's free) before to be able to get the software. Once you have downloaded the .zip file, you must unzip it into a folder in your hard disk drive (the desktop, for example); where the file codebricks-all.jar will appear. This is the program you will have to install within your arduino IDE.
Unfortunately, the Arduino IDE has no Plugin installation wizard like the one used with the libraries, so you will need to create the folders manually if they still don't exist, and finally, copy the previously related .jar file into them. So, in sum, we will follow the steps below:
- Download the software at the bottom of this entry.
- Unzip the file to get codebriks-all.jar
- Locate the Arduino Working folder. It is usually a folder named Arduino in the user's documents folder. To be sure about this, we can open the Arduino IDE, and go to File->Settings(Preferences) and there it appears as Project Location.
- Create a folder named tools (in lowercase) if it does not already exist.
- Whitin tools, create a new folder named CodeBricksTool.
- Whitin CodeBricksTool create a folder named tool (in lowercase).
- Copy codebricks-all.jar into this last folder (Arduino/tools/CodeBricksTool/tool/codebricks-all.jar).
The next time we launch the Arduino Ide, we will see Codebricks option under Tools menu; and it will be ready to use.
