Facilino Translate

In this new version of Facilino, we have develop a translation tool for Facilino, available online:

https://roboticafacil.es/facilino/blockly/FacilinoTranslate.html

We would like to ask for your collaboration to translate Facilino in many other languages. If you want to collaborate, please send and e-mail to soporte@roboticafacil.es.

All contributors will be acknowledge in Facilino credits for their unvaluable collaboration and obviously many other users will be please to use this tool in their own native language!

Facilino MyBlocks

We have just create an entry blog in DYOR website with all basic information to start working with Facilino MyBlocks.

http://dyor.roboticafacil.es/facilino-myblocks/

It’s a tool to create your own Facilino blocks that will let you extend Facilino features.

Any contribution, can be shared with  “MyBlocks” workgroup that everyone can access from ‘My Account’.

All contributions might be examined to be incorporated into Facilino in future released and authors will be acknowledge.

Facilino web

We have created an online/offline Facilino code generation tool. It can be used in any platform, because i’ts a web-based application (Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, iOS, etc.) to generate Arduino code. It requires a working Arduino IDE (or similar) to actually compile the code. There’s a copy & paste utility. It can be accessed online (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) and offline (only works with Firefox).

Facilino 1.1.0

New sensors and features.
Documentation examples in Spanish, English and Catalan.
