cuwire - a developing alternative to the Arduino IDE

Although the Arduino IDE that we know and love has evolved over time, other enthusiasts with experience of other platforms often look for alternative means of programming their Arduino. In some cases they even create their own replacements, and one example of this is cuwire by Ivan Baktsheev.

This comprises of two parts - a command-line tool to build and upload firmward to the board, along with act as a serial monitor - and a full IDE replacement in the form of a Brackets (open-source text editor) plug-in that is cosmetically pleasing and ripe for modification.

The entire project is open-source, so visit the github to get started. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
