Arduino IDE 2.0

How to use Arduino IDE 2.0

The Arduino IDE 2.0 has been in beta since early 2021, and in those early days, we took it for a test drive and were impressed with what we saw. When the Arduino announced that 2.0 had been ported to a stable version, we just had to take it out for another cycle.

Arduino IDE 2.0 brings a number of improvements to the original IDE. Most notably, an updated user interface. Here are some additional improvements for the end user.

The Arduino IDE 2.0 offers code autocompletion, which is useful when writing large sections of code. As we type, the IDE suggests potential keywords/commands that we can use. This feature has been standard on many other IDEs, and is a welcome addition to the Arduino IDE 2.0.

If you like your code editors dark, the Arduino IDE 2.0 has a large number of themes to choose from.

Found in File >> Preferences menu. Change the theme to your liking and every aspect of the editor will meet your demand.

Finally, Serial Plotter has received an update and now looks amazing. A serial plotter is useful for measuring and interpreting analog signals and voltages.
