What a surprise I have today when I went to download the latest version of the Arduino IDE. Now, if you want to create apps for Arduino, in addition to the classic IDE (Windows app), we also have a version that takes advantage of all the benefits of Windows 10.
Well, almost all Windows 10 features. Actually what you see here is an excellent example on how to use Desktop App Converter (link). This tool allows us to start from a classic Windows app and create a package so it can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store and released as a Windows 10 App.
On MSDN, we can find an excellent group of articles describing how the Desktop Bridge works. Scott Hanselman has also written an amazing post where he explains the necessary step by step on how an app from Visual Basic 6 using this technology. In the references section, I left links about this.
With respect to Arduino Web Editor… because the truth is that a post deserves apart. It is not “click and go”, but it has a little work of by means to run. Today already I can’t finish the post, so I leave it for another shot.
