I love your program and appreciate the work you have done very much!
I just wanted to mention that I had a difficult time setting up Ardublock, because I did not realize that the folder names were case sensitive.
I think if you stress in the instructions that all the folders must be labelled with the proper capitalization, people will find this is actually very easy to install.
Thank you again for your work!
sorry but i have trouble to install ardublock!can you please help me?
my system runs at windows
Thank you Lee, the post has been changed.
I try to copy in /usr/share/arduino …
thanks a lot
i wanted to know is htis software easy to use than miniblogs arduino software.
Very nice,now I can teach grade 7 student Arduino without any problem.
Great idea, thanks for making it free, but how do I get it to work with Windows?
Hi, I tried downloading the application but it does not seem to work. Is there anything else that I can do to make it work? I would really love to have this program in my lappy. Thanks much
Works with windows 7, this works great! its so easy now.
I installed the software as per instructions and does not work. Any idea how to solve it please?
Ok I solved the problem, I can load Ardublock. It looks great.
Do you have an english tutorial?
How did you solve it? I’ve installed on a Mac per instructions and it’s not showing up.
Could you check the path again? I understand the path is a bit headache to get right… 🙁 Will work on an installer soon.
Oh, I’ve checked the path a whole bunch of times and tried several variations. It’s just not loading.
This is a work of art… Absolutley brilliant. Simple to use – and it looks superb.
i had issues with arduino when running as normal user on my ubuntusystem. it works with rootpermission thou. but then i had to put the file here: ‘/root/sketchbook/tools/ArduBlockTool/tool’ and run arduino as root. its propably not a good idea to do this – but – i dont care. THANKS FOR THE SOFT!!!
I am an electrical engineer and work as a teacher in a technical school for electronics. We have a team that participates in robotics competitions and assists middle schools in creating robotics clubs. Our students work as monitors of robotics in these schools. We are starting to work with Arduino and we will work with the children using Ardublock. I would like to keep in touch with you to receive teaching materials and updates of this teaching tool.
City :Novo Hamburgo
State :Rio Grande do Sul
wow nice program and so easy setup, thanks guys.
I’m trying to use variables, but Ardublock does not appear to declare the variable type? Is there another block that I’m missing?
How do I delete a block? There doesn’t seem to be any way to do that.
This is a very cumbersome program. First, if I want to change a block, there is no way to delete. Second, if I save, Ardublock starts in the program that I saved and there is no way to clear the screen. Also, the code doesn’t show for editing. I’m running Windows Vista.
Please respond with answers. I’d like to use your program.
Very nice program. Now it will be very easy for even non-programmers like 6-7th grade students to create projects using Arduino.
Thanks! That’s our target! 🙂
For the love of God, keep writing these arelicts.
i tried copying the ardublock file into the tools directory inside the arduino base folder, the very same folder where arduino is installed.
My Arduino is installed in c: drive C:\arduino-1.0.1
I installed Ardublock in C:\arduino-1.0.1\tools\ArduBlockTool\tool\ardublock-all.jar
The ardublock doesn’t show up?
mine does the same thing
you can help my make program ardublock for sensor HC-SR04 with newping.h n ultrasonic.h?
I am teacher in technology in France, with pupils 15 years old.
It is their first programm.
I need a evolution of Ardublock.
I would like to have a block, in witch I could put the pah of a “librairy”.
In this librairy, I could put variable, subroutine…
The pupil will only do the “main programm”, and do the difference beetween “if, do , while…”
This sounds interesting. Can you elaborate?
I have done a program for robot from Seed Studio:
of course there are many blocks, but not too much.
My first problem was:
How to declare a variable wich is an output of the microcontroler.
Because it’s more easier to programm with variable, than with bit 1 or 0.
I have done like this :
pinMode( 1 , OUTPUT);
digitalWrite( 1 , LOW );
_ABVAR_1_LED = 1 ;
Fist variable LED, on PIN 1 as OUTPUT
_ABVAR_2_switch = 7 ;
Secon variable switch, on PIN 2 as INPUT ( after a reset)
My second problem
How to have different speed for the motor
With delay and a variable, it’s not difficult.
What I need
Next, I give to my student, the name of the variable as left_motor, right_motor, spedd for each motor…;
They will do only the main programm. For beginner, it will be perfect.
I need a block,where I put they path where are a file witch contain the variable, subroutine, init Input / Output…
It could bee sommething as #include “path of the file”, “name of the file.”
This will be very useful.
I will send you the ardublock programm for this robot from Seeed Studio
I am having a hell of a time getting this to work for me. I’ve done 5 installations, triple checked the spelling of the files/folders, I mean it just won’t show up in the Arduino IDE!
My OS is Ubuntu13.04 (64-bit) & Linux Mint 15 (32-bit). I cannot get ArduBlock to run on either of them. After crefully going over your instructions half a dozen times, I cannot figure out why ArduBlock will not appear under Tools. Help!!!
I downloaded Ardublock last night and I had it up an running in minutes. This is a good tool, however the lacking of a delete block function makes it difficult to work with, specially when you plan to use it with kids, where they want to explore. So I wonder if there are any plans to add this functionality in the future?
You’re back! great to see the website again – we just started using Ardublocks and are hoping that it will continue to be supported!
Thanks! I’d love to learn more about your parctice!
Anyone else not having trouble getting this working in the current version of the Arduino IDE?
I’ve copied as per the instructions and it wont come up.
I had it come up when I installed it under c:\program files(x86)\tools\ArduBlockTool/tool.
Anyone else find this?
yes, the same for me (win7 64b pro), just needed to copy the files under C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\tools\ArduBlockTool\tool
No need to change the path in the preferences… surprising… but it is working. Great tool!!! thanks a lot
in fact, it was still not working, error that it could not find the libraries.
So what worked: in the properties, set the following path (without mentioning the .jar file in the path) C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\tools\ArduBlockTool\tool
now working. Great program can now my boy playing with it! Thanks
thank you for your software, it makes programming easy for me now

i want use your program to finish my project it is difficult to write code thank you all
Hi this is my first time to learn with arduino, and hope to get help here.
Thank you for this developer interface, I am going to use it with the Boys/Girls Club locally. I just guessed that I had to create the folder structure shown in the instructions for the destination of the download…and it came up in “Tools”. In one of your videos I see many more libraries in the left pane than I have. How do I get those and load them? Do you have a method of accepting donations? I like this and want to see more.
Is there a way to make the interface larger? I am using a high resolution monitor and everything is just so small. Thank you
I have a problem with Ardublock.
I followed the Arduino installation do the installation ardublock in windows 10 and only appears to me the ardublock the first time, then get out of the Arduino and never have access to ardublock, anyone know how I can solve the problem?
