Improved compilation of free online Arduino IDE plans

The official Arduino development team this week announced improvements they have made to the conditions for compiling a free plan in the online Arduino IDE. The Arduino Cloud Editor is an online alternative to the popular Arduino IDE that does not require installation and includes all the most popular libraries to help you create projects. To help meet the different needs of developers, enthusiasts, and hobbyists, the Arduino cloud service offers a variety of plans to meet different needs.

One of the free plan’s current limitations was a limit of no more than 200 seconds of compilation time per day. The Arduino team has now implemented a base number of compiles rather than time, providing 25 successful compiles with the free plan instead of the traditional 200 seconds of successful compiles per day. Although this compilation limitation does not apply to sketches using the IoT cloud agent.

Arduino IDE Online Builds

“Online interactive development environments (IDEs) have become widespread in recent years. Traditionally, local IDEs have been considered the best programming tools because they were generally faster than their online counterparts. But the emergence of new web programming environments and the standardization of highspeed Internet connections have improved the performance of interactive editors using browsers. The average compilation time for a sketch is about 10 seconds, so the new limit of 25 compilations will be an effective improvement for most users. The policy of counting only successful compilations will still be in effect, so no typos or other programming errors will violate the constraint.”

“The online editor supports all Arduino boards and other thirdparty hardware based on ESP32 and ESP8266. Each of these boards have different processors with different capabilities, and it was a fact that compiling for the lower processors was much faster than compiling for the latest and highest performing ones. In addition, you can harness the full potential of the Arduino IoT Cloud by creating software for connected devices that you can control with customizable control panels and with the ability to update device software remotely.”
