Programming Croduino Basic2 PB from Arduino IDE

Your CroduinoBasic2 has arrived and now it is time to start programming! The following instructions refer to the Croduino Basic2 PB version of the Croduino Basic2 board which has a label "Croduino Basic2 PB" on the back, as seen in the picture:

If you are planning on using your old Croduino after these changes in the Arduino IDE, make sure to check the note at the bottom of this text.

Step 1: Driver installation

If you have not used our boards so far, first you will have to install the drivers for CP2102.. Find the instructions here.

Step 2: Arduino IDE installation

Likewise, if you have not used Arduino IDE so far, you will have to install it too. Find the instructions here.

Step 3: Adding URLs to Arduino IDE

You will now need to add the URLs that Arduino Boards Manager will use. Click on File-> Preferences (Ctrl +,) and click on the icon at the bottom of the "Additional Boards Manager URLs".

Enter the following two links in the menu that has opened. Separate them using Enter(new line) as in the picture.

https://downloads.arduino.cc/packages/package_avr_3.6.0_index.json
https://e-radionicacom.github.io/Croduino-boards-for-Arduino-IDE-board-manager/package_e-radionica.com_index.json

Step 4: Installation via Boards Manager

Open the Boards Manager by clicking Tools->Boards->Boards Manager.

Install "Arduino AVR Boards" by Arduino, version 1.6.207. This might take a few minutes.

After that, type "croduino" in the search engine. The "Croduino Basic2 PB" by e-radionica.com package will appear. Select and install it.

Step 5: Use!

That is it! It is still left to select a Croduino board. Select it by clicking Tools-> Board-> Croduino Basic2 PB.

Select the serial port to which Croduino is connected and you are ready for the upload!

NOTE: If you are using Croduino Basic2 (without PB tag)

If you have the standard Croduino Basic2 which you are planning to use with Arduino IDE, you should change only one option in the Arduino IDE in order for the upload to be successful. Under Tools->Board->Processor select ATmega328P (Old Bootloader). The board remains Arduino Nano!
