How To Use The New 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 liked what we saw. When Arduino announced that 2.0 was moving to a stable release, we just had to take it out for another round.

Arduino IDE 2.0 brings a number of improvements over the original IDE. Above all, an updated user interface. Here are a few more end-user improvements.

The Arduino IDE 2.0 introduces automatic code completion, which is useful when entering large chunks of code. As we type, the IDE will suggest possible keywords/commands that we can use. This feature has been standard in many other IDEs and is a welcome addition to Arduino IDE 2.0.

If you like your code editors dark, then Arduino IDE 2.0 has a plethora of themes to choose from.

Finally the Serial Plotter has received an update and now it looks stunning. The serial plotter is useful for measuring and interpreting analog signals and voltages.
