Use External Editor
Some guy this Arduino IDE’s editing interface is no so friendly, non-standard indentation, no syntax highlighting, no Autocomplete and so on. In short, if you’ve used other excellent editor such as emacs, vim, even notepad++, you must be very unhappy about Arduino’s editing interface.
But, you can use an external editor, open Arduino IDE, click File -> Preferences, choose Use external editor:

The following is my favorite editor: Vim, is it more beautiful than Arduino IDE?
Help us make it better
Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:
- Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
- Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
- Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.
An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.
