What is Maker Playground?

Maker Playground, the complete embedded system, IoT development software. Peripheral's behavior studies, circuit wiring diagram, instruction designing and uploading the finish instruction to the device are done in just one. Maker Playground uses diagram to define device's behavior, then the source code and circuit wiring diagram will be generated. Many embedded controllers are support such as Arduino (AVR), ESP8266 & ESP32 based platforms and Raspberry Pi.


Download Maker Playground software from www.makerplayground.io For further installation instruction, click the link below.

Start Maker Playground within 5 Min.

1. Choose platform and controller. For example; Arduino (AVR8) and Arduino UNO board.

2. Choose peripheral from Device Explorer tab by clicking + at the top right to add the peripheral. For example; LED peripheral will be added and the LED will be appear in the circuit diagram pane.

Warning sign will appear besides the device tab while device's configuration parameter is not complete.

3. Device's port connection can be configured under Device Configuration tab. The port can be selected by user or using Auto Select for optimum selection. The warning sign besides the device tab will disappear after the device's port is selected.

Interactive mode supports commanding and retrieving data from any type of peripherals. This is able to safe time for installing libraries, coding, uploading software and serial monitoring.

For further instruction for Interactive Mode, please visit the link below.

6. Next, creating sample project of LED blinking. The LED will be ON-OFF every 1 second continuously. Using Diagram tab to define instruction for the device. Click Add Scene to add new Scene Block and click LED1.

7. Add another scene block, Add LED1 and configure LED1's action in this scene to be OFF as shown.

The complete diagram will be shown below.

8. Add and place delay block among scene1 and scene2 blocks.

9. Add 1 more delay block at the last position of the series.

10. Connect the blocks together.

11. Press upload button at the right top of the screen.
