“Arduino is one of the most popular platforms among makers. Its community has produced a large number of libraries to interface with peripherals such as LED displays, sensors, RFID readers and breakout boards. One of the main drivers for Arduino’s adoption is its simplicity. With Windows 10 IoT Core, you can now create or port Arduino Wiring sketches that will run on supported IoT Core devices, including Raspberry Pi 2, 3 and Minnowboard Max.”
The Arduino Wiring sketch runs as a background Application on an IoT Core device. This is quite similar to running a sketch on an Arduino device such as the Arduino Uno for example. However, you will still be able to debug the sketch and in the similar manner as you would in any other app under Visual Studio, just by inserting the breakpoints and/or stepping through the code. Additionally, in order to enable verbose output logging, Serial.print() and Serial.println() have also been updated, so as to send their output to Visual Studio’s debug pane, when the sketch is running under the debugger. The Log() function can also be used to output debug too. For more details, check Arduino Wiring Porting guide.
“To use an existing Arduino library, you simply need to copy and add the header (.h) and source file (.cpp) for the library to your project, then reference the header file. Again, most libraries should work with no or very few modifications. However, if you face any issues, please check the Arduino Wiring Porting Guide.”
