Today's the day: Modkit Make Article and Beta Preview Release

Our article in Make Magazine officially hits newsstands today and although we initially hoped to have a solid Beta release before Make subscribers received their copies over the last two weeks, we're happy to announce that we'll be making a preview release of the Editor available later today.  As the Modkit editor is web based, we have a companion desktop application (more like a desktop widget) that you'll need to use in order to program your board.  The Mac version of the Modkit desktop widget is already available to download and we hope to also make the Windows version available with the preview release later on, but there are still a few loose ends to tie up. A Linux release will come shortly after.

The preview release is focused on the Modkit CrimpCard tutorial from the Make article, so if you want to try it out, you might want to pick up a copy.  We're going to get back to work, but check out the images from the upcoming release.  We're really excited and hope you are too.

  1. Hi, Ed.

    Glad to see that the Uno is being supported - that was an important question of mine. I'm also a Windows user, so please keep us informed on when we (Winusers) will be able to use Modkit - can't wait to try it out!

  2. Hi Guys,

    We just released the Beta preview but weren't able to get the Windows version of the desktop widget ready. I personally haven't slept in days so we'll take a quick break and then get back on the few remaining Windows issues. Let us know what you think about the interface.

    Best,
    Ed

  4. I'm puzzled with lots of exercises. I was afraid I could not do the right time despite my hard work. I need a support person.
