For those of you who don’t like to write actual text-based code, and instead prefer a visual programming environment, there are only a few options out there, most notably Scratch and NodeRED. There is a new player in the arena called Wyliodrin. This has a similar look-and-feel to Scratch and runs through a web browser. You can check out how to install it and how to use it on the official site. You can also view an introductory video below. Although you can get a developer account for free, a video does mention that you can ‘upgrade’ it, so apparently it’s a chargeable service, but the site doesn’t contain any details on this, bizarrely.
They have also started to do some video tutorials, one of which deals with feeding data in from Facebook and outputting it to two seven-segment displays. You can see the video below or visit the channel to see more videos.
