Arduino Nano - Software Installation
To program for Arduino Nano, the following are required:
- A text editor to write the code in a form that is readable by humans
- A compiler to convert the human-readable code into a binary code that can be understood by Arduino Nano
- A programmer to upload the binary code to the Arduino Nano
It may seem complex. However, don't be concerned. All of these components are incorporated into the Arduino IDE software. We just need to: install the software → compose the code (in a language that is understandable by humans) → press a button on the software. The rest will be taken care of by the software.
An alternative tool, known as Arduino Nano Web Editor, exists. However, we suggest that beginners use the Arduino IDE.
The Arduino IDE can be used on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems.
