More blocks! Report #1

I have been working on some important new blocks before the Beta release. Here are some of them (another post with more blocks soon!). I know, someone can think that this is complex, but there are good news: a teacher or any other user who wants to simplify the GUI, can configure Minibloq to load only some blocks (I will write more on this with the Beta documentation):

Another new feature is a better organization subsystem for the blocks. The last row, for example, now contains the special sensors blocks. Although in Minibloq it's possible to read a sensor with the AnalogRead standard block, now there are some special sensor blocks, like Seeedstudio's ultrasonic ranger. I'm working with different manufacturers to add more sensors soon.


  1. I must say, you've really made impressive progress, Julián... really nice!

    I'm thinking that these blocks, along with some of the other ones, would also be useful in the development of desktop, mobile and possibly even web apps, just as much for hardware programming. That would probably be realized when your HMI feature is ready.

    Cheers, buddy!

  2. Hi Kris, thanks!

    I will be posting more about new blocks, and probably some internals soon, before the Beta release.
