In XOD, we do not use text to code; we use visual objects instead.
This large gray area with boxes is your program. It’s called a patch. Patches are like documents or source files in other systems.
Several related patches form a project. Currently you are working on a project named
Let’s learn how to navigate a project.
On the left-hand side, you will find a list of patches grouped by a project or library name. The list is called a Project Browser. The first item in it is
welcome-to-xod. Expand the project by clicking on it.
As you can see, the tutorial consists of many patches. Right now, you are in the patch
001-hello. The next chapter of the tutorial is in the patch
002-simulate. Double-click it, and let’s meet there!
If anything goes wrong or you have no idea what to do, we have hints for every patch on the web.
If you want to learn programming microcontrollers with XOD by making a smart and pretty looking tabletop device, check out the Amperka Colony Kit.
It contains a microcontroller, sensors, actuators, and a paper guide with an exciting story inside.
