Flashing Wio Link firmware for Android

Post by bsw » Thu May 17, 2018 7:24 am

I'm looking for correct, up-to-date information regarding the following:

1) The exact procedure to flash the Wio Link firmware to function with the Arduino IDE
2) Which board driver to select in the Arduino IDE

I'm familiar with the general Arduino process, and I have successfully set up several other types of development boards, but my Wio Link fails to communicate with the Arduino IDE.

I just need the specific details required to enable the Wio Link to run in the Arduino IDE. The instructions on the Seeedstudio web site were missing images, and seemed to be outdated. I followed them as well as I could, but they clearly were missing something.

The instructions I was attempting to use are located here: https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/Wio_Lin ... User-Guide

If anyone could point me to procedure steps that are known to be up-to-date and correct, I would be extremely grateful! The Wio Link looks like a well designed and constructed piece of hardware. I'd love to be able to actually use it!

Kind regards,

Brian

Dear Costumer:
Wio Link can be programed with Arduino IDE, in that case it will lose the functionality of RESTful APIs except you implement another one in the same time. Wio Link is mostly expected to archive the Web of Things conversion for physical hardware, so interactions are expected to perform in web / internet. But no worries, the software architecture is flexible, you can pull down the source code to local and connect Wio Link to the local servers, then you could modify the source code which will be compiled.If you would like to interact with Arduino or RPI, you can develop a 3rd-party module driver and here’s the guide: (https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/Wio_Lin ... io-Link%3F) and example driver:(https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/Wio_Lin ... ve_example)
