Thank you for your answer quite logical. In that particular case, I'm using the servo.h library which allows any pin for driving a servo, it makes calls to timers with interrupts I think. Apart from that, will you permit users to develop their own components, such as displays, sensors or encoders ? I know this is an open door to anarchy but I cannot imagine you're able to create all the existing devices, you'll risk to spend all your time for that and anyway some components will always miss as every day new things are created. Last, but not least, will you develop a debugger ? Cheers.

@rafununu 

skiiiD is now on beta stage, so we are developing under our control now to prevent any critical errors or bugs. However, when an official version released, we consider changing skiiID to open-source. In addition, we are planning to make a service to share user's libraries and sync with skiiID easily. 

In addition, we have roadmap to develop a debugger! 

All feedbacks and questions are welcomed and thankful. Please feel free to contact us!

I don't understand your goal. To my opinion you're reinventing the wheel. When we want to be exaustive, we necessarily lose some of the existing possibilities, for example your app doesn't allow the use of all I/O pins for the Servo control, not even all the digital pins. The Arduino IDE isn't perfect, it doesn't provide a debugger (for now) but has a correct editor, moreover it's free. I'm perfectly aware of the huge work you've already made, this is obvious looking at the app, and I don't want to discourage you, but I don't understand.... Cheers

First of all, Thank you for the feedback @rafununu 

Our editor 'skiiID' is one of the alternatives for development boards IDE. skiiiD gives convenient features and options to makers or any developers.

To answer your question
"doesn't allow the use of all I/O pins for the servo control, not even all the digital pins."

-> Servo motors use PWM pins, so skiiiD only indicate PWM pin.  In addition, you can write an original code manually(or copy and paste) as used on Arduino IDE without using a feature of adding modules. 

We are glad to all the feedback. 
If you have any questions or anything please let us know!

  Are you sure? yes | no
