Before start, there is a basic tutorial for how to use skiiiD
2Step 1. Launch skiiiD and select Arduino UNO
#1 Launch skiiiD and select New button
#2 Select ①Arduino Uno and then click ②OK button
*This is Tutorial, and we use Arduino UNO. Other boards(Mega, Nano) have same process.
3Step 2. Add Component
#1 Click '+' (Add Component Button) to search and select the component.
#2 ① Type'Dot matrix' on the search bar or find Dot matrix module on the list.
#3 ②Select Dot matrix
#4 then you can see ③ pin indication. (You can configure it.)
*This module has 5 Pin to connect
skiiiD Editor automatically indicate pin setting *configuration available
[Default Pin Indication for Max7219 Dot Matrix Module] in case of Arduino UNO
#5 After configuring pins ④ click ADD buttonon the right below side
#6 ⑤Added Module has appeared on right panel

skiiiD Code is intuitive function-based codes. This is based on skiiiD libraries.
skiiiD auto-complete feature shows skiiiD codes
