Hello,

I just got my Thumby (two in fact :]), I would just like to ask if it's possible to program it in plain C, without using the web IDE, just using GNU/Linux command line. I understand the IDE is comfortable and good for beginners, but I am used to programming with my own editor and I have a bunch of games written in C that I have ported to many devices which I would like to port to Thumby too. Anyone having any directions or tutorials about this? Thank you :-)

Hi, we have a very hastily made and barebones C++ abstraction over here: https://github.com/TinyCircuits/TinyCircuits-Thumby-Lib/tree/master. It uses the Arduino IDE but it might be a good reference for you.

It depends on other libraries to work. You can find documentation on all of this here: https://thumby.us/CCPP/Environment-Setup/

Let me know if you have more questions!
