Setting up your Arduino IDE

Make sure you have the latest Arduino IDE. Click here to go to the Arduino downloads page.

When your Arduino IDE is installed, it might be necessary to restart your computer. In some cases, if you don’t restart your computer, the IDE will not launch.

Board Files

When your IDE is all started, we should add the URL before we can install the libraries. Click on File > Preferences and at the bottom you should see ‘Additional Boards Manager URLs’. This is where you need to paste the following URL:

AVR (Moya, Mbili, Ndogo, Tatu)
SAMD (Sara, Explorer, Autonomo, One)


When you have pasted the URL, click ‘OK’ and you’re ready for the next step.

You can use both URLs at the same time.


Click on Sketch > Include Libraries > Manage Libraries…
