Notepad++ is an excellent/advanced text editor and can be customized to your needs in an easy way. But how you “convert” it to a AVR custom IDE? Check what Vasilis writes on his blog vpapanik.blogspot.gr:

Now that you’ve chosen to drop Arduino and write in pure AVR-GCC for your next project, there are more IDE options to suit your needs. From the nice Programmer’s Notepad, included in the WinAVR installation, to the official supercharged AVRStudio. And the list is endless…

For the last couple of years, my personal preference for an advanced text editor, is, by far, the excellent Notepad++. I am a big fan of its customizable color themes and syntax highlighting, lots of editing options (like clickable links) and plugin support. Notepad++ is of course completely free and open source.

Component Organizer released the source code. You can download it at github.  [via]

Component Organizer (or CO for short) is a small, cross-platform and very easy to use application targeted at all those people who have electronics as (at least) an hobby. It’s main purpose is to avoid to google for the same datasheet hundreds of times or “hey I know I already downloaded that datasheet but I can’t find it now on my computer”, so you spend less time gathering information and have more time to look at the hardware. With Component Organizer you can easily search and manage your datasheets and application notes. You can as well manage your component’s stock and be alerted when it’s on low stock or without stock. A component can be an amplifier, a microcontroller, but also a development board, a compiler… All those things that have an heavy document describing it’s features and/or how it works. It doesn’t require installation and so it’s very portable. You can use it in a PEN drive or with Dropbox allowing your data to be always accessible.

This is a small tutorial on how to make ‘3D Warehouse‘-like previews for your SketchUp 3D Models. It involves installing and using the SketchUp Web Exporter plugin – [via]

This tool will create in the given directory a collection of JPEG pictures and an HTML file containing the JavaScript code to animate the panorama, as well as a ZIP file containing the above files for convenient deployment on a website.
