Is it possible to run Arduino on a Particle Photon?

I want complete software control over the device so I can connect it to the internet and do stuff without going through Particle's cloud, logins, etc.

  • I found several F1 cores, but no F2 cores yet. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 22 '15 at 18:39
  • Hi @IgnacioVazquez-Abrams - I'm very new to this stuff overall. I'm not looking to do any custom electronics (soldering/breadboards/shields) work, just software development. What are these cores and what do they mean in regards to whether I can run Arduino or not? – sscirrus May 22 '15 at 18:55
  • A core is a shim between the Arduino libraries and the underlying hardware. Without one you won't be able to use the IDE or any of the Arduino libraries with the board. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 22 '15 at 19:01
  • @IgnacioVazquez-Abrams OK, so how good/bad is it that you've found 'several' F1 cores but no F2 cores? – sscirrus May 22 '15 at 21:40
  • It means that it may be possible to create a F2 core, but that it has not been done. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 22 '15 at 21:42

You can use the new particle dev platform to do this https://www.particle.io/dev
