I had a question to continue this thread on the old forum: https://forum.processing.org/one/topic/program-arduino-with-processing.html
Still, after reading that, I have the same question as the OP. There’s lots of detail in there that doesn’t seem to address the original question, or makes it hard to understand, at least for me.
For example, I’d like to 1) Use Processing to develop a sketch on my Mac to control an addressable LED strip via an Arduino or Pi, then 2) after it works great, embed it into the Arduino or Pi to then have it run stand alone when the board/LED strip are plugged into their own power source (with a physical on/off switch, maybe, also maybe microphone input).
What best supports this? I’ve seen in the Processing for Pi site, I can use a Pi to program on, but certainly I’d faster learn/run things via my Mac during experimenting/creating. And, the Arduino IDE looks exactly like the Processing IDE, so to the ignorant (myself) it seems to imply I can use the Arduino IDE to run/upload a sketch to the board itself, and it will live and execute the Processing code there.
Given the example above, what should I choose? Arduino or Pi?
