I just connected my new spark and tried the led blinking example. All works fine, but I find the time needed to flash such a tiny application very long, nearly a minute.
I usually wrote software for AVRs on a locally installed IDE, and flashing even a big programm to the AVR via ISP is much faster. I like the fast turnaround time for debugging.
So why is flashing of the spark via Web IDE so slow. Is it just the Web IDE? Will it be faster if I build the local IDE?
Or is there another way, maybe via USB?
I would like to develop my application first locally without Wifi so there is no need to even do the connection stuff. Then, when everything is working I will enable the networking stuff. Is that a realistic way?
Thanks for advice
