Particle Photon, but without the cloud..?

Hi all,

I was just wondering if there’s a way you can use this device standalone? I’m struggling to find information on how to do this…

I don’t want to be bound to using the IDE etc or is this the only way…?

@simon098, you can build using the web IDE, Particle CLI or Particle DEV. These all use the Particle compiler farm so internet access is required. For true local building, you can install the local toolchain recommended in the README for the open-source github repo. There are lots of topics from members creating Eclipse and Netbeans (and possibly others!) dev environments as well.

Personally, I compile locally but also make use of the incredible CLI tool. Particle Dev and Web IDE are also very useful for quick and dirty tests for small apps. :smiley:
