[SOLVED] Particle Web IDE: Uploading a project — SOLUTION: Customise Particle Workbench


  1. Uploading a project to the Particle Web IDE is not possible.
  2. However, customising the Particle Workbench is possible.

The Particle Web IDE features a Download app sources button to download the source code from the cloud.

Now, I would like to upload a project to the Particle Web IDE. How to proceed?

Thank you!

It’s not possible to upload a project. You can only copy and paste code into the Web IDE.

For larger projects, we recommend using Particle Workbench and Github instead of the Web IDE.

Problem is, the Particle Web IDE still supports the RedBear Duo while the Particle Workbench no longer does.

Hey @rei_vilo,

I was able to add support for the redbear duo in Workbench with the following:

cd ~/.particle/toolchains/deviceOS
git clone https://github.com/redbear/firmware redbearduo
cd redbearduo
git submodule update --init --recursive

mkdir .workbench
nano .workbench/manifest.json

Put the following contents in .workbench/manifest.json:

    "version": "1.0.0",
    "toolchains": [
            "firmware": "deviceOS@source",
            "compilers": "gcc-arm@5.3.1",
            "debuggers": "openocd@0.11.2-adhoc6ea4372.0",
            "platforms": [1],
            "scripts": "buildscripts@1.9.2",
            "tools": "buildtools@1.1.1"
    "platforms": [
            "id": 1,
            "name": "duo",
            "generation": 1

In Workbench I set the Custom Device OS Location to ~/.particle/toolchains/deviceOS/redbearduo

Next, I opened created a new Workbench project and I selected the deviceOS@source firmware and the duo device:

After that, I was able to compile the project for the redbear duo.




also worth reminding folks:

Thank you so much for the detailed procedure. Everything works as expected. Compiling off-line is a safety net when internet is down.
