AXEpad is a cross-platform development tool for all PICAXE chips, supporting all three of the Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
AXEpad is a 'notepad' type application for developing PICAXE BASIC language programs. It supports all PICAXE chips and has a full set of code development features such as:
- source code colour syntax highlighting
- auto indentation
- syntax check and download
- debug and serial terminal windows
- various code generation wizards (pwmout, tune etc.)
This is the recommended tool for Linux and Mac support of the PICAXE system.
Note that although a Windows version of AXEpad is also available, on Windows we would recommend use of the PICAXE Editor instead.
