GUIDE – QUIRKBOT CODE

To change how the Quirkbot behaves you change the program inside of it. You do this from our website: code.quirkbot.com. You have to use the Google Chrome Browser for everything to work.

When you have created an account you can start creating and uploading code to your Quirkbot.

 
 

 

1. Upload code

First time you try to upload, the interface will install a small plug-in in your browser, and on a Windows computer you will have to install drivers. The interface will guide you trough how to do it.

Here is a link to a simple program you can try: LED example (the link will take you directly to the Quirkbot CODE)

 

 

2. Creating code

You create new code in the Quirkbot by connecting nodes together and changing the values of them.

Here is how you do some basic things:

 

ADD & DELETE NODES
By dragging and dropping into your program, and press the X to get rid of them.

 

CONNECT & DISCONNECT THE NODES
The connections makes a continuous stream of data go from one node to the other.

 

CHOOSE PLACE
All Nodes that control some external part like an LED or Servo Motor needs ti know where that part is placed.

 
 

SAVE YOUR CODE AND GIVE IT A NAME
When you do this the code will automatically get a web address. If you want to share your code just share this address, Don’t worry, none but you can change it. If someone shares code with you and you want to make your own copy, press Clone CODE. This is now your code and you can make any changes.

 

CHANGE VALUE
By dragging the slider or type in the value directly.

 

 

3. LEDs & light sensors
