.NETMF Toolbox

Somewhere around 2010, I discovered the Netduino project. This was an Arduino, but you could write code in .NET. Since the Arduino IDE wasn't that evolved at that time just yet, and .NET was already a professional language that I mastered, I started toying with this.

Since the support for many components weren't there at the time I started, I started writing loads of libraries for different components. Even though I haven't maintained this for a while, those libraries are still very much requested.

In 2011 they were hosted on Codeplex, a cloud mercurial versioning provider, but Codeplex has been discontinued. For that reason I recently converted the repository from mercurial to git and moved it to Bitbucket.

Below you'll find the documentation of the library. Source code can be found at https://bitbucket.org/garrcomm/.netmf-toolbox.

Current samples


The library is maintained by Stefan Thoolen with a lot of thanks from:

  • Steven Don for his help with writing Speaker.cs and his C# expertise
  • Mario Vernari for his contributions and help with understanding electronics
  • Daniel Loughmiller for the 74HC595 bitbang code
  • Chris Walker for a lot of guidance and appreciating and spreading these works
  • Matt Isenhower and Steve Bulgin for helping with the installer
  • The Netduino Community for if they weren't using this, I wouldn't continue expanding this
