Changing the default Arduino New Project Template


When I start a new Arduino project, i would prefer the template be the main.cpp found in the arduino cores directory (i.e. based on main() instead of setup() & loop().). I’ve searched everywhere and cannot find out how to do this…

I did learn how to use snippets… a pretty cool feature; but I would still prefer it if I could somehow change the starting template.

can someone point me in the right direction?


Currently, we don’t provide this configuration. However, this feature request will help here

Thanks for the quick feedback. In the mean time, I will just drag my template into the project src file when i create a new project.
