Was Arduino IDE support ever implemented?
I found some information here: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/programming-the-lilymini/setting-up-arduino
As of December 2017, there are still bugs in Arduino support for the LilyMini. You can try out the beta programming support using our instructions at https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/programming-the-lilymini, but we recommend carefully reading the limitations in that link and evaluating it against your needs. As an alternative, you might consider the new LilyPad ProtoSnap Plus which was also designed for the classroom and has full Arduino support.
So, if you don’t really know what you’re doing and are planning to do pretty much exactly what’s in the guide or another Sarkfun project, great. If you want to do something a little different, I highly recommend getting a set of alligator clip wires to simulate your conductive thread wiring. I had to experiment with different configurations before I discovered what would work, and the alligator clip wires were vital for that. Cheap investment in success.
