Yes, this is really possible. In fact, if you are a Linux user it is even easier. Sorry that at this time the Quorum Studio is not available for Linux. Just not enough hours or resources to make that possible. Please let the Quorum Language community know of your needs and ideas. The project seeks to base its future development around what the community sees as it's needs and priorities. You will be listened to.
Step by Step
If you want to reuse your older SD card that had been used for an earlier version of the Quorum Robot kit you will need to delete all partitions then reformat your SD card/ Why? When you first insert the micro SD card in the EV3 brick it resizes the FAT32 partition to be much smaller and creates a Linux file type (ext2) that uses most of the space. That is where the programs and resources live. These partitions do not mount in Windows or Mac OS. I will be adding an article about how to do that soon.
Before we can run a Quorum program on a LEGO™ robot, we have to install a special kind of software called a "firmware." to accomplish this, we need to use the robot's expansion slot, which accepts a microSD card (just like many digital cameras and phones). Not all microSD cards are supported. You need one with the following characteristics:
- Between 2 and 32 GB of storage.
- It must not be a SDXC type card.
- Is formatted with the FAT32 format (you can use this official SD card formatting program to accomplish this. (Many cards are pre-formatted this way by default.)
- If you are not sure what card to buy, our research lab suggests this card from Kingston. If you prefer, you can also buy a pre-loaded card on this site.
- I find I have fewer problems with Type 4 cards.
Step 1: format your card. Once formatted Eject it from your computer. I choose to format it using the Built-in Formater in Ubuntu (Linux). I open the Files icon and just right-click on the SD card and choose Format.
In the Format Dialog Box be sure that FAT is the type checked. Give a name like LeJOS13.
