Detecting board from sketch

Is it possible to detect board type by code from induistruino / protoduino.
So that it becomes possible to write code that works on all versions
(assigning pin layout in setup phase depending on board type.)

Hi Peter,

Below code runs on all 3 platforms (D21G, 32u4, 1286) and detects the architecture: AVR or SAMD.

Still, during upload you need to select the correct type of platform.

 

#if defined(ARDUINO_ARCH_AVR) || defined(__AVR__)
boolean D21G = false;
#define SER_USB Serial
#elif defined(ARDUINO_ARCH_SAMD)
boolean D21G = true;
#define SER_USB SerialUSB
#endif

void setup() {
  // put your setup code here, to run once:

  SER_USB.begin(9600);
  while (!SER_USB);

  if (!D21G) {
    SER_USB.println("AVR board");
  }
  if (D21G) {
    SER_USB.println("SAMD board");
  }
}

void loop() {
  // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

}
