Can one use the Arduino IDE with the 32U4 breakout board?
I realize that the idea behind the 32U4 breakout board was for folks wanting to step away from the Arduino enviornment. In my case, I want to design an Arduino compatible product and like the simplicity of the breakout boards design over the Arduino Micro for prototyping my product.
I have a lot of experience designing with PIC micro's, but none with Atmel , Arduino or WinAVR. Can I just flash an Adafruit 32U4 breakout board with the Leonardo bootloader and select the Leonardo board from the Arduino IDE and be off and running, or is there a bit more to it?
I don't yet have a break out board to experiment with and wanted to know if this is a viable path.
Thanks in advance
