You need to setup a com port, I have tried this on Windows 7 and Windows 10

Non-Windows XP Users download version 1.4.0 drivers. Unzip the file, run the executable, and then go to C:\Program Files (x86)\STMicroelectronics\Software\Virtual comport driver in Windows Explorer and double-click either dpinst_amd64.exe for 64 bit systems, ordpinst_x86.exe for 32 bit.

There is a nice webide that can be added to chrome as follows

 

Start the webdide and click on the connect and select the correct com port

Code Example

This simply switches the 2 led’s on and off

var on = false;
var off = true;
setInterval(function() {
on = !on;
LED1.write(on);
off = !off;
LED2.write(off);
}, 500);
