XOD – is an open-source visual programming language for microcontrollers started in 2016. As a supported platform XOD started with Arduino boards compatibility and Raspberry PI.[1][2][3][4][5][6]


The basic elements of XOD programming are nodes. XOD is based on functional reactive principles and provides graphical flow-based programming interface. XOD can compile a native code for the low-ended controllers. A node is a block that represents either some physical device like a sensor, motor, or relay, or some operation such as addition, comparison, or text concatenation. XOD is also able to let the user build up some missing node using other nodes, without switching to textual programming.[7][8][9]


Node-Red and NoFlo are the closest analogs of XOD.
