I was simply tired of all that wires on my breadboard and I had a small chunk of a stripboard left from another project.
This small shield (a bit forced since Arduino has a wierd holes matrix and it’s not compatible with a standard stripboard or protoboard) speeds up the development integrating the hearthbeat led for Arduino ISP when using Arduino as the programmer for the Attiny. I also added the capacitor needed by my Arduino UNO rev. 2 and a spare led for Pin 0 (Pin 5 on the chip) so that I can quick test with a blink if the sketch is running fine.
Today I’ve also adapted my Makefile to work with the Attiny and got rid o that silly IDE.
