How to attach an Arduino?

I'm about to get an Arduino, and I would like to hook it up to my Raspberry Pi to program it. I know that Arduino works on Linux, but I also know that having the right software can help considerably. Are there libraries available to do so?

You can run the Arduino IDE on the Raspberry Pi, but it's a bit slow. It's in the Raspbian repositories: sudo apt-get install arduino.

The Arduino can just appear as a simple serial device, and you can use any protocol you want. I've used pyFirmata successfully. There's also a question here which asks much the same: How to attach an Arduino?
