Does XOD work with Particle Electron boards?

I am a total noob when it comes to programming boards. I am however very interested in what XOD can do. Can this work with Particle products like the Electron and Boron?

Unless these boards can be programmed using Arduino IDE, they probably will not work with XOD. XOD is basically a graphical front-end to the compiler used by Arduino IDE.

It’s not real clear, but this is the documentation provided: Required Hardware — XOD

The particle electron is used on a Arduino board. Does this mean XOD will work?

I see references to “STM32F205 ARM Cortex M3 microcontroller”, but nothing about “Arduino” in a quick search. It also mentions “It also comes with Particle’s development tools and cloud platform for managing and interacting with your new connected hardware.” which implies it may have a bootloader that is not compatible with Arduino IDE. Even if you could use XOD to program the board, XOD does not have any tools for programming the cellular connections that the board supports.

Here is a thread discussing “arduino-ness” of particle board: How 'Arduino' is Particle (Electron)? - #2 by kennethlimcp - Getting Started - Particle, which mentions porting Arduino libraries, which is a good indication it is not going to work with XOD…
