As Arduino 1.0 is now stabilised and wide-spread, should embedXcode continue to support Arduino 23?

Answer the :arrow: poll

Please note this is not going to affect other platforms, like chipKIT MPIDE which is still based on Arduino 23 and continues to be supported as it.

Thank you for your input. The poll opens for one week.

New release 16 of embedXcode supports the FraunchPad MSP430FR5739.

embedXcode • Sep 25, 2012 release 16 • Support for FraunchPad

The Document target now builds a PDF file along with HTML and docset files.

Documentation is here and download there.

Obsolescence Notice
The following features are planned to become obsolete in a future release:

    [li]Support for Arduino 0023 is planned to be be discontinued.[/li]
    [li]The code for multiple platforms is managed in two ways: the MCU variables like __AVR_ATmega328P__ and the IDE variables like ARDUINO=101. The MCU variables are going to be suspended in favour the IDE variables. This enables a more compact code and an easier maintenance.[/li]

Updated User Manual and Support for Xcode 4.5.1

I updated the user manual based on the feed-back I've received about the following two sections: installation and target selection.

embedXcode now supports Xcode 4.5.1.

The package includes the templates, the code snippets, and the User Manual.

As always, documentation is :arrow: here and download :arrow: there!

Please find the new release of embedXcode

Oct 21, 2012 • Selection of pde, ino or cpp extension for the sketch

When creating a new project, select the extension on the drop-down list:
• Choose pde for Arduino 0023, chipKIT MPIDE, Wiring and Leaflabs Maple,
• Choose ino for Arduino 1.0 and Energia,
• Choose cpp optionally for a standard C++ file.

Using a pde or ino extension allows to edit the sketch with the standard IDEs of the boards.

and download from http://embedxcode.weebly.com/download.html

Enjoy ;)

Please find the new release of embedXcode

Nov 17, 2012 release 22 • New Make and Fast optimised targets

embedXcode release 22 includes two new targets: Make and Fast.

Image

The Make and Fast targets feature an optimisation for the build of the foundation libraries.

The new targets are much faster than the corresponding Build and All targets. This is especially important for the ARM-based boards.

Please find a new release of embedXcode:

embedXcode • Feb 28, 2013 release 29 • Support for Digispark (build and link tested)

The Digispark by Digistump is an incredibly small —0,69x0,75" or 17,5x19,0mm only— but fully featured board —with I²C, SPI, ADC or PWM!

Image

More tests are required for the upload as the process is not standard.

Please find a new release of embedXcode:

embedXcode • Mar, 05 2013 release 30 • Full support for Digispark
embedXcode • Mar, 05 2013 release 31 • Automatic project configuration

Thanks to the Digispark boards received from Digistump, I ran the tests for the upload. build, link and upload work fine now.

Image Enjoy the power of a square inch!


The automatic project configuration procedure saves a lot of time. Before, a newly created project used to require many manual procedures, like declaring the .ino or .pde sketch file as C++ code file for colour syntaxing, or defining the directories for click-to-error, ... Now, you need just a click!

Image

This new automatic project configuration works for all the platforms: Arduino, chipKIT, Digispark, LaunchPad MSP430 + FRAM + Stellaris, Maple and Wiring.

I'm presently working on extending the automatic project configuration to include all the manual procedures, except for adding the user's libraries.

Image

The major challenge is to understand how Xcode stores and structures the configuration of a project.

Stay tuned!

Please find a new release of embedXcode:

embedXcode • Mar 15, 2013 release 32 • Full automatic project configuration

This new release enhances the automatic project configuration and includes:
• Declare .pde or .ino file as C++ code for code-sense, and
• Define the directory for the targets,
• Add all the cores, variants and libraries from the installed platforms under the group Resources,
• Declare all the files of the project for code-sense.

Image Image

Major impact: project are much lighter, typically 2 MB instead of 16 MB!

The only remaining manual procedure is adding user's libraries.

The User Manual has been updated accordingly.
