PlatformIO is an open source environment for IoT development based on a cross-platform build system and a library manager. It’s simplifying continuous integration (including in the cloud!) of IoT systems and is well integrated with IDEs like Eclipse. It is compatible with Arduino, mbed, Energia, CMSIS, and much more.
In this webinar we will go through some of the key features of PlatformIO, and demonstrate how you can use it from your Eclipse IDE.
We live in time when a wall between hobbyist and micro controller world has been completely broken. Just a few years ago nobody has imagined that MCUs could have become popular with people who are not familiar with electronics. Nowadays, you don’t need to have deep knowledge in PCB design, assembly language or become buried under MCU application notes to get your first experience with embedded world.
Also I’ve received valuable answers and wishes from the “LinkedIn Professionals” (here and here). Most of them like to work with an IDE and preferably Eclipse IDE. As PlatformIO is a console tool with rich commands interface it can work with different IDEs as the “builder, uploader & debugger”.
Today I want to explain how we can build and debug Atmel AVR (Arduino) based project using Eclipse IDE + PlatformIO.
