Mplab x

Post by Sykic » Sat Apr 09, 2016 7:15 pm

Just found chip kit looks like it might save me a lot of work
Have I understood right the mpide is no longer been developed but the chipkit libraries development and support is continuing ?

I have Mplab running with a pickit3 on an olimex board pic32-pinguino

Not interested in mpide want to set break points watch variables etc.

What is the easiest way to access the chipkit libraries etc. From within Mplab x
Do I have to install mpide ? Do I start with the ardunio ide and then install chipkit core ?

Some examples I have seen include plib.h don't think this is supported anymore ?

Thanks in advance for any advice pointer what to do where to look

There is this page here on debugging chipKIT sketches in MPLAB X. ... lab-x-ide/

I think its safe to say that MPIDE dev has stopped only in as much as if there is someone that wants to support it. If someone made a pull request on the repo or wanted to fork it and maintain it themselves this is an option.

chipKIT-core is still in development and 1.2.0 was just released.

PONTECH Quick240 an industrial form factor platform for chipKIT and Arduino users.
