embedXcode IDE covers multiple platforms

Rei Vilo has developed embedXcode, a Xcode 4 template for embedded computing boards, that supports Arduino, chipKIT, MSP430 LaunchPad, LeafLabs Maple and Wiring boards/platforms.

“It relies on a set of modular makefiles, so adding support for a new board/platform is easy. The makefiles can also be used with any standard IDE, for example NetBeans. I hope embedXcode could help developers with a more advanced IDE on OS X.”

You can learn more at the embedXcode webpage.

    Multiplaform very good idea but what with debugging ? For blinking projects serial.print very helpfull but for complex projects too hard debug w/o hardware debugging.

    Does anyone else see the irony in a multiplatform IDE which runs on the Mac OSX only ;-)

  3. Rei Vilo says:

    You’re right! That’s why I tried the makefiles with NetBeans. But Windows directories are somewhat different from OS X. Feel free to port the to Windows!

    embedXcode has now a standard OS X installation package!
