I have created an installation script to install Arduino libraries and project templates in Atmel Studio 6. The installation is a zip file with an install.bat script. After the installation is completed developers enjoy the following functionality;
1- Arduino sketch project template to do File\New\Project\Arduino Sketch
2 - Arduino library project template
3 - One click deployment using avrdude
4 - Access to all Arduino libraries distributed with the IDE as binaries.
5 - A solution with projects for all Arduino libraries to re-deploy as needed.
For a full tutorial of how to configure the installation script for your environment read this post at my blog.http://omarfrancisco.com/arduino-programing-using-atmel-studio-6-0/
This installation script should be of help to developers transitioning out of the Arduino IDE.
