Topic: An ATtiny core collection for IDE 1.5.3 (Aka. Nightly Build) (Read 4242 times) previous topic - next topic


For those of us that don't like having to use a retro IDE only to program an ATtiny chip now and then.

Attached is a modified copy of https://github.com/TCWORLD/ATTinyCore collection. The boards.txt file has been re-worked to comply with the 1.5.3 IDE hardware layout scheme.

IC's Supported:

ATtiny24, ATtiny25, ATtiny44, ATtiny45, ATtiny84, ATtiny85, ATtiny167, ATtiny861, ATtiny2316 & ATtiny4313

Quick install:
Unzip to your ArduinoDIR\hardware\arduino\ directory. Done.

To use:
1. Select an IC from the Tools>Board menu.
2. Choose the way it operates from the spiffy new Tools>Mode menu.

That's it, Happy Hacking.


Never mind. I just realized that, although they compile fine. They will not upload due to some kind of failure within the java back-end. (I'm no java guru.)

any updates on this. I really don't want to use an old IDE either:-(


Tiny core for both 1.0x and 1.5x

I downloaded the zip file and followed the instructions on README, unzipping to my Arduino Sketchbook folder etc but the ATtiny etc dont get added to the Tools - Board list, just the original list.
Any suggestions?

I am using Arduino 1.5.5 it works in 1.05


Did you rename Prospective Boards.txt to boards.txt  (and restart the IDE) ?

Yes I did that.
1.05 works OK but the newer 1.5 doesnt.

In the README file I am not sure what:
* In the "boards.txt" file, change the "upload.tool" entries to the
  appropriate value for your setup.

In the boards.txt what should this line read, and what are the options?



Did this ever get resolved? I an having the same issue and it's not just a matter of wanting to use the 1.5 IDE for the fun of it. I need to use 1.5 for my Yun.
