Title: Adding 3rd Party Boards to Arduino 1.5.x
Post by: 32teeth on Nov 29, 2012, 09:20 pm
Hey Everyone
I wanted to share a quick resource i created for adding 3rd party boards to the new Arduino 1.5.x IDE.

Have a read through. It's pretty high level.


third party not invited
how to get your variant mcu working in arduino 1.5.x

It walks you through the platform, programmer and board files structure so you can do cool stuff like this

Thank you for the attempt, but still too high level and/or terse for my skill set, not the step by step with pictures every step with folder names and all file names listing shown, example I would require to be able to add a new board/processor type. I guess I will forever be limited to the boards the the 'official arduino team' deems worthy for me to use.   ;)

I did once add support for a Sanguino 644p based board once to a version 11 IDE (I think) but they just provided a zipped file and said unpack it here and wala it just worked, now that was the level of help I needed.  :D

I'm quite good at hacking hardware, software hacking I suck.

Thanks for sharing
It can indeed do some work but it is good enough or a first release.
best regards

thanks for the comments
i have started looking into a 'package' creator where you drop your files into, run a batch, take your new folder and plop it into arduino environment
