As far as I understand due to utter lack of community support Janje is NOT coming back and the Sloeber Website will expire some time in June (or was it July ?)

Jantje's Patreon account has already been closed.

It takes resources to create a powerful too such as Sloeber.
Thousands of people used the tool every day for tenthousands of compiles. Many demanded features often in a very disrespectful tone, yet very few felt compelled to donate even one dollar through Patreon.

Sloeber might have been free software but what the free stands for is freedom of choice, not free like free beer. There are many more vocal takers in the one source community than there are actually contributors.

This describes the situation very correctly.
Thanks for being my first and longest supporter in this adventure.

I'm bummed that he dropped development.  But I thank him for what he did accomplish.
I joined this whole thing after he already left. 

For those that want something better than the Arduino IDE, there is PlatformIO.

The configuration is not as easy as a menu..  You have to use compiler directives in a file.
But once that's set it's pretty easy to change once you know what you are doing.

I've switched over to that.  I might not have all the features of eclispe, but it has what I need.  I'm still learning VSC (the editor) but it has the syntax checking and auto complete stuff I liked about eclipse

Thanks again Jantje!

Hi Jantje, I'm an occasional (have not really used for a year) user of Sloeber, but I do like this very nice environment you created for us. I was about to start using it for some small hobby projects and to do a donation, but unfortunately patreon was not active anymore. Thanks for all the good work you did !

VonDyring

Came here looking for his patreon, would like to show some love for his great work. Just started using sloeber and absolutly love it. Thank you Jantje!!
Hopefully he will come back.

Sorry to read development of Sloeber seems to have stopped. Started with ucontrollers / arduino a couple of months a ago. And Sloeber is by far the best IDE (compared to Arduino IDE, VSCode and Platform.io) So compliments and thanks for your great work Jantje!

For now I will stick with it of course :)

I do have a problem with combining WiFi and BLE on an ESP32 device. Initializing both individually works without a problem. As soon as I initialize both the ESP resets. Since the debug output on 'Serial' is not visible in the console (and I do use Serial.flush) I guess this has to do with memory / flash) But I have no clue where to look or how to debug this any further. Any suggestion is welcome!

Code: [Select]

Sorry to hear that development has stopped.

I just came to Shoeber recently having managed to get Eclipse running on my Linux box following a recommendation. However I have been having problems getting the Shleober plug-in running properly and recognizing my imported project. I couldn't follow the instructions in the opening post here because all of the example images are now missing. That post also mentions that the plug-in is only supported on Windows, so maybe this is the reason I am having difficulty? I didn't get any answers to my questions about the plug-in on the Eclipse forum. Perhaps the halt in development has dried up any remaining support?

Whatever the case, it looks like I will now need to find an alternative approach, but it is sad to see the project being abandoned by the author due to a lack of support.

I use it on Linux.
And there is nowhere a sign of end. Errors are fixed, the web page is active.

BitSeeker

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I have received absolutely no replies to my questions on the Eclipse forum so I still have no way forward. That in in itself is telling I think.

then post them here

BitSeeker

Juraj, thank you. Basically, I have installed Eclipse (after some difficulty) on my Linux Mint 19.2 machine. I then installed the Sloeber plugin from within Eclipse. Wasn't sure which one to install as there were two entries with the same version number but different download file sizes. I just picked one and installed it.

I then imported an existing Arduino project into Eclipse. It consists of one .ino file, one .h file and one .cpp file. The project seems to have imported into Eclipse OK and the files show in the tree on the left hand side, but Sloeber/Eclipse does not recognize it as an Arduino project. This is probably why nothing else works and many options are greyed out in the Shoeber plugin. How do configure Eclipse/Sloeber so that it recognizes my Arduino project for what it is? I see nothing obvious anywhere. Perhaps if I can get past that, then the rest may fall into place.

I have Sloeber 4.3 in Eclipse Oxygen.3a

create a new Arduino project and copy the files into

BitSeeker

Ok, so I created a new Arduino project as follows from the Eclipse welcome page:

- select 'Create a new C/C++ project'
- select 'Arduino C++ Sketch'
- click 'Next' ('Finish' is greyed out at this point)
- give the project a name (e.g. Hello), leave everything else including workspace as default
- click 'Finish'.

The Welcome screen closes and a new project is added to the list on the LHS. I then and made a simple two line "Hello world" program:

In void setup():

Code: [Select]
Serial.begin(115200);
In void loop():

Code: [Select]
Serial.println("Hello :-)");
I then went to Arduino | Verify. The result was "Build not configured correctly". The options under Build Configurations when I right-click the project are greyed out. I have Googled the error and found a couple of questions but no answers.

Under Platforms and boards I have some Arduino AVR boards selected. Not sure what version I need, but there are some indicated. Nothing else in there that is terribly obvious.

If I attempt to upload to my Uno, I get a dialogue that states:

"The current project is not an Arduino sketch". The 'Details' button reveals exactly the same statement with no further information added.

I stress that this is for a NEW Arduino project, where an Arduino project template was definitely chosen. What I do notice is that the project was created with a .cpp rather than .ino, although I suspect this shouldn't really make a difference. If I could figure out where the plugins are managed than I might be tempted to remove and re-install the Shloeber plugin, but I can't find such an option and my patience has just about ran out.....


UPDATE: I eventually found (yes, I'm still persevering...) where to manage the plugins under... Help | Eclipse Marketplace. re-installing the plugin made no difference. Even with the Shoeber plugin removed and just the Eclipse Arduino C++ IDE for Arduino v3.0 installed I still can't configure the build or do anything else with the project.



Juraj

you have some wrong instructions

Jantje

@BitSeeker you are using the arduino plugin from Dog shaffer not sloeber.
Do not PM me a question unless you are prepared to pay for consultancy.
