Happy Friday everyone,
I have a couple of Arduino Uno’s, have blinked LED’s, displayed on LCD’s, used keypads, using the examples/sketches included in the Arduino IDE.
I think am now ready to experiment programming AVR chips (Tiny134, Tiny85, Atmega8, etc).
Because the Tiny’s have limited memory, I would like to take a distance from the Arduino IDE as it produces code which tends to be bigger than it should. While I could setup Atmel Studio under Windows, I would like to use something “lighter”.
Was hoping to have suggestions and/or guidance as to which tools I could/should use.
I think I will need AVR-Dude, avr-gcc, an editor/IDE. Any suggestions on editor/IDE ?
I have seen (but not installed) Eclipse, but am afraid it might be ressources hungly because it is Java ?
Any feedback on Eclipe ? Sorry for such a long questions !
NOTE : My apologies if I have mistakenly posted in the wrong forum. Would AVR Geeks be more appropriate ?
