Release 1.0.0 of the Buildroot/Eclipse integration

We are proud to announce today the first release of the
Buildroot/Eclipse integration. This integration will make it easier
for Eclipse users to develop, build, and debug applications in the
context of embedded Linux systems generated with Buildroot.

This integration allows Eclipse to:

  • Automatically discover the toolchain made available by each of the
    Buildroot project on your machine.
  • Automatically build your application or library in Eclipse using
    the cross-compiler of a given Buildroot project. Eclipse also
    automatically recognizes all the cross-compiled libraries that are
    exposed through pkg-config, so that linking your application
    against one or several of those libraries is just a matter of
    selecting them in a list.
  • Automatically copy your compiled application to the target and
    execute it, directly from Eclipse, with just one click on the “Run”
    button.
  • Automatically start a remote debugging session, directly from
    Eclipse, with just one click on the “Debug” button.
  • Explore the target filesystem from Eclipse, get access to a shell
    on the target (using SSH).

First post = presentation

Well, it seems my turn as come to start blogging on what I am working on. Actually, I am an Eclipse Modeling Software Developer and as I joined Obeo company at the end of last year, I entered the world of free software development.

So, yes (I am sorry for the non-java-modeling geeks ;) ) it will be yet another blog on Eclipse, Modeling… and other stuff I will encounter in my day to day work.

Ok, now as the presentations are done, why beginning to blog now? Because after some months, my first contributions to OSS are available!

At the moment, I am contributing mainly to two projects :

UML Designer – a UML modeler developed using Obeo Designer available woth EPL license on github.

MARTE Designer – a MARTE modeler also developed using Obeo Designer available on Eclipse Market Place.

More on my contributions in next posts.
