GNU ARM Eclipse is now available from Eclipse Marketplace
« on: December 10, 2015, 12:57:56 AM »
Overview

The GNU ARM Eclipse project includes a set of open source Eclipse plug-ins and tools to create/build/debug/manage ARM (32-bits) and AArch64 (64-bits) applications and static/shared libraries, using the latest GNU ARM GCC toolchains. 

Eclipse Marketplace

Aiming to further improve the user experience while installing/updating the plug-ins, the GNU ARM Eclipse project was registered to Eclipse Marketplace:



Benefits

The main advantage of using the Eclipse Marketplace is a simplified install procedure, no longer requiring to manually enter the update site address.

The Install button

The Eclipse Marketplace not only provides a centralised index to locate projects, it goes one step further and provides a drag-and-drop browser button.



As seen above, the button can be included in any web page.

To use it, just drag-and-drop the button to a running Eclipse, and the plug-ins to install/update will be automatically identified:



If, for any reason, this does not work, it is always possible to search the Eclipse Marketplace manually from within Eclipse menus:

Well, I never had any problems with installation of your wonderful plug-in or packs (huge thanks!) even though several clicks were needed. Now with marketplace integration that would be even closer to one-click-to-install IDE for ARMs (like with commercial IDEs).

What is next? Wizarding?

I'd love to have the uVision-compatible configuration wizard annotations.

> uVision-compatible configuration wizard annotations

a future version this might bring this too (please add a new enhancement request in GitHub Issues to be sure I don't forget about it), but before this a new wizard to create projects from packs will be implemented.

Including support for OpenOCD?  The whole edit-compile-program-debug cycle?  If so, nice!!!
