Welcome to the Arduino Eclipse installation page
This page contains Detailed instructions on how to install and configure the Arduino Eclipse plugin.
People who use MAC OSX may want to read the blog of
garretto on how to install on OSX.
Note that the instructions are a bit out dated from 1.2.2 onwards.
For instance in the settings page a private library folder is requested. This setting should point to a location where you down loaded arduino libraries.
If you haven't down loaded Arduino libraries yet do as follows
1) Consider using the Arduino IDE. (strongly advised)
2) Point it to a location where you can download Arduino libraries. (Strongly disadvised)
Detailed installation instructions
1) install the Arduino IDE
2) install eclipse indigo or Juno you need the C++ version and preferably the 32 bit version
2.1) download the code from here
2.2) Unzip the file downloaded from eclipse( I assume c:/juno)
3) Install the Arduino plugin
3.1) Start eclipse
3.2) run the program c:/juno/eclipse/eclipse.exe
3.3) give a name to the workspace (I assume you use "c:/Arduino")
3.4) Close the welcome screen
3.5) Select help->install new software
3.6) for Site enter : http://www.baeyens.it/eclipse/update
uncheck "group items by category"
3.7) restart eclipse (as requested by eclipse)
3.8 ) open the workspace c:/Arduino
4) Configure the plugin
4.1) open the preferences (windows -> preferences)
4.2) open the section Arduino->Arduino Fill it in like below (using the location of the Arduino IDE of your choice)
Add the location of your private libraries.
If you want to use the serial stuff check whether there is a compatible dll.
If not check the FAQ.
4.3) select OK to save the preferences
Congratulations: You have now successfully installed and configured the plugin.
Below are some settings which are advised. They are not needed by the plugin but they make my life easier so I guess you would benefit as well.
1)Iin general-> work space set the auto save before build on to avoid different versions between uploaded and visible code.
2) Set the the indexer to "include Arduino.h"
Add Arduino with its full path to the "files to index up-front"
