  1. I’ve migrated to Debian with Gnome desktop and I am using Visual Studio Code as IDE. As an additional bonus, all the technologies and tools I’ve developed for embedXcode run fine after minor adaptations. Some of the limitations I mentioned 4 years ago are still there but nothing critical. The new solution is fast and responsive, and I really enjoy the integrated debugger.
  2. If I can help, I'm ready to perform some moderator tasks and delete spams to keep the forum clean. Please let me know how to proceed.
  3. You could try configuring the jumpers like this: See https://embedxcode.com/site/Chapter4/Section5/#upload-to-launchpad-cc3200-wifi
  4. Nice to see you back! I've terminated the embedXcode project (it is now under LTS). I'm switching away from Apple and transitioning to Debian. Many projects on IoT and displays, as usual, and starting to investigate AI with edge computing.
  5. I did something similar with Xcode on macOS, called embedXcode. I'm now “switching back" and considering Visual Studio Code on Debian.
  6. Forget about macOS 11 Big Sur as it introduces too many disruptions. Keep macOS 10.15 Catalina for stability and support of the LaunchPad and BoosterPack boards.

  8. When I started developing embedXcode in 2010 and decided to share it in 2012, I’ve never imagined that it would be still active so many years later. Because of the multiple challenges embedXcode faces today, the adventure is coming to an end. embedXcode does not plan to support macOS 11 Big Sur and Xcode 12 but will focus instead on long-term support for macOS 10.15 Catalina and Xcode 11. To replace embedXcode, I recommend Visual Micro for Visual Studio on Windows, andPlatformIO for Visual Studio Code available on macOS, Windows and Linux. I want to thank all th
  9. This forum is about Texas Instruments MCUs, so the ad is slightly off-topic, unless you plan to support Texas Instruments MCUs. Available tools for Texas Instruments MCUs are SysConfig for GPIO configuration, and Energia for simplified access to peripherals.
  10. Hi! How to prevent the 43oh forum from being flooded with spam? Since the activity is rather quiet, the spam posts seem more frequent. Worse, some spam posts I've reported earlier haven't been removed. Hence the question: Is the 43oh forum still administered? Thank you!
  11. Check there is no conflict between the BoosterPacks with https://dev.ti.com/bpchecker/.
  12. You can try and edit the platform.txt file and set a different version for C and C++. However, this may rise conflicts with the default libraries, as they target an older version of C and C++. For more advanced use of the Energia SDK, I would recommend using Code Composer Studio.
  13. The MSP432P4111 package doesn't include the libraries folder with the WiFi library. Create the directory ~/Users/ReiVilo/Library/Energia15/packages/energia/hardware/msp432p/5.29.0-beta1/libraries Copy the folder ~/Library/Energia15/packages/energia/hardware/msp432r/5.29.0/libraries/WiFi under ~/Users/ReiVilo/Library/Energia15/packages/energia/hardware/msp432p/5.29.0-beta1/libraries to obtain ~/Users/ReiVilo/Library/Energia15/packages/energia/hardware/msp432p/5.29.0-beta1/libraries/WiFi The paths mentioned above are for macOS. They might differ for Windows and Linux. Co
  14. If you're using Energia for the MSP430, you can easily port it to chipKIT as both platforms are supported by the Arduino SDK. However, you should stick with high-level libraries like SPI and Wire instead of register-level commands. Please refer to Porting an Arduino library to Energia for some pointers.
  15. You could try editing platform.txt again and changing compiler.c.elf.extra_flags="-L{runtime.tools.msp430-elf-gcc.path}/msp430-gcc-support-files/include" for compiler.c.elf.extra_flags="-L{runtime.tools.msp430-elf-gcc.path}/msp430-gcc-support-files/include" -Wl,--cref -Wl,--print-map

    @Abdul400 There is no need to post the same question multiple times, as already at Please refer to: Netiquette for Newbies Porting an Arduino library to Energia
  17. You could use a library designed for Arduino. See Porting an Arduino library to Energia
  18. Have a look at this branch of the MSP430 with the Build instructions. It works great and allow to use the whole memory. Very useful with the 256 KB MSP430FR5994.
  19. I tried various times to adapt and develop a library for the BMI160 + BMM150 sensors on Energia, alas without succeeding. The example included in the SAIL SDK works fine, although it is pure C and aimed at Code Composer Studio. https://www.ti.com/tool/download/SIMPLELINK-SDK-SENSOR-ACTUATOR-PLUGIN The documentation provided by Bosch is very poor and marred with errors. Should you need a ready-to-use IMU, I strongly recommend the Bosch BNO055, which includes an MCU and provides ready-to-read angles, quarternions and alike.
