Code::Blocks is a free, open-source cross-platform IDE that supports multiple compilers including GCC, Clang and Visual C++. It is developed in C++ using wxWidgets as the GUI toolkit. Using a plugin architecture, its capabilities and features are defined by the provided plugins. Currently, Code::Blocks is oriented towards C, C++, and Fortran.
CodeBlocks IDE can be downloaded from here.
Integration process consists of these steps:
- Open system Terminal and install PlatformIO Core (CLI)
- Create new folder for your project and change directory (
cd) to it
- Generate a project using PIO Core Project Generator (
platformio init --ide)
- Import project in IDE.
platformio init --ide codeblocks --board <ID> # For example, generate project for Arduino UNO platformio init --ide codeblocks --board uno
- Open this project via
Menu: File > Open...
- Add new files to
*.c, *.cpp, *.ino, etc.) via
Menu: File > New > File...
- Build project using
Menu: Build > Build
- Upload firmware using
Menu: Build > Run
The libraries which are added, installed or used in the project after generating process won’t be reflected in IDE. To fix it you need to reinitialize project using platformio init (repeat it).
