Hey folks, I’m starting to get into STM32 development professionally, and as a result have a side interest in starting to do more programming for myself on the side as well. At work we use the Eclipse IDE and are transitioning to use CLion/CMake. I thought I’d start a thread here on people using alternative build/debug environments for this platform on Mac/Linux and see what setups work for people.
To start with, who here uses something other than Eclipse, on a platform other than Windows, for STM32 development and are you happy with it / has it been a fairly smooth journey?
And if you use Eclipse on Mac/Linux, have you found any great tricks/plugins/tips to help make that a bit smoother? We’re having crashes on a regular basis and I find that Eclipse is just slow and generally annoying as a whole - especially when run in a VM (the STM chip I have access to through work is not supported by the Mac build yet, so I can’t run it on my home systems natively).
Last but not least, and I may be slightly tangential to my own topic here (and am happy to create two topics if it makes more sense), has anyone found a really excellent development kit or eval board for audio development or is everyone also rolling their own hardware at the same time? I’d love some recommendations for reasonably affordable STM32 dev boards for audio work - and SPI based codec daughterboards if you use one! There are so many choices I’m sort of drowning in them.
