Eclipse Setup and GNU Cross-Toolchain Configuration for ARM Development

Eclipse is not easy to setup to use a new toolchain. The information from the Managed Build System Extensibility Document will sure point anyone to the right direction. However, most people prefer a pre-built solution.

That’s all if you have a popular toolchain that the plug-in supports. If you have a non-standard toochain, you can just try the following since you can build the GNU ARM Eclipse Plug-in from source:

  • Follow the code for the existing supported toolchains, add your new toolchain to the source code. Then follow the project document to build it and install the plug-in. This way you don’t have to start from scratch to build your own Eclipse plug-in.

    Can I create a custom project template with custom toolchain?
    I want configuration like: “File->New Project->My Own Project”
    When I click on ‘My Own Project’, it will create one project in Package explorer.and This project should also contain custom toolchain.

    How to integrate this toolchain by default when I click on ‘My Own Project’?
