  • URL of the latest p2:
    jar:https://github.com/arduino/arduino-create-eclipse/releases/latest/download/arduino-create-eclipse-p2.zip!/
    
  • Generic p2 URL pattern for any semver releases:
    jar:https://github.com/arduino/arduino-create-eclipse/releases/download/v${semver}/arduino-create-eclipse-p2.zip!/

Limitations:

Currently, you can build the imported Arduino Create project on Linux only.

  • Windows:
    C:\path\to\your\project\_cmake\core\shell.h:8:10: fatal error: sys/wait.h: No such file or directory
     #include <sys/wait.h>
              ^~~~~~~~~~~~
    compilation terminated.
    
  • macOS:
    /path/to/your/project/_cmake/core/DebugSerial.h:56:2: error: unknown type name 'pthread_barrier_t'
        pthread_barrier_t _barrier;
        ^

FAQ:

Q: What happens when cmake is not installed on the system?
A: If cmake is not installed, you will see the following console output in Eclipse:

Buildfile generation error occurred..
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE:STRING=Debug -DCMAKE_EXPORT_COMPILE_COMMANDS:BOOL=ON -G Unix Makefiles /home/user_name/dev/arduino-create-eclipse-ws/arduino_create-cmake
Cannot run program cmake: Unknown reason
Error: Program cmake not found in PATH
PATH=[/home/user_name/bin:/home/user_name/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/snap/bin]
Build stopped..

Q: What happens when cmake4eclipse is not installed in Eclipse?
A: This Eclipse plug-in has a hard dependency on cmake4eclipse. It will be implicitly installed into Eclipse when this Eclipse plug-in is installed either from a p2 update site or the Eclipse Marketplace.
