About

Ever wanted to start a new Arduino project and...

  • not use the terrible Arduino IDE?
  • use your favorite text editor instead?
  • have decent code completion and syntax checking?
  • organize your directory tree as you like?
    • libraries in lib
    • sources in src
    • tests in test
    • binaries in bin
    • etc.
  • use a newer version of avr-gcc such as 9.x.x?
  • use an awesome Makefile to compile and upload your code from the cli?

If you answered yes to one of the above, this Bare Arduino Project is just what you're looking for! :)

What you get

Based on what we've learned from our Moti project, this repo will allow you to:

  • move away from the Arduino IDE and use your favorite text editor such as Vim or SublimeText
  • get up and running in less time
  • use the latest version of avr-gcc 9.x.x to compile your code
  • use C++17 for your standard coding
  • use make to compile, make upload to upload, thanks to Sudar's incredible project Arduino-Makefile

To put it in a nutshell, it allows you to write Arduino code the way you've always wanted!

How to install and use

The full procedure is detailed in INSTALL.md.

Bugs

⚠️ If you encounter some issues while using the Bare-Arduino-Project, please first report the issue here in this repo issue tracker and not in Arduino-Makefile.

It will allow us to investigate first and not overflow the Arduino-Makefile issue tracker.

Text editors

Because we are so awesome, we also provide your with 2 famous text editors configurations!

Sublime Text - SublimeClang

⚠️ Note: I haven't used SublimeText for developping in C/C++ for years, so the following might not work as expected.

To code in C/C++, we highly recommend using SublimeClang, even if the plugin is not maintained anymore (this fork seems to be up-to-date). As far as we can tell, it works beautifully well and will save you a lot of time! :)

As quarnster puts it:

Clang plugin for Sublime Text 2 providing auto complete suggestions for C/C++/ObjC/ObjC++. It'll also optionally parse the code as it's typed and show errors and warnings.

The bare-arduino.sublime-project contains all you need to be up and running. Feel free to customize it to your needs with different flags for example.

Vim - YouCompleteMe

Vim is our default text editor and we use the incredible vim plugin YouCompleteMe for syntax checking and code completion.

As Valloric puts it:

YouCompleteMe is a fast, as-you-type, fuzzy-search code completion engine for Vim. It has several completion engines: an identifier-based engine that works with every programming language, a semantic, Clang-based engine that provides native semantic code completion for C/C++/Objective-C/Objective-C++ (from now on referred to as "the C-family languages"), a Jedi-based completion engine for Python, an OmniSharp-based completion engine for C# and an omnifunc-based completer that uses data from Vim's omnicomplete system to provide semantic completions for many other languages (Ruby, PHP etc.).

The .ycm_extra_conf.py file contains everything you need. It should work right out of the box on macOS and need very little modification on Linux!

Bonus - .editorconfig

To make sure everything is always formatted as you like, you can customize the .editorconfig file to suit your needs.

Please refer to the official Editorconfig documentation for more details and to download the plugins needed.
