Arduino for STM32 and STM8 develops quickly
Oct 17th, 2018 at 10:19am
 
Hi

I just noticed that the development of the Arduino cores for STM32 and STM8 has speed up recently. There are now many chips supported which VisualMicro currently doesn't know of.

https://github.com/stm32duino

Please don't loose track of ST. I would love to use their powerful chips in the Arduino environment.

Thanks

Does the arduino ide know about the new chips?

Did you try board manager and the json index file they provide? You can register and json in the arduino ide if you want to use both arduino and visual micro to develop code with the hardware.

https://github.com/stm32duino/BoardManagerFiles/raw/master/STM8/package_stm8_ind...

NB: I notice that virus checkers and firewalls might block the stm8 core and that the core needs a license which I didn't accept. I haven't tested the other cores from this site.

I added the json URLs and I'm planning to port some code to STM32 in the next weeks.

STM8 is not so interesting to me at the moment since C++ is not supported and these chips cannot do much more than AVRs which are much better supported.

then did you think visual micro was behind and did not support the STM32?

Because of the two-step selection process for STM32 demo boards in VM I thought that the support for STM32 was implemented separately from the Arduino boards system where I have never seen a sub menu for selecting the specific chip after selecting a family.
Therefore I didn't think of adding board manager URLs to enable support for additional STM32 chips.

Yes boards can define their own menus, sometimes cpu speed but boards such as esp8266/esp32 define 10+ additional options.
