GNU ARM Eclipse is now available from Eclipse Marketplace

Question asked by Liviu Ionescu on Dec 9, 2015

The GNU ARM Eclipse project includes a set of open source Eclipse plug-ins and tools to create/build/debug/manage ARM(32-bits) and AArch64 (64-bits) applications and static/shared libraries, using the latest GNU ARM GCC toolchains. 

Eclipse Marketplace

Aiming to further improve the user experience while installing/updating the plug-ins, the GNU ARM Eclipse project was registered to Eclipse Marketplace:

To use it, just drag-and-drop the button to a running Eclipse, and the plug-ins to install/update will be automatically identified:


If, for any reason, this does not work, it is always possible to search the Eclipse Marketplace manually from within Eclipse menus:
