January 2022: Cosmic has developped an experimental version of a package based on Eclipse and containing all the tools needed for STM8 application development:
an IDE (Eclipse), a compiler (Cosmic), and a debugger (a GDB version, ported for the purpose of this experience). The current package is available for Linux only
(ubuntu 20.04, real PC or virtual machine) and includes a 1-year license (for the compiler only, everything else is open source). The integration with Eclipse is
preliminary: some of the most important paramenters can be set via menus, but for any complex use it is currently necessary to know the command line version of the
In a similar way, it is currently not possible to just choose a derivative and have the linker file generated accordingly (as it is the case for IDEA and STVD): the linker file must be modified by hand
(it can be easily done inside Eclipse).
Both the simulator and actual hardware (via openocd, included in the package) are supported.
