Is there any updates on this?
Visual Micro seems like a really nice project, and makes it very easy for users to add support for a increasingly wide range of boards to Visual Studio. Or is there any other way to develop with Visual Studio, with intellisense?
I have seen Anurag’s https://www.hackster.io/AnuragVasanwala/particle-photon-visual-studio-2015-ea22e0, but vMicro support would be a way more complete solution.
I’m not really familiar with how to add Board Manager support to vMicro, and thereby also support for the Arduino IDE. The package needs the core files, I find it hard to distinguish the core files in the Firmware section on github. But once supported, it’s easy as adding the url for a .json package.
RedBear has added support for their RedBear Duo ( ARM Cortex-M3 MCU + BCM43438) -> https://github.com/redbear/STM32-Arduino
But your way of building and library management, is really different from the Arduino way of doing so, so it’s properly not really straight forward. Maybe it’s also the reason why it haven’t been done yet?
