STM32 CubeMX to ChibiOS board file generator

Postby mobyfab » Mon Apr 21, 2014 11:40 pm

Hi,

I've made a small python script that generates the pin macros in the board.h file.
You need the STM32 CubeMX (previously microxplorer) application to create an ioc file, which will be converted to macros.

I just tested it tonight and it seems to work fine.
It's a very basic script, so you'll probably have to hack it ;)

Sound very interesting!
I've sent off a tweet, let's see how many people will find this useful ;-)

It would be interesting convert it in a .chcfg file, this way the code could be generated using the existing tool.

It's possible to change the script to output a .chcfg file as well.

What are the tools to convert .chcfg to usable code? (something in chibistudio I assume)

Correct, select the .chcfg file in the project explorer and a button appears in the toolbar that regenerates formatted board.c/.h/.mk files.

It is a plugin, so you can add it to any Eclipse environment, not just ChibiStudio.

Is this project dead, or merely moved? This link is dead, but I'm interested to see just how this project worked.

Here's the updated link.

I have not worked on it for some time...

Hey,

I updated the script.
I now takes into account things such as:
- Different config for each port (fall back to a default if not found, some alternate functions are different depending on the port)
- GPIO speed, pullup/down and output mode (pushpull, opendrain)
- Create defines for each pin that you label

You can configure all the GPIOs in STM32Cube and it will generate the configs.

Would it be possible to make exe file?
I used python a couple of times, not my favorite tool :)
Will try it again, though if making .exe is difficult

Today https://www.python.org/downloads/ has two versions: 2.7 and 3.5
Which one better to use with this script?
