    The GNU MCU Eclipse QEMU binary xPack

    This binary xPack installs the platform specific binaries for the GNU MCU Eclipse QEMU.

    The source files of the xPack project are publicly available from GitHub.

    How to use

    This section is intended for developers who plan to use the QEMU binaries.


    The only requirement is a recent xpm, which is a portable Node.js command line application. To install it, follow the instructions from the xpm page.

    Easy install

    The xPack is available as @gnu-mcu-eclipse/qemu from the repository; with xpm available, installing the latest version of the package is quite easy:

    $ xpm install --global @gnu-mcu-eclipse/qemu

    Global xPacks are always installed in the user home folder, even on GNU/Linux
    or macOS, and do not require sudo.

    The GNU MCU Eclipse plug-ins automatically identify binaries installed with xpm and provide a convenient method to manage paths.

    To remove the installed xPack, the command is similar:

    $ xpm uninstall --global @gnu-mcu-eclipse/qemu

    (Note: not yet implemented. As a temporary workaround, simply remove the xPacks/@gnu-mcu-eclipse/qemu folder, or the versions subfolders.)

    Developer info

    The xPack git repo

    The few xPack source files are available from GitHub:

    $ git clone qemu-xpack.git

    Binary files

    The binaries are not stored on the server, but are downloaded from
    the releases section of the gnu-mcu-eclipse/qemu GitHub project.
