Adding new board definitions to arduino 1.6


  • Admin

    I'm trying to create a new board definition file for the micro board, so it's easier for others to compile things specifically to this board.

    But It seems that I am missing something, as I keep getting the following error now:

    sketch_feb24a.ino:1:21: fatal error: Arduino.h: No such file or directory 
    compilation terminated.
    

    (It's just the default empty sketch that I'm trying to compile)

    I have created the following structure under my arduino folder

    hardware\
    ->MySensors\
       ->avr\
          ->boards.txt
            platform.txt (copy from main arduino dir)
            programmers.txt (empty file)
            variants\
            ->Micro\
              ->pins_arduino.h
    

    THe above was made partially with info from https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/wiki/Arduino-IDE-1.5---3rd-party-Hardware-specification

    boards.txt contains the following
    MySensorsMicro.name=MySensors Micro

     MySensorsMicro.upload.tool=arduino:avrdude
     MySensorsMicro.upload.protocol=arduino  
     MySensorsMicro.upload.maximum_size=30720
     MySensorsMicro.upload.maximum_data_size=2048
     MySensorsMicro.upload.speed=57600
     MySensorsMicro.bootloader.tool=arduino:avrdude
     MySensorsMicro.bootloader.unlock_bits=0x3F
     MySensorsMicro.bootloader.lock_bits=0x0F 
     MySensorsMicro.bootloader.low_fuses=0xFF 
     MySensorsMicro.bootloader.high_fuses=0xDA
     MySensorsMicro.bootloader.extended_fuses=0x05
     MySensorsMicro.bootloader.file=atmega/ATmegaBOOT_168_atmega328.hex
     
     MySensorsMicro.build.board=AVR_MICRO8
     MySensorsMicro.build.core=arduino  
     MySensorsMicro.build.variant=micro 
     MySensorsMicro.build.mcu=atmega328p
     MySensorsMicro.build.f_cpu=8000000L
    

    However, it doesn't work at all.. As mentioned before, It can't find the arduino.h file, and I can't figure out why..

    Is there anyone else that has a bit more knowledge about boards definition in the newest arduino 1.6, that could help out?
