The xPack GNU Arm Embedded GCC

This open source project provides the platform specific binaries for the xPack GNU Arm Embedded GCC; it is hosted on GitHub as xpack-dev-tools/arm-none-eabi-gcc-xpack.

This distribution plans to follow the official GNU Arm Embedded Toolchain distribution, by Arm.

The binaries can be installed automatically as binary xPacks or manually as portable archives.

In addition to the package meta data, this project also includes the build scripts.

User info

This section is intended as a shortcut for those who plan to use the GNU Arm Embedded GCC binaries. For full details please read the xPack GNU Arm Embedded GCC pages.

Easy install

The easiest way to install GNU Arm Embedded GCC is using the binary xPack, available as @xpack-dev-tools/arm-none-eabi-gcc from the npmjs.com registry.

Prerequisites

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.

Install

With the xpm tool available, installing the latest version of the package is quite easy:

$ xpm install --global @xpack-dev-tools/arm-none-eabi-gcc@latest

This command will always install the latest available version, into the central xPacks repository, which is a platform dependent folder (check the output of the xpm command for the actual folder used on your platform, and mind the hidden .content folder).

This location is configurable using the environment variable XPACKS_REPO_FOLDER; for more details please check the xpm folders page.

xPacks aware tools, like the GNU MCU Eclipse plug-ins automatically identify binaries installed with xpm and provide a convenient method to manage paths.

Uninstall

To remove the installed xPack, the command is similar:

$ xpm uninstall --global @xpack-dev-tools/arm-none-eabi-gcc

(Note: not yet implemented. As a temporary workaround, simply remove the xPacks/@xpack-dev-tools/arm-none-eabi-gcc folder, or one of the the versioned subfolders.)

Manual install

For all platforms, the xPack GNU Arm Embedded GCC binaries are released as portable archives that can be installed in any location.

The archives can be downloaded from the GitHub releases page.

For more details please read the Install page.
