Jack Gassett Posted January 7, 2014 Report Share Posted January 7, 2014 Hey everyone, I'm splitting my time between work on the new Papilio boards and the Papilio Schematic Library. I got such great help when I posted about the next generation Papilio boards that I figured I would start posting about my daily work on the Papilio Schematic Library too. I always assumed it would bore peoples socks off but maybe people are interested and can give me some pointers or tips as I work through things. So whats up next for the PSL is integrating everything into the ZAP IDE. I have a good release of all the HDL, but now I want to make everything tie together and get examples and libraries for all of the HDL components. I've been putting lots of thought into how to tie things together and this is what I'm thinking:I want to copy the PSL directory into the ZAP IDE folder and make a symbolic link to the Papilio_Schematic_Projects directory so that they show up as examples in the ZAP IDE. I need to restructure the PSL directory for this to work.When you open up the ZAP IDE and select a PSL board then all of the examples will be available. When you open an example there will be links in the heading of the code that you can click on to load a bit file, open a pdf schematic, or open the schematic in ISE to edit.The first step to making this work is to modify the source code for the ZAP IDE so that links to files in the sketch's directory can be opened. I've done this for windows already and the changes are checked in here:https://github.com/GadgetFactory/ZAP--ZPUino-Arduino-Papilio--IDE/commit/67dfc3472bcc34a88edc69f1821d548d2d93a3a7 It works in Windows but untested in linux. Next up is re-arranging the directory structure and making symbolic links so the examples show up correctly in ZAP IDE. Jack. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
