The VS Code xPack C/C++ Managed Build Extension is available as ilg-vscode.xpack from the Visual Studio Code Marketplace.
It can also be installed from a terminal:
code --install-extension ilg-vscode.xpack
This specific version can be installed with the following command, although generally it is recommended to use the latest version:
code --install-extension email@example.com
The 0.4.19 release is generally compatible with previous releases.
- [#35] - add the Hello World QEMU template, which can create Arm Cortex-M, Arm Cortex-A (32/64-bit) and RISC-V (32/64-bit) bare-metal projects.
The ilg-vscode.xpack extension is fully portable and works on any platform supported by VS Code; internally it relies on xpm, which is also a portable application running on all platforms supported by npm/node.
However, for projects using binary xPacks, they are available mainly on the modern platforms, like Windows/macOS/Linux.
