It’s mostly thanks to Daniel F1RMB for making it easier for Linux users to build the firmware etc.

I wrote the Python based firmware loader, but Daniel improved it and has done a lot of other work for Linux compatibility

How does one build the code outside of Eclipse, I googled around for a bit earlier and I must really be failing at what terms to search for as I found no instructions on how to build OpenGD77. Thanks!

If you want to build some other way , you'd need to create your own make file and also download and install GCC etc

The only supported build method is to use MCUExpresso

Ah that makes sense, I'll give that a shot. :)

MCUExpresso is a free download and works on all the major OS's, so there is no reason not to use it.

However once you have it installed etc, you could look at the .mk files that it creates, as they look like they are in a standard format and you could potentially use them to create your own make file.
