Hi all,

I'm new with STM8 and new to this forum. This is my 1st project with STM8 and I went over "Getting started with Ride 7 for ST7/STM8" guide. It showed an example how to create a new project and in the wizard has an Rbuilder to configure all the peripheral for the micro.

The Rbuilder look so handy to me but when I tried creating a new project and pick out the STM8 processor, the Rbuilder was not included and when I tried with ST7, it did show up. I guess it's only available for ST7.

Without Rbuilder, it'd not let me create a skeleton of a new project or at least a blank project I can start writting my code.

Can somebody confirm Rbuilder is available for ST7 and STM8 ? if Rbuilder is only available for ST7, how can I generate a new project without Rbuilder ?

Thanks all,

Hi Snake,

RBuilder is indeed not yet available for STM8.
The STM8 firmware Library from ST makes things quite easy to handle, so RBuilder is not as critical as it used to be on ST7. As it requires major changes for STM8 the development take longer than we would like.

The best replacement is to start from one of our examples or form an ST library example, and to modify it. This way all the project structure will be in place.
