SlickEdit Core for Silicon Labs Simplicity Studio
« on: March 17, 2015, 03:37:44 pm »
Hi,

I just downloaded a trial of SlickEdit Core v4.3.2 for Eclipse and installed it without any issue in Eclipse Luna 4.4.1.

Ultimately though I would like be able to use it in Silicon Labs Simplicity Studio (http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/simplicity-studio.aspx) which is based on Eclipse 3.8.1 per below. Is this a supported platform, and if so, do I install the latest Core release as I did for Luna or do I need to locate an older version of Core for Simplicity Studio?

Code: [Select]
*** Features:
com.silabs.simplicity.studio.product.feature (1.0.0.201402180939-96) "Simplicity Studio Base Product"
org.eclipse.emf.ecore (2.8.3.v20130125-0546) "EMF Ecore"
org.eclipse.help (1.4.1.v20120912-145617-8R7xFOXFLWUl7PpMEeZNIGkb4) "Help System Base"
org.eclipse.platform (3.8.1.v20130118-180812-9jF7oIBFG8eU2pim-VbIlTuQjY0RWWK3x-bv4I) "Eclipse Platform"
org.eclipse.rcp (3.8.2.v20130118-180157-96BuGOZFxwOAeG8Ofmqicz0tPK) "Eclipse RCP"

Thanks,
Don

The previous version 3.7 Core for Indigo is still available using the update site: https://customer.slickedit.com/update/secore/indigo

That one should work, but I haven't tested it against that particular branded Eclipse package.

Hi Lee,

Thanks, the SlickEdit Core Indigo does work, thanks! One thing I noticed is that .c/.h files in pre-existing projects don't automatically open in SlickEdit when clicked, although I can right click on the open file and choose "Switch to SlickEdit."  For projects created after installing SlickEdit Core, the .c/.h files do open by default in SlickEdit.

Is there any point in attempting to install the latest SlickEdit Core (Kepler version) to the older Simplicity/Eclipse IDE (e.g., to pickup new features and bug fixes) or is that most certainly not going to work?

Thanks again,
Don

It is not technically supported, but I can't think of any specific dependencies that are 4.3 only.  It may work fine for you, but your mileage may vary.
