This version adds many small improvements to the integrated state diagram editor.
- Code editor window is not always on top
- A larger font in the state diagram used by default. The size can be configured in the configuration file.
- Improved layout (larger distance between states) to increase readably of transition texts
- The configuration file is now searched locally and then in the users home directory. If the location was given as command line it has always priority.
- Some IDEs do treat files ending in
cfgin a special way. Therefore the codegen configuration file can also be named
- Many more …

20.9.2017 | QuickStart tutorial on how to use the code generator with Energia on GitHub
Energia is based on the Arduino IDE and is a great IDE for processors form Texas Instruments. The new example on GitHub shows the integration of code generated from the sinelabore code generator into the Energia IDE. What does the demo do: The flash frequency of the green LED on the MSP430FR5969 LaunchPad can be controlled. A minimal timer and queueing lib is used as basis to be prepared for much more challenging tasks. You will see the benefit of state machine modeling over direct coding. Take a look at the state diagrams and the generated code here! Or download the example and try it out yourself.
