Hi,

Until now I used to use Eclipse a lot as well but having installed the ESP32 toolkit with Eclipse I did get to know a bit more about it as you have to get it up and running via command line first before you can use integrate it with Eclipse. Having done that you don't need to know much about makefiles etc... but I was curious how it all works so I caught on to some of it.

As mentioned It enabled me to combine VSCODE with the build tools instead of Eclipse which I have been using for almost a year or so for ESP32 development.

The main advantage of that is that VSCODE works a lot faster and if you play it right with some ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES you can use exactly the same JSON configuration files for VSCODE on all platforms ( Windows, Linux and MAC OS ) to build the ESP32 application(s). No need to change a single letter in them.

As to your question: I am building the Raspberry PI application on a Windows 10 machine but I am using MSYS2 which creates a MinGW32/64 shell on a windows machine so that you can run Linux style build tools ( like GCC or a GCC cross compiler ) on your Windows machine.

For now I am simply using the command line in the MinGW32 shell to run the make command.
Tomorrow I will be testing if it actually runs on the Raspberry PI and try to remote debug it using gdbserver on the PI and a gdb client on the Mingw32 side. If that works using VSCODE to provide an IDE like system to build/debug it all should be a piece of cake as VSCODE provides support for all of that.

If it all works I will publish an article on how to do it all, then there will be an overview on how to cross compile from a Windows/Linux/OS-X host on a Raspberry PI target that keeps the KISS principle in mind.
