Re: IDE / Debugging

Thanks for the suggestion Justin.

Haha, by old school, I meant they are very far removed from CLI
debugging through gdb (which is what I'm used to) as they've been
using tools like IAR for a while. So maybe not old school, but maybe

so quick to call them old-school. A professional firmware engineer knows the
value of a debugger, and frankly shouldn't be without it.

Hi All,

I'm trying to convince my company to switch to Zephyr, but the lack of
an actual IDE with a nice graphical debugger startles them (these are
old-school type firmware people who have gotten used to IDEs).

Is there anything people are doing? The biggest stopper is probably
the graphical debugging ability that they may lose e.g. IAR.
Preferably something on Windows (so no ddd unless WSL quickly gets to
a better place with USB support).
