This tutorial shows instructions with MHC as the GUI tool. MPLAB Harmony v3 is now configurable through MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC). Visit this page to see the same tutorial page with instructions using MCC as the GUI tool
This page shows you how to create a new MPLAB® Harmony project from scratch.
Before doing this, you'll need to do the following:
- Install the MPLAB X IDE
- Install the XC32 C compiler
- Install the MPLAB Harmony Configurator
- Download the MPLAB Harmony Framework
If you would rather learn how to open one of the many demonstration application projects that are included in the Harmony framework, visit this page.
|Location||Choose a folder to hold your project. You'll probably want to dedicate the framework download folder for framework files only, so do not choose that.|
|Folder||Choose an MPLAB X physical project name.|
|Name||Choose an MPLAB X logical project name (this can be different from the physical name).|
|Path||You cannot change this. It's generated by the selections above.|
To get a better understanding, click on the Show Visual Help button for an explanation.
Your new project will open in the IDE and the MPLAB Harmony Configurator will automatically start. Keep the default values in the Configuration Database Setup window and click the Launch button.
