Hi all! A few months ago at work I've had to switch from my preferred text editor (Sublime Text) to Atmel Studio to ease development of our current reference design project, and I've found a few things that were bugging me. Since the tools team is a bit tied up with other projects, I've started fixing them myself with a few basic extensions.
They're all open source and if you have any suggestions on things for me to make next, let me know.
Feedback welcome - the titles will give you direct downloads from my site rather than via the Atmel Gallery. That means that you don't need to sign up to download and install them, but you will be getting early beta code rather than the stable versions I push via the gallery. If you don't want potentially unstable code, use the gallery versions instead.
Provides syntax highlighting to LSS files inside Atmel Studio. Makes reading LSS output from the compiler a bit easier.
Provides syntax highlighting to HEX/EEP files inside Atmel Studio. Makes reading HEX output from the compiler a bit easier.
Shows error/warning symbols next to source lines that produce them after a build has completed. Mouse over the icon to see the error/warning text (note: only updates after a build, so will not show Naggy warnings live).
For TINY, MEGA and XMEGA only; shows the maximum amount of stack used in your current debug session, so you can see if you're running out of space.
Shows and sorts the sizes of symbols in your project - i.e. how large your functions and variables are in the final compiled binary. Double click a symbol to jump to it in your code.
Shows an overlay icon on the Windows 7 taskbar showing the last compile result - whether the compilation was successful, failed, in progress or completed with warnings.
