Developing FreeRTOS applications with third-party code editors and debugging tools

You can use a code editor and a debugging extension or a third-party debugging tool to develop applications for FreeRTOS.

If, for example, you use Visual Studio Code as your code editor, you can install the Cortex-Debug VS Code extension as a debugger. When you finish developing your application, you can invoke the CMake command-line tool to build your project from within VS Code. For more information about using CMake to build FreeRTOS applications, see Building FreeRTOS with CMake.

For debugging, you can provide a VS Code with debug configuration similar to the following:

"configurations": [ { "name": "Cortex Debug", "cwd": "${workspaceRoot}", "executable": "./build/st/stm32l475_discovery/aws_demos.elf", "request": "launch", "type": "cortex-debug", "servertype": "stutil" } ]
