First, love the Lua Development Tool IDE. Well thought out and very easy to use for a newbie to Lua. Kudos!

Is it possible to include NodeMCU (needed for ESP8266 wireless device programming) as a plugin/library?

If anyone has successfully accomplished this I would greatly appreciate some step by step assistance for a Windows OS (assume I know 0.000% about each step, not kidding) .

If this is not feasible, I can use other IDEs but I really have enjoyed using the LDT.

Thanks in advance!

There is a forum dedicated to Lua tools; you can find it from the Forums home page, under the category Eclipse Projects. Here's the direct link for future reference: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/f/221/
I'll move this message there for you.

Thank you Eric for moving this to the proper location. Hopefully someone knows if this is possible or not.

Hi Mike,
I don't know so much about NodeMCU, but I see it was based on eLua and does not rely on luasocket, this means that it will be difficult to reuse debugger and launch configuration out of the box.
In theory this should be possible to implement your own transport layer based on the TCP/IP lib embedded with NodeMCU.
But this will not be so easy ^^.
(see transport parameters : https://wiki.eclipse.org/LDT/User_Area/User_Guide#transport_parameter)
(see interface to implement : http://git.eclipse.org/c/ldt/org.eclipse.ldt.git/tree/libraries/luadbgpclient/debugger/transport/fake.lua)

For user-assistance (conten-assist ...), if you want more than just Lua 5.1 assist, you need to create the corresponding execution environment. (Ideally this should be NodeMCU which should provide the execution environment, maybe you could ask them Wink)
(see https://wiki.eclipse.org/LDT/User_Area/Execution_Environment_file_format)

Simon

Hi,
I had the same question and looked for a solution, but didn't find one.
So I decided to start a project for NodeMCU Integration into LDT as an new Execution Environment.
My project adds support for autocompletion only - no debugging!
As NodeMCU is open source and the documentation at http://nodemcu.readthedocs.io is really good, it's possible to create a NodeMCU Execution Environment.

So the answer to the question is: Yes you can add NodeMCU to LDT / Eclipse.
Please check out my repository at https://github.com/prikril/ldt-nodemcu
Check the readme.md to see which NodeMCU modules are integrated.
@Mike Wurlitzer You will also find a installation guide there.

If you want, you can help by opening issues and sending pull requests.

Hope you like my project Smile
Dominik
