How to include static librarys into esp-idf with eclipse?

Postby MajinFoo » Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:11 pm

Hello,

i have an external library as an .a file that i want to include into my eclipse project. I followed this guide to use esp-idf with eclipse:
https://esp-idf.readthedocs.io/en/v2.0/ ... setup.html

My project structure look like this:
Image

As you can see I have created a separate folder "src" for the external files. Besides my .a file i have also a .h file and a .c file. I have included the directory in the project settings as shown in the figure below:

When I try to build the project, I get the following error message:

Code: Select all

Looks like the directory wasn't correctly included. If I put the files in the main folder instead and specify the main folder as an include path, then the files will be linked:

Why does it only work with the main folder? If I compile now, I get the following error messages:

It looks like my .c and .h files have now been linked. But some functions cannot be called because the reference to the .a file is missing. First i try to include the .a file with eclipse. As far as I know this can be done via the project properties:

Properties --> C/C++ Build --> Settings

But here there is no possibility to include files or directories, as you can see in the picture below:

Image

In Properties --> C/C++ build I check "Generate Makefiles Automatically".

After this i went back to Properties --> C/C++ Build --> Settings. Now i can include the .a file:

When I compile now, I get the following error message:

Code: Select all

21:58:39 **** Build of configuration Default for project BME680BESEC ****
make flash 
make: *** No rule to create "flash".  End.
I uncheck "Generate Makefiles Automatically" and tried to find another solution. Next I tried to use the file component. mk in the main folder to include the a. file. I added the following line:

Code: Select all

COMPONENT_ADD_LDFLAGS=/home/UserName/esp/workspace/ProjectName/main/libalgobsec.a
If I compile now, I get a new error message:

I wonder why there are error messages in the libesp32.a file, which is not related to my libalgobsec.a file.

I really have no idea how to correctly integrate the external library. Maybe my understanding of the build process in Eclipse and esp-idf is too poor to solve this problem.

I hope I could explain my problem clearly. Can anyone tell me how to integrate an external library?

I ran into the same issue with libalgobsec.a using command line tools (no eclipse). Were you able to resolve this issue?

I added the following lines to my component.mk:

COMPONENT_ADD_INCLUDEDIRS := ./lib
COMPONENT_ADD_LDFLAGS = -L$(COMPONENT_PATH)/lib/ -lalgobsec -l$(COMPONENT_NAME)


This the error I get:

I managed to solve the issue by:

1 - Firstly saving the libalgobsec.a file to the same folder as the component.mk file.

2 - Then, adding the following line to component.mk

Code: Select all

COMPONENT_ADD_LDFLAGS +=$(COMPONENT_PATH)/libalgobsec.a
3 - Finally I had to change the app_main declaration from void to int

Code: Select all

int app_main(void)
{
	...
	...
	...
	
	return 0;
}
That solved the issues for me. Can anybody explain why? :?: :?:
