Flashing custom partitions from Eclipse

Postby gunar.kroeger » Thu Jan 03, 2019 7:41 pm

Hi,
I use a custom partition to allow for spiffs and OTA updates.
This means I can not use the "Build Targets - > flash" like the docs recommend.

So far I have been flashing each partitions bin file to the correct address using mingw32 command:

Code: Select all

python C:/msys32/home/gunar.kroeger/esp/esp-idf/components/esptool_py/esptool/esptool.py --chip esp32 --port COM4 --baud 921600 --before default_reset --after hard_reset write_flash -z --flash_mode dio --flash_freq 40m --flash_size detect 0xd000 C:/Users/gunar.kroeger/Desktop/eclipse/ESP32_Updater/build/ota_data_initial.bin 0x1000 C:/Users/gunar.kroeger/Desktop/eclipse/ESP32_Updater/build/bootloader/bootloader.bin 0x10000 C:/Users/gunar.kroeger/Desktop/eclipse/ESP32_Updater/build/ESP32_Updater.bin 0x90000 C:/Users/gunar.kroeger/Desktop/eclipse/ESP32_AOLT/build/ESP32_AOLT.bin 0x8000 C:/Users/gunar.kroeger/Desktop/eclipse/ESP32_Updater/build/partitions.bin
Is it possible to call this function from inside eclipse Build Targets or something similar?

Thanks

happy new year gunar,

you can try to add an entry in your project Makefile,
for testings like this

suggestion1.jpg (186.18 KiB) Viewed 352 times
and create the target like you do it usually and call it.

if this work's for you, then try next step and create a simple python script, example in the c:/sc folder and name it example test.py
same doing then, append an entry in your Project Make File and create the target for it and test it by call it ( double click on the target ) like this

if this works again for you , final add your python call in the Projekt Make file and make an entry in the target for it and run it
like this

not sure, this is the simplest way - but it can work for you.
hope this helps

best wishes
