I have a board that I am developing several CCS projects. To work with the board, I have a set of libraries that I have to include, so I have to set the build options (i.e. macros, include path, file search path, etc.) everytime I create a new project. I know that I can create a project template so that I can import these build options (and that really isn't a bad solution), however, I prefer if there was a way to set up a workspace that is specific to my board and that would have my build settings set for any project in that workspace. Does anyone know if this is possible?
Again, I want to modify the workspace, and I don't want to have to have a project template or an options file. I'm mostly looking to see if this is possible, and if it isn't, I'll just continue to use a project template.
Thank you in advance
Nope, there is no way to set project build options at a workspace level. Sorry...
The templates are your best option in this case.
your other option is to set these at the workspace level. So if some or all of these projects are in the same workspace this will save you repeated setup/import.
This wiki outlines the procedure for both levels (project and workspace)
Hope this helps clarify.
I should clarify, my post was regarding the build variables and include paths.
Thank you Rafael and Lisa. I should have clarified that I am using CCSv4.2.3, so in my case it appears that Templates are my only option. I'm glad that this issue was at least partially addressed in CCSv5, because the Project Templates seem very complicated.
Thank you again.
no worries, that's what we're here for and all the best with development.
