MightyOhm points out this tutorial covering some basic setup for using the Eclipse programming software with AVR chips. If you’re not familiar, Eclipse is a cross-platform open-source development environment that uses plugins to expand compatibility with different coding languages. The AVR plugin can be found here and the software can even be configured to make use of the Arduino library.

I was actually just discussing Eclipse + AVR/Arduino with my brother just last week – but have yet to give it a go myself. So I’m wondering – any code-makers out there using the combo? If so, please give your take in the comments.
