MPLAB® Harmony 3 Content Manager

MPLAB® Harmony 3 is an extension of the MPLAB® ecosystem for creating embedded firmware solutions for Microchip 32-bit SAM and PIC microcontroller and microprocessor devices. Refer to the following links for more information.

This repository contains the implementation of the MPLAB® Harmony 3 Content Manager tool (MHCM). The MHCM is an easy to use development tool with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that simplifies the manipulation of MPLAB® Harmony Content. The MHCM is available as a plugin that directly integrates with the MPLAB® X IDE or as a separate Java executable for standalone use with other development environments.

The MHCM includes a downloader tool that reads an online catalog of MPLAB Harmony 3 library packages so that the developers can select and download the libraries in which they are interested. It includes also an Application Browser allowing to copy selected application(s) to any location on your machine.
