I just tried Mbed-studio on Ubuntu 20 LTS, overall I am surprised the installation and compilation of a test project went through without any hiccup. Also the compilation speed is a lot faster than on Windows 10.
Window 10, I7-8565U, SSD, 2’50’’
Ubuntu 20 LTS, I7-3630QM, SSD, 1’30’’
The laptop Ubuntu runs on is 5 years older than Windows laptop, and benchmarked at least 20% slower, but still it took 80 seconds less to compile the same project. Presumably, this is due to more efficient file system of linux and no anti-virus getting in the way.
There are two silly issues:
File tree doesn’t automatically update when a file/folder is deleted, the deleted item remains in the tree until its parent folder is collapsed and expanded again.
Files outside current folder are shown unable to include but project can compile. In the attached screenshot, CC13XX.h file is outside of src folder, but cannot be recognized. I probably missed some settings.
If those two issues can be fixed, I think I will have no problem using Mbed-studio on Ubuntu as main dev setup, given the huge speed boost.
