As the code is generated, MPLAB® Harmony Configurator (MHC) displays the progress.

Examine the generated code.


MHC will include all the MPLAB Harmony library files and generate the code based on the MHC selections. The generated code will add files and folders to your Harmony project as shown. 

Among the generated code, notice the Peripheral Library (PLIB) files generated for the I²C1, UART6, and PORT peripherals. Also, notice the generated files for the USART, I²C synchronous drivers, USB High-Speed driver, USB Host middleware, and File System Service and the necessary files for the selected RTOS (FreeRTOS). 

MHC also generates the template main file (main_pic32mz.c), the application thread files (app_eeprom_thread.capp_sensor_thread.capp_usb_thread.c, and app_user_input_thread.c) for the EEPROM, sensor, USB, and user input threads.

Navigate to the Projects tab to view the project tree structure.

Build the code. 

Click on the Clean and Build button build_icon.png and verify that the project builds successfully. At this point, you are ready to start implementing your application code.
