Generate Code

When done, before generating the code, click Save MPLAB® Harmony Configurator (MHC) State. 

Save MHC State

Click on the Generate Code button to start generating code. 

Click on the Generate Code button

Click on the Generate button in the Generate Project window, keeping the default settings.

Click on the Generate button in the Generate Project window

As the code is generated, MHC displays the progress.

Examine the generated code. 

Generated code tree is displayed

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

In the generated code, notice the Peripheral Library (PLIB) files generated for SERCOM2 as I²C, Universal Synchronous Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (SERCOM4 as USART), and PORT peripherals. Also, notice the generated files for USART, I²C Drivers synchronous drivers, and the necessary files for selected RTOS (FreeRTOS).

MHC also generates the template main file (main_c21.c), the application thread files (app_eeprom_thread.capp_sensor_thread.c, and app_user_input_thread.c) for the EEPROM, sensor, and user input threads.

Navigate to the Projects tab to view the project tree structure.
Build the code by clicking on the Clean and Build button build button and verify that the project builds successfully. At this point, you are ready to start implementing your application code.
