Generate Code

By default, the Autosave MPLAB® Code Configuration (MCC) configuration file option is enabled. That means MCC automatically saves your MCC configurations.

MCC Options window Plugins tab

Now, generate the code by using MCC. From the left side tab, Resource Management (MCC), go to Project Resources and click on the Generate button.

MCC Project Resources Generate button

Navigate to the Projects tab in MPLAB X IDE to view the project tree structure.

Examine the generated code. 

Generated code tree is displayed

MCC will include all the MPLAB Harmony library files and generate the code based on the MCC selections. The generated code would add files and folders to your MPLAB 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™).

MCC 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.

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