I agree with @DonAlfredo. There are many exotic platforms where OPM might fail, for example I cannot test on raspberry pi. GTK3 is also under fast development, OPM does not support GTK3 yet.
Fpcupdeluxe has a nice big OPM button, the installation shouldn't take more then a few seconds. I believe this is a perfect solution.

Hey GetMem,

Fpcupdeluxe has a nice big OPM button [snip]

Had, past tense:
Do accommodate this, fpcupdeluxe featured a speedbutton for easy post-install of OPM. Lately, this OPM button has been removed in favor of a Wio and Pico speedbutton.

Cheers,
Gus

OK. True. I should have read the message more carefully. OPM still available via modules though, so not a big deal in my opinion.

Absolutely. Not on the front page above the fold, but yes, still there :)

Regarding embedded.
Latest trunk with uf2 export and FreeRTOS for arm makes FPC really suited for easy embedded production ready products. See included pictures. A very basic datalogger display. Previously, this would have been done in c, now in pascal with FPC and Lazarus ! A breeze.
That looks cool Don, any chance you could write up some sort of HowTo  on the wiki ?  I had no idea it would be possible to use Lazarus in such a project !

@dbannon
It should be as easy as a single click. Use fpcupdeluxe 1.8.2s.
https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/fpcupdeluxe/releases/tag/1.8.2s

Point the install directory towards an empty suitable directory. Click on the Wio button. Sit back and relax and keep fingers crossed. Start the newly installed Lazarus by its new shortcut on your desktop (if all went well). Open an example project in "yourinstalldirectory\ccr\mbf-freertos-wio\SamplesBoardSpecific\WioTerminal\Examples". Compile it and you should have an uf2-file.

If you own a Wio.
Reboot the Wio in program-mode as described. Drop the uf2-file into the Arduino drive. Ready. No programmer needed.
