Icestudio is available on GNU/Linux, Windows and macOS.


Since this repository is a proof of concept built on top of FPGAwars/icestudio, no regular/tagged releases are available yet. However, after each commit is pushed, CI workflows produce nightly builds for all the supported platforms.

Users can pick artifacts from pre-release nightly or from any of the successful jobs in juanmard/icestudio/actions.
