CrossPack for AVR Development is a development environment for Atmel's AVR microcontrollers running on Apple's OS X, similar to AVR Studio on Windows. It consists of the GNU compiler suite, a C library for the AVR, the AVRDUDE downloader and several other useful tools.

This repository contains a shell script which downloads the source code of all required packages, compiles them, builds an installer package and wraps it into a disk image, ready for distribution. It also contains resources such as a project template, manual etc.
