What will it take to support the LPC824 µC, i.e. the Tinker Pico, from the Arduino IDE?

As the Arduino IDE has been evolving and growing over the years, more and more µC platforms have been added - both officially and unofficially - after the initial ATmega µC’s. One of the earlier ones was Energia, which was created as a fork to support TI’s MSP430 chips, but as the IDE matured, it has become easier to support several other architectures in the mainstream build as a simple add-on, such as ESP8266 and STM32.

Sooo… let’s try and find out how hard it would be to include our LPC824 µC into the mix:

Update: the following two articles are postponed to next week. Sorry for the bad planning:

So far, this is merely an exploration, as I said. A complete port will take considerably more effort. I’m also considering moving a bit beyond the digitalRead/Write conventions…
