It is possible to start writing Vivado HLS code without having Vivado Design Suite installed, using Visual Studio.
It also allows for easy debugging.
Where can I find the standalone library package?
Starting with release 2012.3, all of the include files required to compile HLS code are available for use in Visual Studio.
The package xilinx_hls_lib_<release_number>.tgz is shipped in the include directory of the tool.
However, from release 2013.3 onward the package file xilinx_hls_lib_<release_number>.tgz is not included in the Vivado HLS installation.
Instead, you can include the directories "Vivado_HLS\<release_number>\include" and "Vivado_HLS\<release_number>\include\etc".
