ATTiny85 and Arduino IDE

I saw a video on YouTube about programming ATTiny85 chips (or, indeed Atmel chips in general, including the Arduino]s chip) using avr-gcc and avrdude on a Pi.

Another popular way of programming ATTiny85 chips is to use an Arduino and its IDE as an ISP.

The Arduino IDE seems more capable than avr-gcc in the scope of its libraries, even for ATTiny85 chips.

This got me to thinking: is there a way of using the Arduino IDE to compile code for ATTiny85 code, and then using avrdude to transfer it onto the chip using a Pi and GPIO pins, eliminating the Arduino entirely.

I've never heard of anyone exploring this idea, but it seems tantalizingly possible.

I think your thinking of something like this ... figuration
Just replace the arduino board with the ATTiny85 it can also be programmed using SPI.
