distortosTemplateSubfolder Build Status

Project template for distortos - an advanced real-time operating system for deeply embedded targets.

In this template distortos is located in a subfolder of the project. This subfolder can be a git submodule (as in this repository) or an extracted source package. Such structure may look like this:

├── applicationFolder1/
│   ├── someFile1.cpp
│   ...
├── applicationFolder2/
│   ├── someFile2.cpp
│   ...
├── distortos/           <-- subfolder with distortos
│   ├── ...
│   ├── include/
│   ├── scripts/
│   ├── source/
│   ├── ...
│   ...
├── someOtherFolder/
│   ├── otherFile.cpp
│   ...
├── ...
├── main.cpp
├── Makefile
├── topFile1.cpp
├── topFile2.cpp
├── ...
├── Tupfile.lua
├── Tuprules.lua
└── ...

Subfolder with distortos can have any name and can be located anywhere in your project - this can be configured in top-level Makefile or Tuprules.lua of this template with DISTORTOS_PATH variable.

Configuration & building

  1. Download source package of this template and extract it;
  2. Download source package of distortos and extract it somewhere inside the template;
  3. Configure path to sources of distortos in DISTORTOS_PATH variable in top-level Makefile (if you use GNU Make) or Tuprules.lua (if you use tup); You can skip this step if this path is distortos/, as this is the default value;
  4. Configure distortos - you can either create new configuration (with make menuconfig) or use an existing one;
  5. Execute make configure CONFIG_PATH=<> to select the configuration you created/chose above;
  6. Execute make (if you use GNU Make) or tup (if you use tup);

Alternatively you can replace steps 1 and 2 with just git clone --recursive In such scenario you can also skip step 3. To update distortos submodule to latest version use git submodule update --remote command.

If you downloaded versioned source package from, then you may skip first three steps - releases already contain sources of distortos in default path.

Quick example

Following commands may be executed in POSIX-compatible shell (e.g. Bash).

1. Download

Download and extract latest project template with latest distortos:

$ wget -O
$ unzip -q
$ wget -O
$ unzip -q -d distortosTemplateSubfolder-master
$ cd distortosTemplateSubfolder-master
$ mv -T distortos-master/ distortos/

or clone the repository:

$ git clone --recursive
$ cd distortosTemplateSubfolder

or download and extract latest released project template:

$ wget
$ tar -xf distortosTemplateSubfolder-20161124.tar.xz
$ cd distortosTemplateSubfolder-20161124

2. Configure

Either use one of existing configurations:

$ make configure CONFIG_PATH=distortos/configurations/STM32F4DISCOVERY/test

or create a new one from scratch:

$ make menuconfig
... edit some options, save the configuration as ...
$ make configure

3. Build

Build the project with make:

$ make

or do the same with tup:

$ tup

4. Edit configuration & rebuild

To edit any option in the selected configuration just run kconfig tool again:

$ make menuconfig
... edit some options, overwrite configuration file ...

You can rebuild the project immediatelly by running make:

$ make

or tup:

$ tup
