Building using arduino
To install the libraries:
- copy Library Directories to your \arduino\hardware\libraries\ or arduino\libraries directory
- Restart arduino IDE
* Each library comes with a simple example. You can find the examples in menu File->Examples
Building using make
- go to directory of sketch and type "make".
--type "make upload" to upload according to the parameters in .
Building using cmake
- cd ArduPlane (ArduCopter etc ..)
- mkdir build
- cd build
- cmake .. -DAPM_BOARD=mega -DAPM_PORT=/dev/ttyUSB0
You can select from mega/mega2560.
If you have arduino installed in a non-standard location you by specify it by using:
-DARDUINO_SDK_PATH=/path/to/arduino ..
- make (will build the sketch)
- make ArduPlane-upload (will upload the sketch ArduPlane etc.)
If you have a sync error during upload reset the board or power cycle the board
before the upload starts.
Building using eclipse
Getting the Source:
assuming source located here: /home/name/apm-src
You can either download it or grab it from git:
git clone /home/name/apm-src
Generating the Eclipse Project for Your System:
mkdir /home/name/apm-build
cd /home/name/apm-build
cmake -G"Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ../apm-src -D BOARD=mega -D PORT=/dev/ttyUSB0
Here apm-src can be any sketch, ArduPlane/ ArduCopter etc.
Note: Unix can be substituted for MinGW/ MSYS/ NMake (for windows)
input options:
PORT is the port for uploading to the board, COM0 etc on windows. /dev/ttyUSB0 etc. on linux
BOARD is your board type, mega for the 1280 or mega2560 for the 2560 boards.
ARDUINO_SDK_PATH if it is not in default path can specify as /path/to/arduino
Importing the Eclipse Build Project:
Import project using Menu File->Import
Select General->Existing projects into workspace:
Browse where your build tree is and select the root build tree directory.
Keep "Copy projects into workspace" unchecked.
You get a fully functional eclipse project
Importing the Eclipse Source Project:
You can also import the source repository (/home/name/apm-src) if you want to modify the source/ commit using git.
Settings up Eclipse to Recognize PDE files:
Window > Preferences > General > Content Types. This tree associates a
filename or filename pattern with its content type so that tools can treat it
properly. Source and header files for most languages are under the Text tree.
Add "*.pde" as a C++ Source.
Right click on source project -> Properties -> Project References -> apm-build Project
* Regenerating the eclipse source project file:
cmake -G"Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" -DECLIPSE_CDT4_GENERATE_SOURCE_PROJECT=TRUE /home/name/apm-src
Build a package using cpack
- cd build
- cmake ..
- make package
- make package_source
