Installation

Biicode is a file-oriented Dependencies Manager for C and C++ developers. Install both Biicode and the Arduino tools to get started.

Install Biicode

Download Biicode Installer and double-click the downloaded package to install it.

Open the terminal and make sure biicode is installed:

~$ bii --version

Install Arduino tools

To start, install required tools like CMake or GCC:

$ bii setup:arduino

Avoid Arduino's SDK installation if you've got it installed already. Re-run bii setup:arduino command to verify everything is installed.

Any issues, contact us at our forum, and feel free to ask any questions.

Install Arduino tools manually

Install, set up and verify some tools to build Arduino projects with biicode.

Follow these steps if something failed during the automatic installation explained before. If you experience any issues, please contact us at our forum, we'll try to solve your problem as soon as possible.

.. rst-class:: tabs-title

    Linux

Install the required development tools as root:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake

That's all!

.. rst-class:: tabs-title

    MacOS

You need to get installed both XCode Developer Tools and CMake:

  1. The XCode Developer Tools

    $ xcode-select --install
  2. Download and install CMake for your Mac OSX.

.. rst-class:: tabs-title

    Windows

  1. Download and install CMake. You can download the latest version of CMake here.
  1. Add to your user PATH environment variable the path to CMake. We recommend Rapid Environment Editor for editing environment variables. Otherwise, go to My Computer, click Properties, click Advanced System Settings and in the System Properties window click the Environment Variables button. then you will see a new window and in User Variables you'll find the variable PATH:

    /_static/img/cpp_windows_path.png

Add CMake binaries folders (i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\CMake\bin).

You might need to close and open again any cmd windows in order to load the new value for the PATH variable.

Now, you can check CMake is working properly. Open a terminal window and run the following command:

$ cmake --version

If the output message looks similar to this, CMake is successfully installed.

cmake version [version]

Install Arduino SDK manually

Download the Arduino software first, it is important to choose a SDK compatible with your board. If you need more info visit the official Arduino website.

If you have any questions, we are available at biicode's forum. You can also write us for suggestions and feedback.
