RPi commands

This section summarizes the Raspberry Pi commands available to be used with the biicode client program. You can see these tools if you execute:

$ bii -h rpi

    $ bii COMMAND [options]
For help about a command:
    $ bii COMMAND --help
To change verbosity, use options --quiet --verbose

---------EXPERIMENTAL Raspberry Pi general tools commands--------
  rpi:send        Send by scp the bin folder into the specified directory
  rpi:settings    Configure Raspberry Pi project settings
  rpi:ssh         Connect by ssh with the Raspberry Pi

bii rpi:send: send a bin folder

Send your binaries automatically to your Raspberry Pi from your PC.

$ bii rpi:send
Sending with rsync -Pravdtze ssh [HIVE_DIRECTORY]/bin/* [RPI_USER]@[RPI_IP]:[DIRECTORY]/[HIVE_NAME]

[RPI_USER]@[RPI_IP]'s password:

The Raspberry Pi user's password will be asked. If you have not changed your password, for Raspbian the default one is raspberry.

bii rpi:settings: configure your Raspberry Pi settings

This command provides an easy way to configure your Raspberry Pi settings.

$ bii rpi:settings

Define RPI settings for external C/C++ cross-building
If you are working onboard the RPI, you don't need these settings
RPI username (pi): [RPI_USER]
RPI IP Address: [RPI_IP] #example
RPI directory to upload (bin): [RPI_FOLDER] #This folder must exist into your Raspberry Pi.
  • RPI username (pi): Raspberry Pi user name. Default value is pi.
  • RPI IP Address: Raspberry Pi local IP address. Write here your Raspberry Pi network address, that you can find out executing the ifconfig in a console inside the RPi.
  • RPI directory to upload (bin): Raspberry Pi directory where you want your programs to be saved. Default value is the bin user home folder.

Alternatively you can pass your configuration directly into the settings command.

$ bii rpi:settings --user USER --ip IP --directory DIRECTORY

bii rpi:ssh: connect by ssh with the Raspberry Pi

If you want a remotely access to your Raspberry Pi you can get it with this command.

$ bii rpi:ssh
Connecting with ssh <rpi_user>@<rpi_ip>
<rpi_user>@<rpi_ip>'s password:

pi@raspberrypi ~ $

bii configure --toolchain=rpi: enable, disable or change the Raspberry Pi cross compilation.

Use this command to enable Raspberry Pi Cross Compilation.

$ bii configure --toolchain=rpi

If you need the default rpi-toolchain.cmake, execute bii rpi:settings first.

$ bii rpi:settings
$ bii configure --toolchain=rpi

If you want to disable it, use this command.

$ bii configure --toolchain=None

To use a custom tool-chain you need to place it in the bii folder of your project with the name <my_toolchain_name>-toolchain.cmake.

To use it, just pass it as argument of bii configure -t my_toolchain_name.

$ bii configure --toolchain=my_toolchain_name
