Emuflight Configurator

Emuflight

Emuflight Configurator is a crossplatform configuration tool for the Emuflight flight control system.

It runs as an app within Google Chrome and allows you to configure the Emuflight software running on any supported Emuflight target.

There is also now a standalone version available, since Google Chrome Apps are getting deprecated on platforms that aren't Chrome OS. Downloads are available in Releases.

Various types of aircraft are supported by the tool and by Emuflight, e.g. quadcopters, hexacopters, octocopters and fixed-wing aircraft.

Authors

Emuflight Configurator is a fork of the Cleanflight Configurator with support for Emuflight instead of Cleanflight.

This configurator is the only configurator with support for Emuflight specific features. It will likely require that you run the latest firmware on the flight controller. If you are experiencing any problems please make sure you are running the latest firmware version.

Installation

Standalone

Build Status

This is the default installation method, and at some point in the future this will become the only way available for most platforms. Please use this method whenever possible.

Download the installer from Releases.

Unstable Testing Versions

Not available at this time.

Development

Environment Setup

  1. Install node.js
  2. Install yarn: npm install yarn -g
  3. Change to project folder and run yarn install.
  4. Run yarn start.

Running tests

yarn test

App build and release

The tasks are defined in gulpfile.js and can be run with through yarn:

yarn gulp <taskname> [[platform] [platform] ...]

List of possible values of <task-name>:

  • dist copies all the JS and CSS files in the ./dist folder.
  • apps builds the apps in the ./apps folder [1].
  • debug builds debug version of the apps in the ./debug folder [1].
  • release zips up the apps into individual archives in the ./release folder [1].

[1] Running this task on macOS or Linux requires Wine, since it's needed to set the icon for the Windows app (build for specific platform to avoid errors).

Build or release app for one specific platform

To build or release only for one specific platform you can append the plaform after the task-name. If no platform is provided, all the platforms will be done in sequence.

  • MacOS use yarn gulp <task-name> --osx64
  • Linux use yarn gulp <task-name> --linux64
  • Windows use yarn gulp <task-name> --win32
  • ChromeOS use yarn gulp <task-name> --chromeos

You can also use multiple platforms e.g. yarn gulp <taskname> --osx64 --linux64.

Languages

Emuflight Configurator has been translated into several languages. The application will try to detect and use your system language if a translation into this language is available.

If you prefer to have the application in English or any other language, you can select your desired language in the options menu of the application.

Notes

WebGL

Make sure Settings -> System -> "User hardware acceleration when available" is checked to achieve the best performance
