Programming toolkit for ev3dev
This is a GLib/GObject based library that provides a number of programming interfaces for ev3dev, including user interface and device driver interface. It is written in vala, but since it uses GObjects, it can be used with many languages via GObjectIntrospection.
For an example of how it is used, checkout brickman.
This is currently in the development stages and is unstable.
Get the code
This project uses git and git submodules.
git clone --recursive git://github.com/ev3dev/ev3devKit
Cross-compiling for the EV3
This requires that you have Docker installed. (On
Linux, you will also need to install the
cd ev3devKit ./docker/setup.sh $ARCH docker exec --tty ev3devkit_$ARCH make install
armel for the EV3 or
armhf for RPi/BeagleBone.
When the build is completed, copy the files from
build-$ARCH/dist to your EV3.
Compiling for desktop
# include install build depends $ sudo apt-get install cmake valac libgirepository1.0-dev \ libgudev-1.0-dev libgrx-3.0-dev libgtk-3-dev $ cmake -P setup.cmake $ make -C build
When building for the desktop, one can run the demos using
make -C build run<tab>. In
order to run them on the device, copy the demos over or share the folder via NFS
or sshfs with the EV3. When copying them to /home/user, the demos are runable
from the file-browser.
