New Framework - Simba #412

Hello guys!

I've been working on an RTOS with a build framework, called Simba, with native, AVR and ARM toolchains, package handler, etc. However, it's useless that I provide my own toolchains and package handlers if Simba could be integrated into PlatformIO instead. If you want to have a look at Simba, see and

I'm sure you wont accept Simba as of today, because it has too few users. In fact there is only two, myself and a collegue of mine... I'm trying to make more people try it as Beta-testers, but no luck so far. PlatformIO would certainly increase the number of users, but maybe it's too early.. that's for you to decide.

And obviously I'll have to make the required changes to Simba to make it fit the PlatformIO framework.

Thanks in advance,

@itsjustvenky I've just started to migrate the Make based build system to Scons. As the first step I simply created one .sconscript-file for every .mk-file to keep the file structure unchanged. If it is the Scons way of structuring a build system, I don't know. It works for now.

The changes are in the commit eerimoq/simba@b93e437.

Anyways, let's keep in touch so we don't make the same changes.

The migration to Scons continued for ARM. All targets except the build target has been left untouched. That is, targets for test, code coverage, static code analysis, etc. I guess those should be migrated as well.

@ivankravets Here is the first implementation. Please have a look at the commit message and the code. There are a few problem that I need help to fix.

What I forgot to write in the commit message was that I do not explicitly import the Scons package in all sconscripts. I think I have to do that so there is no requirement on having scones installed, right?
