Checking Out Submodules

ChibiOS, libopencm3, libsbp and libswiftnav are submodules of this git repository. Check them out using:

git submodule update --init

Remember to run git submodule update after pulling in the latest changes to ensure all the submodules are in sync.


There are a few options:

  • Normal usage. If you're only using the Piksi console, binary installers (Windows and OS X) are here and source for the console can be found in piksi_tools.

  • Development (native). To install dependencies for the development tools on your platform (OS X, Ubuntu, or Debian), run the setup script in this repository via bash -x install. If you're also building the firmware, you'll need to checkout the submodules as well.

  • Development (VM). The Vagrant file is currently used for testing installation, but can also be used to provision a development VM. To do so, you will need to download VirtualBox and Vagrant, and then run vagrant up trusty in this repository.
