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.

For additional details about the toolchain installation, please see .
