EFI Toolkit

The EDKII-EADK is replacing the EFI Toolkit. It is recommended that you use this EDK II Project instead of the EFI Toolkit since it is no longer supported.

Unmaintained project for reference only

The EFI Toolkit is a set of tools that support rapid porting and development of EFI applications, and promote a uniform pre-boot environment on 32 and 64 bit based platforms. The components are released as reference source code. Some components are meant to be stand alone and run on UEFI/EFI compliant systems and some components will require running on the EFI shell. The EFI Toolkit is released under the BSD License, and the Python code is released under PSF License.

Working with the EFI Toolkit

The EFI Toolkit package enables rapid development of EFI based applications, protocols, device drivers, EFI shells, and OS loaders on IA-32, IA-64(IPF) and Intel 64(EM64T or X64) platforms. It provides libraries and samples for using native EFI services, as well as portability libraries that make it easy to port or write Unix/POSIX style programs.
