- Mac OS X 10.6.8, 10.7+
- Windows XP+ (built with MinGW & MSYS)
- Linux (most all, primary development on Ubuntu)
- FreeBSD 8.2+
- Raspberry Pi (Raspian)
- BeagleBone (Ubuntu)

- ... just about anything else with Gnu Make & a C-compiler
In general, the
blink1-tool builds as a static binary where possible,
eliminating the need for shared library dependencies on the target.
However, static builds can be problematic for some systems with "different"
libusb implementations, so doing
make EXEFLAGS= will generally build a non-static version.

docker build -t robtec/blink1 .
Running the container
docker run -d --privileged robtec/blink1
