New firmware and changes in build process
Jun 2, 2018
I’ve started to work on some additional firmwares. Since they’re not complete I changed the structure of the repositories and added branches. Most importantly, the development branch.
My inspiration is from this site where Vincent explains a good approach.
Development is now done in the development branch (of course).
The build process has been modified slightly as well. All successful build images are now placed in
builds which makes it easier to locate them.
A new firmware is on its way. This time it’s with a small OLED display allowing students to provide information (such as values) in a convenient location
Platformio allows to invoke extra scripts in the build process. I use a python script to move the
firmware.bin files to a common
builds directory instead of leaving them in the default
.pioenvs directory. This makes it easier to locate and upload the firmware.
