Added needed binaries for Raspberry Pi 3 ARMv7 into tools

Post by RogerClark » Mon Jul 03, 2017 6:34 am

See https://github.com/rogerclarkmelbourne/ ... 2/pull/283

This adds the RPI compiler etc and tools to the repo

The problem with this, is that it adds a large number of files to the repo which will not be used by the majority of people (239 new files)

Additionally I don't personally have time to test it, and I don't think anyone else has tested it apart from the author

Has anyone else tried this?
I know that vast majority of people won't develop on Raspberry Pi, and there are many files in the commit, but it's only 2,35MB.
My opinion is that it is not so big - on the other hand, most people won't use it anyway.
I leave it to your consideration, whether to keep it.
For me it was an experience about compiling the tools from scratch on RPi. ;)
Sorry for my poor english.

but from one year we have the Official ArduinoIDE ARM version
https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

It's born for RPI, BeagleBone, etc
it's not enough ?

I don't know if the PR includes the compiler binaries or just the tools etc

The Arduino.cc install will just provide the compiler and not the stlink compatibility

We as a community and Roger as a unique contributor, have a limited amount of resources available. We should use those wisely. The RPi route can take too much of those related to the benefits for the community. For me, RPi is the target and not the development platform.
