Build System

User’s Makefile

Package building scenarios are written in GNU Make and the build system provides additional features that enable automatic connection of required toolchains. This allows the developer to stay in a familiar environment as if he was working to build programs for his PC, rather than cross-environment.

Package Tools

This is a set of utilities for package management on the target machines or devices as well as during the system build process to complete the temporary root file system for development and testing purposes. This tool supports the processing of inter-package dependencies during the system installation.

Build System

The Build System supports to create system boot images for several target devices with different architectures in parallel with high building speed which allows to completely create at least five packages in minute on a single build server. The caсhing of the intermediate results allows to speed up the build process in several times.
