    How to Run IoT.js on the Raspberry PI 0

    IoT.js is a lightweight JavaScript platform for building Internet of Things devices; this article will show you how to run it on a few dollars worth of hardware. The First version of it was released last year for various platforms including Linux, Tizen, and NuttX (the base of Tizen:RT). The Raspberry Pi 2 is one of the reference targets, but for demo purposes we also tried to build for the Raspberry Pi Zero, which is the most limited and cheapest device of the family. The main difference is the CPU architecture, which is ARMv6 (like the Pi 1), while the Pi 2 is ARMv7, and the Pi 3 is ARMv8 (aka ARM64). IoT.js upstream uses a python helper script to crossbuild for supported devices, but instead of adding support to new device I tried to build on the device using native tools with cmake and the default compiler options; it […]

    Open Source Eats Governance, and More. This Week in Open Source

    Open Source Wrap Up: November 1 – 6, 2015 Linux Foundation Launches Open API Initiative The Linux Foundation continues to expand their reach in the tech industry by launching the Open API Initiative (OAI) aimed at creating a vendor neutral, portable, open specification for providing metadata for RESTful APIs.┬áThis specification will be built on top of Swagger: a description system that makes APIs autodiscoverable and self-documenting. Open APIs have become a key component when creating new technologies, and are particularly important for sectors like the banking and health care industries. Any effort to improve standardization will certainly be valuable. More information can be found at the project home page.

  • Open Source Wrap Up: May 20 – June 5, 2014 Automotive Grade Linux Released Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) is a collaborative environment to bring a Linux software stack to the connected car. The project has released its own open source In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) software that features a dashboard, home screen, navigation map, media playback, audio controls, and more. Each feature also includes detailed design requirement documents with descriptions, use cases, graphical assets, and architecture diagrams, all available on the project wiki. Moving forward, the project will focus on developing standardized instruments clusters in an effort to expand the role of AGL into more aspects of the car ecosystem as a part of the push towards autonomous cars.
