  • IoTivity 1.3.1 has been released, and with it comes some important new changes. First, you can rebuild packages from sources, with or without my hotfixes patches, as explained recently in this blog post. For ARM users (of ARTIK7), the fastest option is to download precompiled packages as .RPM for fedora-24 from my personal repository, or check ongoing works for other OS. Copy and paste this snippet to install latest IoTivity from my personal repo:

    I also want to thank JFrog for proposing bintray service to free and open source software developers. Standalone Apps In a previous blog post, I explained how to┬árun examples that are shipped with the release candidate. You can also try with other existing examples (rpm -ql iotivity-test), but some don’t work properly. In those cases, try the 1.3-rel branch, and if you’re still having problems please report a bug. At this point, you should know […]

    Building IoTivity for ARM on ARTIK Devices

    There are several options to build IoTivity for ARM targets or any non x86 hardware, but first you have to decide which operating system you want to use. In this article, I won’t compare OS or devices; instead, I’ll give a couple of hints that apply to ARTIK 5, 7, and 10 devices (not the ARTIK 0 family, which run TizenRT). These steps can also be applied to other single board computers like the Raspberry PI. Build for Tizen with GBS The first and easiest way to build IoTivity is for Tizen, using GBS. This process was explained in a previous article on this blog: An Introduction to Tizen Development on ARTIK For your knowledge, GBS was inspired by Debian’s git-build-package and uses an ARM toolchain that runs in a chrooted ARM environment using QEMU. Both ARTIK boards and the Raspberry Pi are used as Tizen reference platforms. Build for […]

    An Introduction to Tizen Development on ARTIK

    This article is a direct follow up of my previous post about booting Tizen on the ARTIK10. Before starting, you should bookmark this wiki page as an entry point for Tizen on ARTIK devices. At the 2015 Tizen Developer Conference, I had the opportunity to present a tutorial about Tizen platform development; it’s still valid today. This article is very similar but is adapted for ARTIK10 and ARTIK5 configuration. For some context, check out to the following slide deck along with the recorded video on how to patch Tizen and build with GBS for x86a as well as this page about Tizen:Common on VMware. tdc2015-strategy-devel-20150916 from Phil C Tools Setup If you’re familiar with Tizen you probably know about Git Build System (GBS): a very convenient tool to build packages. It’s adapted from Debian’s git-build-package to support zypper repos. First, gbs and some other Tizen tools need to be installed […]
