I want to be able to build my application in one of 3 different configurations, and then upload to a device later from within a docker container. I can see no reason for the upload logic to be aware of which of the 3 configurations was used to build the software, and I’d like to keep it agnostic.
I customise the build by passing in some build flags using PLATFORMIO_BUILD_FLAGS:
export PLATFORMIO_BUILD_FLAGS="-DSOME_FLAG -DSOME_OTHER_FLAG" pio run -e app
This works just fine, and if I upload the binary from the same context with:
pio run -e app -t nobuild -t upload --upload-port /dev/ttyACMx
it will upload no problem.
However, if I try to run the upload from somewhere PLATFORMIO_BUILD_FLAGS isn’t defined, or does not match what it was at build time, my build artefacts are deleted:
export PLATFORMIO_BUILD_FLAGS="" pio run -e app -t nobuild -t upload --upload-port /dev/ttyACMx
and the upload will fail with a message like:
*** [nobuild] Source
.pio/build/app/firmware.bin' not found, needed by targetnobuild’.
So my question is:
Is there a way to tell pio to just upload the app. Not to check checksums, or build flags or anything. Just upload the binary?
thanks for reading
