SEGGER J-Link programmers/debuggers are very common SWD tools. It looks like we need a platformio “tool” to download the binaries from segger so that a custom platform can be made to use it. I’d like to take a stab at this but I’m not sure where to start.
There are docs for how to make custom platforms/frameworks and boards but none for custom tools as far as I can find.
I tried to find the source for
tool-avrdude as a place to start and was also unsuccessful there.
Could someone point me in the right direction?
~/.platformio/platforms folders. Each development platform has
platform.json manifest file where all package dependencies are defined.
Thanks for that information.
Some more related questions:
- Where is the canonical source of
tool-avrdude? I’m not talking about
avrdude’s source. Where in the PIO codebase is are the instructions for installing
tool-avrdude? Where does it download from? I can’t find it on github or PlatformIO Registry
- Where is all this
giveio stuff in
~\.platformio\packages\tool-avrdude\ on Windows coming from?
- How would I eventually “publish” a tool or platform?
PIO has own package manager and registry. See BinTray storage: Service End for Bintray, JCenter, GoCenter, and ChartCenter | JFrog
You can define own storage or package location. See Custom Development Platforms — PlatformIO latest documentation and
