Chapter 5. Creating, Developing, and Deploying on the Raspberry Pi

In this chapter, we will cover the basic concept of Yocto/OE in order to integrate a custom application with the Raspberry Pi. We will learn how to generate an SDK for a cross-compiling application. We'll also discuss package management.

After that, we will create our own application and recipe in order to deploy it on the Raspberry Pi through the Yocto Project.

Software development kits (SDKs)

An SDK is a set of tools we can use outside Yocto/OE. These tools generally include a compiler, linker, debugger, libraries, and external headers. This set of compilation tools is called a toolchain. With the Raspberry Pi (or other embedded platforms), the toolchain is often composed of crosstools, ...
