We’ve been working on simplifying the process of installing the necessary tools, as it has proven to be both time-consuming and prone to various issues depending on the operating system.
I would like to introduce the DaisyToolchain. The timing of this also worked out well with a few updates to the tools themselves (openocd 0.11, etc.) that have had a wonderful effect on simplifying the MacOS installation as well.
Instructions have been updated on the Wiki for Windows and Mac, and the whole process should take a fraction of the time it used to.
For Windows, we’ve bundled up versions of all of the tools. So all you have to do is download the release zip file, extract it to a location of your choosing, and double click the
install.bat file (which simply adds the
windows\bin folder to your user PATH variable).
For Mac, the homebrew version of the core tools are now all up to date. So our
install.command file will install homebrew if it isn’t installed already, use it to install the necessary tools, and run the annoying security command that has been necessary since Mojave. Use the same release zip file as was mentioned above.
We have not fully simplified the Linux installation yet, but we may do that in the form of a VM that can be used on any OS.
Feel free to ask questions, or suggest improvements. We’re hoping this will begin to make things a lot easier. We look forward to your feedback, and plan to improve upon this process as regularly as is necessary to make working with Daisy as easy as it should be.
