Make: Nothing to be done for 'all'

Hi, super stoked to be getting into this!

I was going through the steps to set up my environment and I’m stuck on running make on the Blink example with a message ‘make: Nothing to be done for ‘all’’.

Trying to figure this out the only things I’m finding that seem like they may be relevant would be the Path not being correct? I added C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\bin as per mentioned in this thread which seemed right, but this is my first encounter with Paths so I may be missing the boat here.

Any tips or right direction prodding greatly appreciated!

Based on the output from make it seems like the Blink program is already compiled on your machine.

Try running
make clean

And then run make again

It should now compile your example.

It seems like the documentation in the wiki is a little misleading since you first run the rebuild_all script which actually compiles the examples.
So when you try to compile an individual program there is nothing to do.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
We’ll get the documentation updated ASAP.

The Getting Started Guide on the Wiki has been updated to instruct use of ./ci/ for ‘Building the libraries’ instead of the rebuild all script.

This will also speed the process up a bit since it won’t be building every single example.
