Bitbake Cheat Sheet –

Note This example was inspired by and drew heavily from these sources: Specifies a function BitBake calls that determines whether BitBake requires a setscene dependency to be met.

The variable is only valid in configuration files. This configuration directive causes the named class to be inherited at the point of the gitbake during parsing. PE The epoch of the recipe.

A list of package name aliases that a package also provides. This code is used to prune the “run” scripts down to the minimum set, thereby alleviating this problem and making the “run” scripts much more readable as a manuzl.

Split metadata into layers and allow biybake to override each other. If you do not set up these conditions, you are limited to using one function or the other. Once these conditions are set up, you can share the functionality using a require directive from within each recipe:.

When specifying the variable in your configuration file, use the following form:. Recall that if BitBake cannot find a bblayers. Thus, later evaluations of B in the previous example could result in different values depending on the value of A. Promoting a Function to a Task 3.


Controls whether the resulting checkout is at the maanual level, which is the default, or is at deeper paths. Accessing Datastore Variables Using Python 3.

Tell BitBake to export what you have loaded into the datastore to the task environment of every running task. After extraction of the tarball using the tar utility, you have a directory entitled bitbake The base class is implicitly inherited by every recipe. IoT configuration main recipe file for By default, BitBake cleans the environment to include only those things exported or listed in its whitelist to ensure that the build environment is reproducible and consistent.

Setting this variable to a value causes BitBake to report an error if it encounters a non-local URL that does not have at least one checksum specified. Variants – Class Extension Mechanism. The Task List 2. Note It is assumed that local storage is safe from data corruption. As well as being able to add tasks, tasks can also be deleted. Root of the yumapro layer bitbake files. Use the following commands to create the conf directory in the project directory:. Used to specify the UI module to use when running BitBake.

When working with varflags, the same syntax, with the exception of overrides, applies. This class contains definitions for standard basic tasks such as fetching, unpacking, configuring empty by defaultcompiling runs any Makefile presentinstalling empty by default and packaging empty by default. You specify the file in question, and BitBake parses it and executes the specified task.

Where possible, subsequent BitBake commands reuse this cache of recipe information. No disk space monitoring for the directory itself occurs in this case. As an example, suppose you needed to inherit a class file called abc. The code to execute the first part of this process, a fetch, looks something like the following:.


To build a different variant of the recipe with a minimal amount of code, it usually is as btbake as adding the variable to your recipe. The epoch of the recipe. For non-local archive downloads, the fetcher code bitabke verify sha and md5 checksums to ensure the archives have been downloaded correctly. But where do they go? Inline Python Variable Expansion. Lists recipe names PN values BitBake does not attempt to build.

Here is an example that conditionally sets a variable based on the value of another variable:. Root directory for all yumapro server manuwl.

Causes the CVS metadata to be maintained in the tarball the fetcher creates when set to “keep”. See the ” Variable Flag Syntax ” section for details.

To help understand how BitBake does this, the section assumes an OpenEmbedded metadata-based example. Hello World Example A. The central download directory used by the build process to store downloads.

Bitbake Cheat Sheet

BitBake continues to fork threads as long as there are tasks ready to run, those tasks have all their dependencies met, and the thread threshold has not been exceeded. This condition often occurs when layers get out of sync e.

The base configuration metadata is global and therefore affects all recipes and tasks that are executed. Consequently, A becomes “ZX”.
