Feedback form is now closed.
Newt, the build and package management tool for Apache Mynewt, is an unheralded yet integral component in the composition of an expansive OS for embedded. Newt includes:

  • Composablity: open project collaboration; maintaining private code trees; enforced source code layout.
  • Build: config; multiple targets; source code layout including 3rd party SDKs. 
  • Package Management: versioning and stability. 
  • Embedded artifacts: debugger maintenance; generation of flash images, upgradable images. 
  • Introspection: size; packages; versions.
  • Enforced hierarchy: HW MCU; HW BSP; Application. 
  • System Definition: Split images for upgrade; RAM locs; Flash / persistent storage.
The talk will also compare/contrast with mechanisms such as kconfig and discuss approaches to leveraging both environments.
