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.
