Practical Zephyr - West workspaces (Part 6)

In the previous articles, we used freestanding applications and relied on a global Zephyr installation. In this article, we’ll see how we can use West to resolve global dependencies by using workspace applications. We first explore West without even including Zephyr and then recreate the modified Blinky application from the previous article in a West workspace.

Major Improvements For Linux Users In Tracealyzer v4.9

Installation on Linux has been greatly simplified in the upcoming Tracealyzer v4.9. The installation package now includes everything needed to run the software. Linux users no longer need to install dependencies like Mono or libgconf. Instead, a native Linux binary is provided (for x86-64) with the Mono runtime integrated. Most other dependencies have been replaced or removed. You are up and running in a few minutes. We have also spent a lot of time improving the overall user experience on Linux.

Practical Zephyr - Devicetree practice (Part 5)

In the previous articles, we covered Devicetree in great detail: We’ve seen how we can create our own nodes, we’ve seen the supported property types, we know what bindings are, and we’ve seen how to access the Devicetree using Zephyr’s devicetree.h API. In this fifth article of the Practical Zephyr series, we’ll look at how Devicetree is used in practice by dissecting the Blinky application.
