Recipe to install own applications


#1

Hi team,

I would like to develop a recipe to compile and install my .ar7 application within the Yocto distribution as you do with the Legato Services (positioningService, modemService…).

Could you help me to to know how to start with it? -> How to compile (mkcomp, mkapp…) and how to install .ar7 (instapp…) within a yocto recipe.

Thank you in advance,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

This feature is coming in 15.04. We’ll include recipes showing how to add your own app.

Regards,

Hi,

Thank you for your response. I will check this feature in the next release. But, which will be the space limitation for customer apps? (Would it be possible to install own apps in different partitions? If available space is not enough).

Hi Daniel,

Instead of installing in a different partition you can resize the various flash partitions using AT!APPPARTCHG. You can check out the following post to see how that works:

Thank you Andrew for your replies.

I will try this command in order to resize flash partitions.
