Google Repo



To simplify fetching sources and setting up the Yocto build environment we have decided to use the Google repo tool, which allows fetching sources from multiple location in a single command based on manifest files (xml).

Google repo is widely used within the Yocto community and we have simply adopted the “best practice” for Mender integrations.

The following is a one time installation of Google repo.

Create directory for repo

mkdir ${HOME}/bin

Fetch the repo script

curl > ${HOME}/bin/repo

Set the executable bit

chmod a+x ${HOME}/bin/repo

You should also add the following to your .bashrc or equivalent, for convenience.
