Setup tool for bitbake based projects
This tool provides an easy mechanism to setup bitbake based projects.
The OpenEmbedded tooling support starts at step 2 with bitbake. The downloading of sources and then configuration has to be done by hand. Usually, this is explained in a README. Instead kas is using a project configuration file and does the download and configuration phase.
Key features provided by the build tool:
clone and checkout bitbake layers
create default bitbake settings (machine, arch, …)
launch minimal build environment, reducing risk of host contamination
initiate bitbake build process
See the kas documentation for further details.
At this stage, kas does not validate the integrity of fetched repositories. Make sure to only pull from trusted sources to ensure that the selected revisions are the expected ones, specifically when using mirrors. Later versions of kas may introduce integrity validation mechanisms such as cryptographic checksums to strengthen supply chain security.
