A yocto EC2 Python project

Project description


A project with some tools that may help embedded linux developers build linux image with Yocto on EC2.

The idea we may select a very cool EC2 with 16 cores and 32 GB RAM, this cost us ~$0.4 an hour for a build. We only run the EC2 once we start building the linux image and stop this once we are done. So, the EC2 does not cost us more than $30-$40 a month. it’s cheaper than you invest super desktop to build the code, plus utility bill and cooler as well.



## Setup AWS

  1. Create EC2 instance:

    • Type: c5.4xlarge and ESB 120GB
    • OS: Ubuntu Server 18.04

    Note: Use ubuntu user for everything.

  2. Add your ssh public key to the EC2

    • Copy your public key
      `bash ssh-keygen cat ~/.ssh/ | pbcopy `
    • Paste the key to EC2
      `bash vim .ssh/authorized_keys `

## Clone source code and initialize build environment

Clone your code to your EC2

## Installation

`bash pip install yoctoEC2 `

#### For current version, I suggest you to initialize build environment and accept EULA by manual.

## Yocto build

You may want to modify build script with your project parameters.

Start EC2, build, copy image and Stop EC2

yocto-ec2 build –instance-id=<instance-id> –project-root=<project-path> –DISTRO=<distro> –MACHINE=<machine> –IMAGE=<image>

`bash yocto-ec2 build --instance-id=i-12345678  --project-root=/home/ubuntu/Workspace/iMX6ULEVK/ --script-path=./ --sdcard-image=/home/ubuntu/Workspace/iMX6ULEVK/build/tmp/deploy/images/imx6ulevk/core-image-base-imx6ulevk.sdcard.bz2 `
