|Re: [kanto-dev] Yocto integration of Kanto's components|
Thank you for the input and please accept our apologies for the late response!
The Yocto integration of Kanto is currently an ongoing work on our side but still – I can give you a heads-up regarding what we are aiming for there. The goal is to provide a single meta layer (e.g. meta-kanto) that will include a recipe per building block (e.g. recipes-connectivity/suite-connector_git.bb, recipes-containers/container-management_git.bb, etc. ) alongside an .inc file per recipe for flexibility.
As it is still an ongoing work, unfortunately, there is still no official user documentation in the Kanto website. Nevertheless, as the Bosch IoT Edge Agent is a basis we are open sourcing as part of Kanto, you can take a look at its user documentation and the approach that we took there a while ago. The one for Kanto will be similar with regards to structure of the layer with the difference that all recipes will be built from the source that is now available in the respective public GitHub repos in Kanto.
Please, let us know if we can provide further information regarding the layer and/or a specific recipe upfront so that we can enable you in your PoC experience until we get the layer publicly available!
Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
Hello Kanto team,
We had a call a couple of weeks ago where Kanto and Oniro Projects met and tried to have an initial assessment for possible collaboration. I have started to look a bit deeper into Kanto’s components to try to get hands-on/PoC experience. We are currently in the phase where we select the container runtime and while doing so we want to play with the associated support in Kanto.
We have mentioned in the call that our build system of choice is Yocto and we were happy to understand that Yocto/OE is one of the supported “distros”. I have checked the public documentation available at https://www.eclipse.org/kanto/docs/ but I couldn’t find any references for a Kanto Yocto layer – or similar integration. Could you guide me to where that is available? The current instructions assume a Debian-like host distro - https://www.eclipse.org/kanto/docs/getting-started/install/.
