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
