New Docker Development Environment

Setting up the GCC cross-compilation toolchain to make your own Ndless C/C++ programs on Linux is easy thanks to the build_toolchain.sh script of the Ndless SDK, but a bit long as everything needs to be built from scratch.

We’re now introducing the Ndless SDK Docker image. Docker is a platform to build and share applications through lightweight containers. The Ndless SDK Docker image packs the Ndless SDK and all its dependencies.

First make sure to update your Linux box to the latest version of Docker. Then run the two commands:

$ sudo docker pull ndless/ndless-sdk
$ git clone https://github.com/ndless-nspire/Ndless.git

Add ndless-sdk/bin-docker/ to your PATH and here you go! All nspire-* commands will automatically be propagated to the Docker container.
