Description: Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on
flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists,
designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive
objects or environments.
This package contains a Makefile that can be used to compile and upload
code to the micro-controller without using the Arduino IDE.
Does it make sense to have this one file in a separate package, vs adding it to aduino-core? (I ask primarily because the upstream page mentions that debian has added it to arduino-core).
Another improvement would be to decide in cooperation with upstream on a environment variable that points to the make file and is set in /etc/profile.d.
Then Makefiles can easily include this makefile using it, e.g. with:
I think it makes sense to include this in arduino-core
It appeared for a while that Arduino would include an official makefile in the future, which would make this redundant, but it now looks like that's not going to happen.
There seem to be a number of different makefiles around, not necessarily kept compatible with the latest version of Arduino. I'm no-longer sure that it makes sense to include one with Fedora at all.
