A toolchain provides the ability to build OpenWSN firmware, load it onto hardware, and run a debugger.
A build environment provides a unifying context in which to run toolchain tools. OpenWSN provides two build environments, SCons and Eclipse, for most platforms.
SCons – Command line based tool for scripting builds and loading firmware.
OpenWSN SCons page
Also see the toolchain-specific links below for debugger support.
Eclipse – GUI IDE for builds, loading firmware, and debugging.
See the toolchain-specific links below for Eclipse-based setup and instructions.
These toolchains may be used with either TelosB or GINA hardware.
