Development environment setup and remote deployment for Beagle Bone Black

Black _is_ the new Black

The Beagle Bone Black is a great embedded platform running Linux.  Sure you can download a pre-made distro and apt-get install whatever you want.  Or you can start writing your own apps (and not just python scripts either).  If you’ve never done any cross-compiling before it may be a daunting task to get up and running.

Michael has put together a really extensive guide to getting set up.  Normally you just install the right tool-chain and you are good to go, but he’s gone a step further with setting up a graphical dev environment (Eclipse) and showing you how to do remote deployment of your binaries.  This saves you the trouble of doing it manually (or even worse, rebuilding your sd-card image each time to put it on there).

Great article, check it out.
