This directory contains various useful scripts and tools for working
with Buildroot. You need not add this directory in your PATH to use
any of those tools, but you may do so if you want.
a script that can be run instead of make, that prepends the date in
front of each line, redirects all of the build output to a file
("'br.log' in the current directory), and just outputs the Buildroot
messages (those lines starting with >>>) on stdout.
Do not run this script for interactive configuration (e.g. menuconfig)
or on an unconfigured directory. The output is redirected so you will see
a script that checks the coding style of a package's Config.in and
.mk files, and also tests them for various types of typoes.
a script that generates a random configuration, used by the autobuilders
(http://autobuild.buildroot.org). It selects a random toolchain from
support/config-fragments/autobuild and randomly selects packages to build.
a script to return the list of people interested in a specific part
of Buildroot, so they can be Cc:ed on a mail. Accepts a patch as
input, a package name or and architecture name.
a script to create a Buildroot package by scanning a CPAN module
a script to create a Buildroot package by scanning a PyPI package
a script to compare the rootfs size between two different Buildroot
configurations. This can be used to identify the size impact of
a specific option, of a set of specific options, or of an update
to a newer Buildroot version...
a script that tests a specific package against a set of various
toolchains, with the goal to detect toolchain-related dependencies
