Sailfish Platform SDK

Contents

  1. Overview

Attention: Platform development is now more convenient with the regular Sailfish SDK through its command line frontend ‘sfdk’, available on all Linux, macOS and Windows. The Linux-only chroot based Sailfish Platform SDK remains available for special applications. It also remains the default (documented) option for Hardware Adaptation Development, although the regular Sailfish SDK can be used for that purpose as well.

Overview

The Sailfish Platform SDK is a chroot based environment that encapsulates the Sailfish SDK Toolchain in a portable manner.

Installation is covered in the Sailfish Platform SDK Installation and the Sailfish Platform SDK Target Installation guides.

After completing the two installation steps, proceed to learn how to use the SDK to build software packages.
