Sailfish Platform SDK


  1. Overview

The Sailfish Platform SDK is the default (documented) option for Hardware Adaptation Development. Further, it can be used for platform development.

Note: 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 Sailfish Platform SDK is a chroot based environment that encapsulates the Sailfish SDK Toolchain in a portable manner. It runs on Linux machines with Intel x86 CPUs. Apple silicon is not supported.

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.
