which are the first steps for C++ programmers?
In the installation guide there are only 2 sections ( C/C++ is still missing yet! ) :
Choose one of the languages below:
so for the first mounting:
just plug the BrickPi on to the Pi without any preparations?
extra voltage supplies required?
for a start with Raspbian (Jessie) already running:
(Raspbian installed by NOOBS: user pi, no password)
setup preferences in Linux config files (boot/config.txt? menu->Raspi configuration?) ?
(probably enable SPI, anything else?)
download and install Linux drivers?
download and install C API libraries :
sudo git clone...? sudo apt install... (.so, .a, .cpp, .c, .hpp., .h, folder
where to copy .h, .hpp, .c, and .cpp files ( /usr/local/include? /usr/local/lib? manually create directories? ) to be accessable from anywhere (/home/pi/...? by
#include <BrickPi.h> or anything?)
compile and build flags
(-l..., -L..., -I...) ?
gcc 4.9 ok? -std=c11 needed?
for the BrickPi HAT:
how to check the current firmware?
how to update firmware (in case)?
before you "hello brickpi world"?
