OpenTX firmware build made easy

Post by pafleraf » Wed May 30, 2018 11:55 am

In case someone is interested, the latest OpenTX has changed some build dependencies (basically replaced PyQt through python Pillow). While doing that, I figured out it could be way easier for people to build opentx from source if we had a proper docker image. This way, you don't need to care about build dependencies, find the right compiler versions, etc.

This way, you get basically the same firmware file as if you would have downloaded it with Companion, just that Companion cannot make firmwares which include your own modifications, or made from a special branch.

So, here are the instructions:

- Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/pafleraf/opentx-fw-build/
