The nanoFramework toolbox just got a new addition: nanoFramework Firmware Flasher. This new tool is a CLI provided as a .NET Core Global Tool. And why is this so special you may ask! A .NET Core Global Tool is a special NuGet package that contains a console application. It gets installed on the developer’s machine … Continue reading nanoFirmawareFlasher is here!
nanoFramework C# class libraries are distributed as NuGet packages to be consumed by projects. This has been like this since day one. NuGet packages are practical, easy to distribute, easy to consume, easy to update. But they had a …minor… problem. Actually, make that two… 😉 One was that the dependency between the managed assembly … Continue reading NuGet, assembly and native versions
Code quality is something that is high in our priority list at nanoFramework. Though, being on the list is not of much use, it must be measurable and comparable against an accepted standard. For this reason, since last week we’ve been busy adding the awesome SonarCloud tool to all our class libraries repositories on GitHub. … Continue reading SonarCloud is on nanoFramework repos!

Let me explain with a bit more detail. To run a C# application a nanoDevice must have on its storage (which is a flash … Continue reading Deployment image generator
A quick blog post about a survey we are conducting about nanoFramework ready hardware. We get it that there is already a bunch of hardware out there that one can choose to start with or develop an embedded systems project on top of. But we've been giving this some thought internally and we are inclined … Continue reading nanoFramework ready hardware?
The MCU family is growing larger by the day and it is time to celebrate a new vendor! Today we are adding TI CC3220SF LaunchPad™ to the growing list of nanoFramework reference targets. Yes, we’ve seen new boards added before, so why all the fuss about this one? Looking closely and it is more to … Continue reading Welcome TI and CC3220!
nanoFramework class libraries are composed of a managed part (written in C#) and the respective counterpart (written in C/C++) that is part of the firmware image that runs on the target. As part of the usual development cycle there are improvements, bug fixes and changes. Some of those touch only the managed part, others only … Continue reading To deploy, or not to deploy, that’s the question…
