Description

Install Development Platforms and dependent packages.

The version supports Semantic Versioning ( <major>.<minor>.<patch>) and can take any of the following forms:

  • ^1.2.3 - any compatible version (new functionality in a backwards compatible manner and patches are allowed, 1.x.x). RECOMMENDED
  • ~1.2.3 - any version with the same major and minor versions, and an equal or greater patch version
  • >1.2.3 - any version greater than 1.2.3. >=, <, and <= are also possible
  • >0.1.0,!=0.2.0,<0.3.0 - any version greater than 0.1.0, not equal to 0.2.0 and less than 0.3.0
  • 1.2.3 - an exact version number. Use only this exact version.

Also, PlatformIO supports installing from local directory or archive. Need to use file:// prefix before local path. Also, directory or archive should contain platform.json manifest.

  • file:///local/path/to/the/platform/dir
  • file:///local/path/to/the/platform.zip
  • file:///local/path/to/the/platform.tar.gz

Version control

PlatformIO supports installing from Git, Mercurial and Subversion, and detects the type of VCS using url prefixes: “git+”, “hg+”, or “svn+”.

Note

PlatformIO requires a working VCS command on your path: git, hg or svn.

Git

The supported schemes are: git, git+https and git+ssh. Here are the supported forms:

  • https://github.com/platformio/platform-NAME.git
  • git+git://git.server.org/my-platform
  • git+https://git.server.org/my-platform
  • git+ssh://git.server.org/my-platform
  • git+ssh://user@git.server.org/my-platform
  • [user@]host.xz:path/to/repo.git

Passing branch names, a commit hash or a tag name is possible like so:

Mercurial

The supported schemes are: hg+http, hg+https and hg+ssh. Here are the supported forms:

  • hg+hg://hg.server.org/my-platform
  • hg+https://hg.server.org/my-platform
  • hg+ssh://hg.server.org/my-platform

Passing branch names, a commit hash or a tag name is possible like so:

  • hg+hg://hg.server.org/my-platform#master
  • hg+https://hg.server.org/my-platform#v1.0
  • hg+ssh://hg.server.org/my-platform#4cfe2fa00668

Subversion

The supported schemes are: svn, svn+svn, svn+http, svn+https and svn+ssh. Here are the supported forms:

  • svn+svn://svn.server.org/my-platform
  • svn+https://svn.server.org/my-platform
  • svn+ssh://svn.server.org/my-platform

You can also give specific revisions to an SVN URL, like so:

  • svn+svn://svn.server.org/my-platform#13
