Working with Processing on BUG
After Kevin Schultz’s recent work on jvm benchmarking for BUG, I thought it was time to put cacao + classpath to work. I have been exploring the possibility of using Processing with BUG for some time, but the limited API available in phoneME Advanced Personal put that effort just beyond reach. Building cacao and classpath for my BUG is cake with the new platform, and deploying Processing isn’t very difficult either. It’s not stable yet, but it’s a pretty cool proof of concept.
Updated 9/19: Note that cacao + classpath is not part of the R1.3 build. See our wiki page on tweaking your build to customize your own BUG platform, including some pointers on getting openembedded addons onto your BUG. Notes on how to build Processing for your BUG forthcoming.
