Building apps that will be run on Raspberry Pi will require you in most scenarios to:
- Develop a regular Linux app
- Optimised to use hardware and computing power of Raspberry Pi
- Run it in Raspbian OS or any other Linux distribution of your choice
- Can’t or don’t want to base your solution on Linux
- Need to have nearly no limits and full fexibility
- Want to learn something really cool
Then you need to get your hands dirty, forget about Linux and start thinking about Ultibo.
What the heck is this? Well… to cite its creators (emphasis and shortening mine):
Ultibo is a complete embedded development environment written specifically for creating applications with small single board computers. It uses many concepts from general operating system design and even borrows information from Linux, but Ultibo is not based on anything else.
Yes, it is what it sounds! No Linux, no console (unless you develop one!), no distro installation. Free Pascal (other languages also partially supported), Lazarus IDE (on any platform), and Raspberry Pi as a target (other platforms also partially covered).
And they’ve told us that Delphi and Pascal programming is long gone and forgotten… Ha! :)Read More “Developing for Raspberry Pi with Ultibo”
