Using Toaster

Toaster can run in various modes and setups.

  • Local mode - in this mode Toaster is setup for use as a local development tool. It can be used to configure builds or just as a receiver for builds done on the command line with bitbake. You can launch it like this:
$ source oe-init-build-env
$ source toaster start

You then navigate to the link in your browser (e.g. http://localhost:8000) and configure a project. Or start building in the normal way with bitbake via the command line. Toaster will automatically pick up the builds and you will be able to see them on the build dashboard in your browser.

  • Production mode - All the same functionality as the local mode but with the web server setup as a shared service for multiple developers to use, this sets up Toaster as a wsgi application and requires additional configuration.
