Before you begin
You will need a x64 bit non Windows machine to build FarmBot OS from source. We suggest the latest OSX or Ubuntu LTS.
Farmbot OS now bundles and builds the Arduino Firmware. This is bundled as a
git submodule. To initialize the repository you can choose to do one of:
git clone https://github.com/FarmBot/farmbot_os.git --recursive or
git clone https://github.com/FarmBot/farmbot_os.git git submodule update --init --recursive
If you have the above set up you will need the following software dependencies. Following this guide will get you mostly setup.
|GNU Make + GCC||Required|
