Intel® XDK

Getting Started with the Intel® IoT Devkit and Intel® XDK IoT Edition

Describes how to use the Intel Development Kit for IoT (IoTDK) to create and test applications for Intel IoT platforms, such as the Intel® Galileo and Edison maker boards. The IoTDK software comprises: the Intel® XDK IoT Edition, the Yocto Linux* system, and a set of libraries. This topic describes steps needed to set up and connect a board, and use the Intel® XDK IoT Edition to run a sample app.

Debug Tab

After you configure your mobile device, you can connect a supported mobile device to your development system with a USB cable. The Debug tab provides remote on-device debugging of HTML5 code using the Google Chrome* Developer Tools (CDT) to provide full JavaScript* debugging with breakpoints and profiling.

Understanding Intel XDK Cordova* Build Files

The Intel XDK provides a Cordova build system based on the open source Apache* Cordova CLI build system. The Intel XDK uses the information you provide in the Projects tab to generate the main intelxdk.config.xml and related build configuration files. These configuration files get submitted with your HTML5 app sources to the Cordova build system for the chosen platform. The Intel XDK build server contains a Cordova CLI environment, so you do not need to install the open source Cordova CLI system on your workstation.

Test Tab

Once your HTML5 app looks appropriate on the emulator, test your app on an actual device running Intel App Preview. You can also use the Test tab to access to the on-device Weinre* remote debugger so you can see JavaScript* messages generated by the app running on device.
