Dear rewewing IoTlers,
I just opened a pull request in RIOT that should ease the work with RIOT applications on the IoT-LAB testbed a little bit: https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/pull/2640
Including the proposed Makefile like
in an application's Makefile allows to create IoT-LAB experiments, flash, reset and access the nodes right from the command line with Make in one go, e.g. executing
export BOARD=iot-lab_M3 make iotlab-auth make iotlab-exp IOTLAB_NODES=10 IOTLAB_DURATION=60 IOTLAB_SITE=grenoble make iotlab-flash make iotlab-term
will reserve an experiment for 10 nodes and 60 minutes in Grenoble, flash the current application to all nodes and starts serial_aggregator for these nodes.
Let me know what you think about this idea and what could be improved.
