cli_programmer on mac

I'm working with DA14681, and most of my development is on Mac OSX. However, the tools are only available for Windows and Linux. I'm wondering if there is a version of cli_programmer for Mac OSX. Currently this is the only thing I cannot use on Mac, and I have to startup a virtual machine just so I can flash the board using this tool.

Hi Ainwood87,

Hi Ainwood87,

Let me check and see if we have a copy of the cli_programmer that will run on Mac OSX.

I'll get back to you ASAP.

Best regards

Hi Ainwood87,

Hi Ainwood87,

I've checked and I'm afraid we don't have a version of the cli_programmer for Mac OS X available for release. 

Best regards

Hi Dialog,

Hi Dialog,

I discovered that the source code for cli_programmer is available in the SDK that you provide. I had to make some modifications, (including hardcoding uartboot.bin for DA14681), but I was able to build a version that works for me on OSX (I haven't tested all usecases, but it works for flashing .elf files). If this is of interest to you, I could provide you with the generated binary for cli_programmer, or I could provide you with the details of my modifications so that they could be included in the future releases of the SDK.

I would be interested in your

I would be interested in your build, or details of the modifications. We're using DA14585, and it would be really convenient to be able to test from OSX.

Hello,

Hello,

we also need a way to flash the firmware from a Mac. Please provide some tools for the platform!

Thank you

Hi balo,

As already mentioned in a previous comment, we don't have a version of the cli_programmer for Mac OS X available for release.
