Installing TinyOS 2.1.3

NOTE: this is a preview of a future page and doesn't actually work yet!!

Installing TinyOS is broken into two parts: installing the toolchains for embedded platforms and retrieving the TinyOS source code.

Installing Required Toolchains

Linux (Ubuntu, Debian)

sudo apt-get install tinyos

Mac OS X

sudo port install tinyos


sudo brew install tinyos

Getting TinyOS Source

The TinyOS operating system is essentially a collection of microcontroller and other IC drivers, core libraries, and higher-level application stacks that must be compiled with application specific code to load onto hardware platforms. Therefore, you must have a copy of the TinyOS source to compile these applications agains.


tar xf tinyos-2.1.3.tar.gz

Next Steps

Compile your first application to test the install.
