tilda_tools is a toolchain for working with the micropython environment on the badge.
- Python 3
- Clone the Mk4-Apps repo from https://github.com/emfcamp/Mk4-Apps/ (see Cloning a repository for help). Alternatively you can download a ZIP file from the repository page.
- Open a terminal in the Mk4-Apps/ directory. tilda_tools is in the root of this directory.
- Windows Users - you will need to install Pyserial to get some commands working - Instructions here
Windows users, cd into the .development folder then run:
> python tilda_tools.py <options>
NOTE: Unfortunately, while this works, it messes up file paths in various options. A better alternative is to create/update a tilda_tools.bat windows batch file, containing the following:
@echo off python %CD%/.development\tilda_tools.py %*
This batch file massively simplifies previous versions, but some things may still not work

Sync (as above), but execute my_app after reboot $ tilda_tools sync --boot my_app [<other sync parameter>] Sync (as above), but execute a single file afterwards without copying it to the badge $ tilda_tools sync --run some_other_file.py Sync a given app and execute it $ tilda_tools app home_default Executes a single file on the badge without copying anything (Using pyboard.py) $ tilda_tools run my_app/main.py Runs local validation (doesn't require a badge, but doesn't run unit tests) $ tilda_tools validate Runs local validation and badge-side tests $ tilda_tools test Update firmware on badge (warning, this will delete all settings etc. stored on the badge!) $ tilda_tools firmware-update Setup wifi.json to be copied to the badge on every sync $ tilda_tools wifi
