AVR – dockerized toolchain

Lightweight docker image built on top of alpine:3.10 with installed AVR toolchain and few additional tools:

  • AVR8 toolchain (2019, AVR_8_bit_GNU_Toolchain_3.6.2_1759)
  • avrdude (v6.3)
  • make (v4.2)
  • cmake (v3.14)

DockerHub: https://hub.docker.com/r/lpodkalicki/avr-toolchain


Bellow you can find recommended simple one-line installer that pulls the newest docker-image and installs avr-toolchain script into “/usr/bin/” directory.
