Looking for chromebook developers for BLDC tool

I am a high school student and I have a chromebook as I don’t really need a windows or Mac. I was wondering if anyone knows or can make a bldc tool chromebook app or extension. I think it would also be very useful to students who have chrome books as well who want to be able use the bldc tool on also. Chears

It’s cool to have this on browser (browser bldc tool), however I think doing this type of development is quite some work since there is less browser developer instead of standard unix / windows app developer. Nevertheless you don’t have to use it every single day to switch it on (bldc tool), so you could always ask a friend to help you out by borrowing their windows PC for 10 min. I think it’s also possible to change VESC configuration using @Ackmaniac firmware just by your phone.

Anyway might be good to move this post to a more appropriate categories :smiley:

There are Ubuntu builds which run on the same kernel, it may not actually be that hard to do.

There’s many ways to get Ubuntu on a Chromebook apparently. https://www.google.com/search?q=run+ubuntu+software+on+chromebook&oq=run+Ubuntu+software+on+chrome&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j33l3.16374j0j9&client=ms-android-verizon&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8

That too. I was referring to getting the Ubuntu version to build for ChromeOS though. They both have the same kernel if I recall correctly

I know I could download it through Linux if I get into developer mode and download crouton but I would love to have an extension or app or browser of the bldc tool

I would have to install crouton to get Ubuntu

…still not talking about “getting Ubuntu”…

I know I don’t need the tool to turn on but it’s annoying to borrow someone else’s pc every time I need to adjust something

Chrome OS is a highly modified version of Ubuntu/Linux and it’s inky terminal is called crosh and you can’t even download stuff from it without going into developer mode

They are good for basic tasks but not good for coding and running programs as it only used the play store and chrome store

Just get a basic laptop with windows 7. Chromebook are basically made for one person and that is old people who still have an aol.com email account and everyone else in there family is trying to switch them over to gmail

Chrome OS uses web based extensioms (basically chrome apps) they do not have access to hardware layer so no apart some kind TCP bridge to serial or uart to bluetooth to phone app to tcp

darn thats what i was afraid of

Oh wait sorry I am wrong there is specific extension for hardware layer :smiley:


oh wow i gotta look through that, thanks

is there a way to impirt the bldc tool into https format?
