  • zephyr

    Primary Git Repository for the Zephyr Project. Zephyr is a new generation, scalable, optimized, secure RTOS for multiple hardware architectures.

    In this thread u/ikravets explained that there hasn't been much demand for Zephyr, which is why they aren't doing anything with it, and in this pull request Zephyr decided to no longer recommend PlatformIO in their documentation.

  • platformio-docs

    PlatformIO Documentation

    But ultimately platform.io it is an (ukrainian) open source project maintained by few and this most likely in free time. If you experience a lack of information, I would strongly suggest to contribute your experience to the project docs here and add the missing parts/hints to the documentation via pull request.

  • threadx

    Discontinued Azure RTOS ThreadX is an advanced real-time operating system (RTOS) designed specifically for deeply embedded applications. (by azure-rtos)

    Portability, mainly. Zephyr runs on a wide variety of architectures and 450+ variations of popular boards are already supported upstream (adding more often being pretty easy). In your particular example, your own preferences with regards to building on top of open-source software may play a role too. For example, Azure RTOS is not open source, and its license will, among other things, prevent you to use it in production on other hardware than what's listed herehere. So easily moving from one hardware vendor / SoC to the other might be a problem, should this be a requirement (and it kind of becomes one for a lot of people in these times if silicon shortage)

  • dotfiles

    My dotfiles (by artizirk)

    For quick edits do use vim or nvim with no plugins and mostly stock config
