We'll go over the three main sources of firmwares:

Mentioned but largely ignored (as it currently has nothing) is the hexbright public code library.

  1. Go to github.
  2. There are 3 main types of firmwares.
    • There are 3 main types of firmwares.

      • First, firmwares derived from the original samples repository (blue), see step 3.

      • Second, firmwares derived from the hexbright library (orange), see step 4.

      • Third, unrelated firmwares (purple), see step 5.

    • The samples repository contains the initial sample firmware.

      • At a future point, notable firmwares may be included in the repository (see the Pull Requests).

      • Most importantly, we can see works that have been derived from this repository (by clicking the number to the right of Forks).

        • The left box shows users that have uploaded changes that have not been pulled into the main repository.

        • The right circle is hovered over, showing details of that particular commit. If clicked, you can see details of that work.

        • This code may or may not be ready for use.

    • The hexbright library contains a library designed to simplify programming.

      • The programs directory contains programs that could be used. For the time being, most are simple but functional.

      • The network graph shows modifications that have not yet been merged into the repository.

        • You can view modifications in progress by hovering over points, or clicking for more details.

        • It's worth noting that the library is under active development, as you can see from the code check-ins on the top line.

    • Unrelated firmwares are firmwares that have been published, but not linked to either of the previous projects.

    • Purple repositories are unrelated projects. They have a different name, and unique sizes - though most on this page are empty.

      • Alpharesearch has a repository with files, and an actual readme. We can't be sure if it's working without testing it, but these are a good sign.

    • In black is something misleading. It says it is the 'HexBright Public Code Library', but for now it just contains the source for this webpage.
