RUNNING RMKIT APPS

rmkit-dev/rmkit
https://github.com/rmkit-dev/rmkit

$ wget https://build.rmkit.dev/master/latest/kobo/KoboRoot.tgz

Install to .kobo/

After unmounting power cycling my Kobo reader, I swiped up the verry right OR left edge of my Clara HD, straddling the display and the bezel. I swiped all the way bottom to top. Maybe tap and swipe if you have troubles.

The menu comes up with:
Nickel
animation_demo
dumbskull
input_demo
mines
rpncalc
wordlet

E.g. click to select the mines app.

Swipe up to return to the menu.

Click the menu usage stat to the right of the mines entry to kill the app.

Click the Nickel entry to return to Nickel.

Attempt to install additional packages manually:

Index of /master/latest/kobo/
https://build.rmkit.dev/master/latest/kobo/

$ wget https://build.rmkit.dev/master/lates...release.tar.gz

$ tar zxvf release.tar.gz
apps/
apps/eclear
apps/drawing_demo
apps/mines
apps/rpncalc
apps/sharenote
apps/dumbskull
apps/sha256sum.txt
apps/animation_demo
apps/proc
apps/remux
apps/wordlet
apps/ls.txt
apps/harmony
apps/remux.service
apps/simple
apps/genie
apps/dithering_demo
apps/input_demo
apps/stb.arm.o
apps/lamp
apps/iago
apps/nao.sh
apps/rmkit.h
apps/bufshot


Copied apps/drawing_demo to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ on my kobo.
Also copied harmony, lamp, nao.sh, and simple.

The only one of that bunch that appeared to do anything was harmony, which presented a nice menu of tools,etc at bottom.
But when I tried to use ...->new, it froze!

It's seems like it has potential if it gets more developed:
sas: simple app script
https://rmkit.dev/apps/sas
simple is a simple app script for remarkable that lets developers write apps without needing to compile code.
an example layout:
button 50 50 200 50 I'm a button
button 50 150 400 50 I'm a different button
label 50 100 300 50 I'm some text
image 50 200 200 200 /home/root/bomb-solid.png


...

BUILDING RMKIT APPS

rmkit/docs/BUILDING.md
https://github.com/rmkit-dev/rmkit/b...cs/BUILDING.md says:

Individual Projects
You can compile an individual project by running make <project> or make <project>_docker to build the project inside a docker container.

You can change whether you are compiling for the remarkable or a PC by adjusting the TARGET environment variable. See src/actions.make for the list of targets, which include (but is not limited to) dev and arm

Linux
install okp: pip install okp
install resim viewer: pip install rmkit-sim
compile with DEV mode: ARCH=dev make harmony
run harmony with resim ./src/build/harmony

Remarkable
install okp: sudo pip install okp
install arm toolchain
on ubuntu: sudo apt install g++-arm-linux-gnueabihf


***

But in fact, using my distro's g++-arm-linux-gnueabihf cross-platform build environment resulted in a GLIBC that was too new for my venerable Kobo Clara HD.

And trying an older Linaro release like I had done here resulted in a compiler that was too old.

Thankfully, KOReader's koxtoolchain, , like a nice bowl of porridge like you might find in a cabin in the woods , was just right.


We start by trying to build the input_demo app, the same one whose prebuilt binary we tried above.

$ cd ..


Make a backup to your PC of /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/input_demo on your kobo.

Copy input_demo and stb.arm.o(edit-obj file not needed for release,duh) from rmkit-master/src/build/ on your PC to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ on your kobo.


Swipe all the way up the edge (right or left) of your Kobo and select the input_demo app.

(Click and swipe inside the box and see the cursor move.)

(Click the Menu, Pager, Overlay, and Options items.)

(Click in the top text entry and type using the onscreen keyboard.)


Swipe up to return to the menu.

Click the menu usage stat to the right of the input_demo entry to kill the app.

Click the Nickel entry to return to Nickel.



***

Now we try to build the Simple framework.


$ source ~/koxtoolchain/refs/x-compile.sh kobo env bare

$ cd rmkit-master/

$ ARCH=kobo make simple


Copy simple from rmkit-master/src/build/ and menu.sh from rmkit-master/src/simple/apps/ on your PC to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ on your kobo.

Swipe up the right edge of your Kobo and select the menu.sh app.

(Click the option items.)

Swipe up to return to the menu.

Click the menu usage stat to the right of the menu.sh and simple entries to kill the app.

Click the Nickel entry to return to Nickel.

Now edit the menu.sh without recompiling.

$ nano -l src/simple/apps/menu.sh
Code:
  5 label 0 500 200 50 you pressed: ${option}
  6 [paragraph 0 600 500 500 ${output}]
...
 10   option=`echo "${app}" | /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/simple | grep 'selected:' | sed 's/selected: //'`
 11   output=`cat /mnt/onboard/.kobo/version`

Copy menu.sh from rmkit-master/src/simple/apps/ on your PC to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ on your kobo.

Swipe up the right edge of your Kobo and select the menu.sh app.

(Click the option items.)

Swipe up to return to the menu.

Click the menu usage stat to the right of the menu.sh and simple entries to kill the apps.

Click the Nickel entry to return to Nickel.


So we have just modified, without recompiling, an app that works on both Remarkable and Kobo devices.
* Edit - Technically, fbink can do this too, say with lua, if I ever get around to learning lua!

I may now die in peace...

Note 1 - rmkit not guaranteed to start at boot:
Since rmkit is started by /etc/udev/rules.d/99-rmkit.rules, which "runs early at boot", and "onboard *might*" (or *might not*) be mounted at that point - says so right in the comments, that means rmkit is not guaranteed to start every boot.
So we take the command from 99-rmkit.rules, and wrap it in a nice NickelMenu item, so we can start it manually:
Code:
menu_item :main    :rmkit              :cmd_spawn          :quiet :/usr/local/rmkit/startup.sh
    chain_success                      :dbg_toast          :Started rmkit
    chain_failure                      :dbg_toast          :Error starting rmkit
And another nice NickelMenu item to check if rmkit is running, before we wear out the right margin trying to swipe the rmkit launcher into life:
Code:
menu_item :main    :rmkit status       :cmd_output         :500:ps | grep remux

Note 2 - rmkit install creates /opt folder as symbolic link to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit, which interferes with other apps.
First, delete the /opt symbolic link to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit:
(*Note WITHOUT the trailing slash, i.e. /opt NOT /opt/)
# rm /opt
Second, recreate /opt as a normal folder:
# mkdir /opt
Then recreate symbolic links for rmkit subfolders:
# ln -s /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/ /opt/bin
# ln -s /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/data/ /opt/data
# ln -s /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/etc/ /opt/etc
# cp /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/enable_remux /opt/
Now, check everything is still there:
# ls /opt/
bin data enable_remux etc
# ls /opt/bin/
apps/ remux.sh

That's cool
I wonder if the "simple gui system" on rm will work on smaller screen at all, scalling is no joke

Also looking arround rm qt apps, i don't see any reason why they wouldn't run natively with the kobo platform plugin. If they are reasonably written, porting them to it should be easy.

I don't even see a list of those apps ( Qt ones ), just some old github repos? where is the list? remarkable wiki doesn't work at all

You may check the calculator app, but the build guide link seems to go nowhere, and I think your InkBox one is already better, anyway.

hi elinkser, i'm impressed you got it working - really nice work! i'd be glad to add your patches to support any other Kobo devices. i'm a bit confused, though, because i also have a Clara Kobo HD and i'm able to compile and run the rmkit apps on there - maybe it's different firmware? (or maybe its the ARCH vs TARGET issue?)

the one major app you are missing is remarkable_puzzles (https://github.com/mrichards42/remarkable_puzzles), which is a port of simon tatham's puzzles. let me know if you want me to send you a compiled version.

the docs are a bit out of date, because if you use `TARGET=kobo make <project>`, it will compile the font into the binary itself. i will update that now.

let me know if there's anything i can do to help. glad to see people are trying out rmkit

The kernel headers used by the "kobo" koxtoolchain target are *very* old (purposefully, they *need* to match the kernel used by the earliest supported device), so, yeah, it's missing a few <linux/input.h> stuff you'd think would have been there forever .

You can either ship an up-to-date header (like libevdev does), patch up the missing defines, or use the kobomk7 koxtoolchain target, which is built against a much less idiotic kernel, a slightly less idiotic glibc, and should still effectively work just fine on 100% of devices, assuming they're running FW >= 4.6. That's a trade we can't make for KOreader, because there's a surprising amount of people on old devices still running FW 3.x, but the target exists specifically to prevent technical debt like that for new stuff.

@NiLuJe:

That's great info. I will try that, but I may need a trip to the library to mooch off their broadband.

Unless there's a way to use my old "./gen-tc.sh kobo" build without having to download a lot more files???


***

@raisjn:

Thanks so much for this project!

I have only my little Clara HD, so I put the enjoyable challenge to any other interested Kobo owners to try rmkit and report back.

Maybe even Pocketbook owners???


There ARE a couple of items that come to mind...

1) Do you have any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong building drawing_demo (I get no output)?
UPDATE : "FIXED" - see below

$ source ~/koxtoolchain/refs/x-compile.sh kobo env bare

$ cd rmkit-build/

$ cd rmkit-master/

$ nano -l src/drawing_demo/main.cpy
Code:
 10     vfb = new framebuffer::FileFB("/mnt/onboard/.adds/koreader/note.raw", self.fb->display_width, self.fb->height)
 17     if input::is_touch_event(ev):
 18 //      return
 19         debug "on_mouse_move debug, ev=", ev.x              
... 
 23 //    if prevx != -1:
...
 29     debug "on_mouse_move debug, prevx=", ev.x
$ ARCH=kobo make drawing_demo

Copy drawing_demo from rmkit-master/src/build/ on my PC to /mnt/onboard/.adds/rmkit/bin/apps/ on my kobo.


When I run from SSH on PC:

# ps | grep remux
1514 root 0:00 sh /opt/bin/remux.sh
1516 root 0:00 /opt/bin/apps/remux
1648 root 0:00 grep remux

# kill -KILL 1514
# kill -KILL 1516

# sh /opt/bin/remux.sh

Then swipe up to start remux, and select the drawing_demo app:

Copy /mnt/onboard/.adds/koreader/note.raw to my PC.

$ sudo apt install ufraw

$ ufraw note.raw

* The note.raw file is actually an empty file!

Any tips on how to debug or maybe switch to another way to work around this note.raw requirement to get drawing_demo to work?


2) Aside from the information in the docs/ folder, can you explain to us pleebs what a .cpy file is?

My attempt at using a ctags-like tagging system (https://www.gnu.org/software/global/ + pygments_parser) treated .cpp files like cpp programs and .py files like python programs, but .cpy files like COBOL programs!


Maybe an entry in your online guide?

1) i don't know about drawing demo. but i did modify harmony to work with kobo (please try it out) - now touches should work in harmony (the drawing demo and harmony previously required stylus). also fixed the crash when pressing `new`, etc in harmony. i will come back to it to make the code cleaner later. harmony should be on the build server (it's built on every push to github)

2) https://github.com/raisjn/okp is a good pointer to what cpy is. cpy files are run through a pre-processor which generates .cpp and .h files. in your previous post, you modified some .h files and .cpy files. you only need to modify the .cpy files and the corresponding .h files are then generated.

2a) i put my ctags (might be universal-ctags, i don't remember) definitions into the okp repo, please try them out. i use it with vim to jump to definitions. i haven't tried global before, hopefully those definitions are useful.

If you've kept your ct-ng build directory, you'll only have to download the differences (which should be limited to glibc & linux).

That's assuming gen-tc isn't extra enthusiastic about running ct-ng clean, I don't recall; as I mostly run ct-ng manually anyway .

@NiLuJe:

Thanks for all the support.
Looking at the ~/koxtoolchain/refs/x-compile.sh, I can appreciate the behind-the-scenes torture that went into making the builds seem trivial!


***

@raisjn:

1)
So downloading the latest build of rmkit-dev/rmkit
https://github.com/rmkit-dev/rmkit,
and updating the edits (at least until I update my toolchain):

$ nano -l src/common.make
Code:
 2 TARGET?=kobo
 3 CXX_BIN?=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-g++
 4 CC_BIN?=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-gcc
 5 STRIP_BIN?=arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-strip
$ nano -l scripts/build/build_kobo_root.sh
Code:
25   arm-kobo-linux-gnueabihf-strip *
$ nano -l src/rmkit/input/events.cpy
Code:
241 //        case ABS_MT_SLOT:
242 //          slot = data.value;
243 //          break
...
282 //        case ABS_MT_DISTANCE:
283 //          slots[slot].distance = self.distance = data.value
284 //          if self.distance > 0:
285 //            self.left = 0
286 //          break
$ nano -l src/rmkit/input/input.cpy
Code:
 69 //          if ev_data[i].code == SYN_DROPPED:
 70 //            syn_dropped = true
 71 //            event.handle_drop(fd)
 72 //            continue
$ nano -l src/remux/launcher.cpy
Code:
31 #define TOUCH_FLOOD_EVENT ABS_DISTANCE



***UPDATE***
NEED TO CORRECT FILE PATH AND FILENAME FOR EXPORTS TO WORK PROPERLY. NEW HARMONY BINARY(ZIPPED) IS UPLOADED.
***


$ nano -l src/rmkit/defines.h
Code:
 17 #define SAVE_DIR "/opt/data/harmony"

$ nano -l src/rmkit/fb/fb.cpy
Code:
421       strftime(buffer,sizeof(buffer),"%Y-%m-%d%H_%M_%S",timeinfo);
***

$ ARCH=kobo make input_demo

$ ARCH=kobo make simple

$ ARCH=kobo make harmony


Harmony works!
(And it's a beauty.) :
https://rmkit.dev/apps/harmony



2)
Using your .ctags file (which was actually even included in rmkit):

$ cd myglobal/

$ cd rmkit-master/src/

$ cp .ctags ~

$ nano -l ~/.globalrc
Code:
114         :langmap=Okp\:.cpy.okp:\
...
155         :gtags_parser=Okp\:$ctagslib:\
$ export GTAGSLABEL=ctags

$ gtags --explain

$ htags

$ elinks HTML/index.html


And we're browsing the .cpy files!

Well that was fun.

great, glad you got it working! i have a bit more code to write and test to improve harmony for touch usage, but i think it should work at the basics now.

few more notes:

1. stb.arm.o is only used at compile / link time, it doesn't need to be added to device
2. let us know if there's any apps you are interested in / want built. simple apps should work on device, but they sometimes may need their scaling modified (it really depends on who wrote the original app)
3. descriptions of each app should be available in the rmkit-dev/rmkit README.md (either at the top level or in the app directory)

Heheh, now what kind of dumdum would mistake object files for shared object files?
Now please excuse me while I, errr, tidy up some, err, fonts...

2)
I am actually so happy to have rmkit and harmony already.
-The history lets me undo my last stroke.
-The layers let me import a photo of a nature scene or one-page document, draw on top of it, and save just the layer I drew.
See end of https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...62&postcount=8
*I did have to mod the source to get the file export working. SEE UPDATE:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...7&postcount=10


But if you are letting me dream, someone did ask about an open source note-taking app.
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=355579

Maybe something like Xournal:
https://xournal.sourceforge.net/

Your Harmony is so far advanced already - maybe add pdf import, multiple-page document handling, and onscreen keyboard input?
Okay that actually sounds like a lot of work!

(If the shy people who read this developer forum ever get around to reporting their device results, then I guess the announcement could be posted on the main Kobo forum, for even more feedback (and support requests!)

Not impressed with Xournal compared to Sage/Elipsa advanced notebook. Little more than an organised sketch app, like Kobo basic notebooks or reMarkable.
Tried on Lenovo X201 which has Wacom screen.

Yes, you explained it here:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=355579

But this is open source, so I imagine if Xournal collects the strokes, some other layer could do the conversion to characters?

Also Quoth, would you be interested in trying rmkit on your Ellipsa/Sage?

Currently wouldn't work on a Sage/Elipsa, that's another SoC & display driver entirely.
