Apache Mynewt currently offers two ways to quickly get set up, each appealing to different personal preferences and levels of familiarity with embedded systems.
Option 1: All-in-one docker container that bundles Newt tool, developer toolchains and libraries. For this option, go to Docker instructions
Option 2: Step-by-step instructions to install the Newt tool, developer toolchains and libraries natively on your computer. For this option, go to Native Setup
Start a new project as explained under Create Your First Project. The core Mynewt OS is automatically downloaded as part of the project installation.
When you Create Your First Project you define a simulated target and run Project Blinky, the Hello World equivalent in the embedded world.
