-j, --jobs int          Number of concurrent build jobs (default 8)
-l, --loglevel string   Log level (default "WARN")
-o, --outfile string    Filename to tee output to
-q, --quiet             Be quiet; only display error output

Compiles, links, and builds an ELF binary for the target named <target-name>. It builds an ELF file for the application specified by the app variable for the target-name target. The image can be loaded and run on the hardware specified by the bsp variable for the target. The command creates the ‘bin/’ directory under the project’s base directory (that the newt new command created) and stores the executable in the ‘bin/targets/<target-name>/app/apps/<app-name>’ directory. A manifest.json build manifest file is also generated in the same directory. This build manifest contains information such as build time, version, image name, a hash to identify the image, packages actually used to create the build, and the target for which the image is built.

You can specify a list of target names, separated by a space, to build multiple targets.




newt build my_blinky_sim

Builds an executable for the my_blinky_sim target. For example, if the my_blinky_sim target has app set to apps/blinky, you will find the generated .elf, .a, and .lst files in the ‘bin/targets/my_blinky_sim/app/apps/blinky’ directory.

newt build my_blinky_sim myble

Builds the images for the applications defined by the my_blinky_sim and myble targets.
