Apio configuration

Apio backend is configured in the app/package.json file:

  • apio.min: minimum version (>=)
  • apio.max: maximum version (<)
  • apio.extras: list of external Python programmers (blackiceprog, tinyfpgab)
  • apio.external: load an external Apio package instead of the default one (e.g. /path/to/my/apio)
  • apio.branch: install Apio from the repository branch instead of PyPI.

An external Apio package can be also set on runtime using the ICESTUDIO_APIO environment variable.

Troubleshooting

If you get this error npm ERR! peerinvalid The package grunt@1.0.1 does not satisfy its siblings' peerDependencies requirements!, try to update your nodejs or execute:

npm update -g
