4For information about OpenEmbedded see their website: 4Poky is an integration of various components to form a complete prepackaged
5 5build system and development environment. It features support for building
6customised embedded device style images. There are reference demo images
7featuring a X11/Matchbox/GTK themed UI called Sato. The system supports
8cross-architecture application development using QEMU emulation and a
9standalone toolchain and SDK with IDE integration.
11Additional information on the specifics of hardware that Poky supports
12is available in README.hardware. Further hardware support can easily be added
13in the form of layers which extend the systems capabilities in a modular way.
15As an integration layer Poky consists of several upstream projects such as
16BitBake, OpenEmbedded-Core, Yocto documentation and various sources of information
17e.g. for the hardware support. Poky is in turn a component of the Yocto Project.
