Subject: [dpdk-dev] [RFC] usertools: Replace dpdk-setup with a python curses based script
Date: Tue, 18 Aug 2020 17:39:19 +0500
Message-ID: <CABoZmYOPfcbw83zmYTT-ksETp-M+ebj4NG7-YE=5ZQzoOA4dRA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

dpdk-setup has been used for a long time in order to compile and
configure dpdk along with running some basic applications. dpdk-setup
uses the make build system to compile which is now deprecated. In addition
to this it has been discussed on the mailing list a few times that
dpdk-setup UI is quite old and it needs improvement along with
addition of some other facilities. This had created a need for python
curses based script that would provide similar functionality as
dpdk-setup but with more options and better UI. The idea is almost similar
to kernel's make menuconfig. The reason to select python curses is that it
comes as a standard library with python. The script will use the meson build
system for compilation.

Here is a link containing suggested UI:

The following options will be present in the Menu and Sub-Menu:

Compile
    Compile with gcc
    Compile with icc
    Compile with clang
    Compile examples
Cross compile
    arm64_armada_linux_gcc

    arm64_n1sdp_linux_gcc
    arm64_octeontx2_linux_gcc
    arm64_stingray_linux_gcc
    arm64_thunderx2_linux_gcc

Run Applications
    Test application → prompt user to enter flags and possibly build
directory name. Also give a default options for flags
    Testpmd application → prompt user to enter flags and possibly
build directory name. Also give a default options for flags

In addition to this, the user will have the facility to provide any
additional flags for compilation if he/she wishes to.
