recently I got aware of NuttX which looks very interesting to me.
Now, we are considering making use of NuttX in a commercial project (up to now, we are using FreeRTOS). In our project, we want to use STM32L4R7 as MCU, we ordered STM32L4R9I-DISCO for evaluation pruposes already.
Now, I have a few questions:
I started building the NuttX simulation on the Linux Subsystem of Windows 10 yesterday and I was able to compile and log into nsh. So far so good. When building Nuttx for STM32, I would probably start using the existing config for stm32l476g-disco, correct? What are the next steps? How much effort is needed to adapt this existing configuration to our board (STM32L4R9I-DISCO)?
In general: how mature is the port for STM32L4? Is it considered experimental, production ready or something in between? I'm asking since our schedule is tight, and we don't have resources and don't want to put a lot of energy in resolving potential issues me might faced with.
I know my question night be vague, however, with help of the list, I would like to get at least a feeling what might be expecting us. In our use case, we see clear advantages to having a POSIX compatible OS (opposed to the thin layer provided by FreeRTOS). Howvever, we don't have any experience with NuttX right now which makes the decision really difficult for us. Maybe someone can shed some light on this.
