I’m an hobbyist that got interested in SDR and bought a LimeSDR to play around with. I read the tutorials, went through the github repositories, the doxygen documentation, read the datasheets and everything. A special thanks to @andrewback : your tutorials were great and allowed me to get more and more complex with SDR technology. However, I would like to make one step further and program my own software, just to do stuff without LimeSuite GUI, i.e., creating a simple radio receiver for local radio signals just for fun, with my own scripts and GUI and not interacting with LimeSuite GUI. Quite probably it will feature in the LimeSDR Made Easy posts anytime soon, but right now I can’t find that much documentation on where to start.
I remember long time ago I had a microcontrollers course at uni and we had an IDE to deal with it. I can’t find anything similar to LimeSDR in the documentation. And I never touched embedded systems programming ever time since, so I’m awfully green on the matter.
I also checked the SDRAngel project but it is too complex for me to follow at the moment.
Can someone just indicate me the first steps on how to start programming such thing? Software required and maybe some attentions to it? I have some knowledge on the programming itself, but a “Program your own application using a LimeSDR: first steps”, or something like that, would be very very appreciated. Thanks!
P.S: I’m planning to do the application in python if possible, or c++. Maybe the GUI using c++/qt or PyQT5 for practice.
Once again, thank you,
