AWS Utils Library for ROS2
This is the common library for all of AWS RoboMaker ROS2 packages. It builds on top of the generic interfaces defined by utils-common to provide ROS2-specific helper functions and classes implementations for things such as logging and parameter loading.
The source code is released under an Apache 2.0.
Supported ROS2 Distributions
Pending bloom-release. In the future, you'd be able to install the latest released version of this package using the following command on Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y ros-$ROS_DISTRO-aws-ros2-common
Building from Source
To build from source you'll need to create a new workspace, clone and checkout the latest release branch of this repository, install all the dependencies, and compile. If you need the latest development features you can clone from the
master branch instead of the latest release branch. While we guarantee the release branches are stable, the
master should be considered to have an unstable build due to ongoing development.
Create a ROS workspace and a source directory:
mkdir -p ~/ros-workspace/src
Clone the package into the source directory
cd ~/ros-workspace/src git clone https://github.com/aws-robotics/utils-ros2.git -b release-latest
cd ~/ros-workspace sudo apt-get update && rosdep update rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src -r -y
Note: If building the master branch instead of a release branch you may need to also checkout and build the master branches of the packages this package depends on.
Build the packages
cd ~/ros-workspace && colcon build
