RTIC hello

RTIC, Real-Time Interrupt-driven Concurrency, is a framework for building evented, time sensitive applications.

✅ Open the src/bin/rtic-hello.rs file.

RTIC applications are written in RTIC's Domain Specific Language (DSL). The DSL extends Rust syntax with custom attributes like #[init] and #[idle].

RTIC makes a clearer distinction between the application's initialization phase, the #[init] function, and the application's main loop or main logic, the #[idle] function. The initialization phase runs with interrupts disabled and interrupts are re-enabled before the idle function is executed.

rtic::app is a procedural macro that generates extra Rust code, in addition to the user's functions. The fully expanded version of the macro can be found in the file target/rtic-expansion.rs. This file will contain the expansion of the procedural macro for the last compiled RTIC application.

✅ Build the rtic-hello example and look at the generated rtic-expansion.rs file.

You can use rustfmt on target/rtic-expansion.rs to make the generated code easier to read. Among other things, the file should contain the following lines. Note that interrupts are disabled during the execution of the init function:

unsafe extern "C" fn main() -> ! {
    let mut core: rtic::export::Peripherals = rtic::export::Peripherals::steal().into();
    fn __rtic_init_resources<F>(f: F)
        F: FnOnce(),
    __rtic_init_resources(|| {
        let (shared_resources, local_resources, mut monotonics) =
