[Apologies if this should be in the beginners category!]
I am supervising student starting a project for the Raspberry pi 3 with openFrameworks.However, I have no experience with the Raspberry pi 3, so I have two very basic questions:
Is it a good idea to not use cross compilation and just use the Raspberry pi 3 for development (my student has an HDMI monitor). I’ve read that it is ok for the pi 3, but most of the documentation is for cross-compilation so I am not sure if I understood correctly!
If the anser is yes: If it it were me, I would use emacs (I love emacs). But I am not sure if one is to recommend emacs to a young person with not a lot of previous experience in programming. Are there IDEs that people use on the Raspberry when not cross-compiling? Or, put it the other way round: Should I recommend my student to cross-compile from his Mac because it will make his life easier?
(This thread has me worried too: Install of on raspberry pi 3
because I believe it’s related to my questions but I don’t understand how . My student will work in a project using video and webcam attached to the raspberry. But he has raspbian installed. Should he have archlinux instead??)
Many many thanks in advance!
