Important Information - FreeRTOS Interactive

The FreeRTOS Interactive site contains user contributed code, which is separate from the official FreeRTOS code base. A separate page provides information on the difference between officially supported FreeRTOS code and user contributed code.


Using User Contributed Code

Terms and conditions

Contributed files are provided by the community in the hope that they will be useful.

You cannot use contributed files unless you agree that you use the software 'as is'. Contributed files are provided WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranties of NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Real Time Engineers Ltd. disclaims all conditions and terms, be they implied, expressed, or statutory.

By downloading files you are agreeing to accept responsibility to ensure the files are not malicious in any way (for example, to virus scan the files before use), and to absolve Real Time Engineers ltd. of any responsibility or liability for inappropriate content (viruses, Trojans, worms, intellectual property infringements, legal breaches, etc.).


Contributing Source Code to FreeRTOS

Terms and conditions

By uploading (contributing) code (as opposed to linking to code) you are agreeing for the copyright of the portion of your upload that relates directly to the implementation of the FreeRTOS kernel being assigned to Real Time Engineers Ltd. This includes the portable layer files and any modification to the core kernel files. You also acknowledge that all the contributed code will be published in the Community Contributions section of the FreeRTOS site under the standard FreeRTOS license. Please do not upload any code if either you cannot agree to and comply with these terms and conditions or if you are not the current copyright owner.

Assigning the copyright is necessary to ensure there is a single point of ownership for all the available code, which in turn makes it easier for end users to include the code in their products. It does not mean you cannot credit yourself as the authour, and it is never our intention to claim credit for other peoples work! All contributions are gratefully received.


Uploading a contribution

Uploading (and therefore contributing) any code implies your acceptance of the terms and conditions detailed immediately above.

To upload a port, demo, driver or other related code:

  1. Create an account for yourself if you don't already have one - then log in.

  2. Select the relevant forum from the list at the bottom of the Community Contributions page, then create a new forum topic. To ensure the forums are easy to navigate please include both the processor and compiler name in the topic title.

  3. Use the newly created topic to write as much as you can about how to use the code, including how to build the code and which hardware it is configured to execute on.

  4. Upload the code as a single .zip, .tar or similar archive file as the topic attachment.

An account is only required to post to the forums - you do not need an account to simply view a forum or download existing code.
