Efficient, deferred formatting for logging on embedded systems
defmt("de format", short for "deferred formatting") is a highly efficient logging framework that targets resource-constrained devices, like microcontrollers.
For more details about the framework check the book at https://defmt.ferrous-systems.com.
The git version of the defmt book can be viewed at https://defmt-next.ferrous-systems.com/.
The fastest way to get started with
defmtis to use our app-template to set up a new Cortex-M embedded project.
defmtin your existing project, follow our Application Setup guide.
defmtalways compiles on the latest
stablerust release. This is enforced by our CI building and testing against this version.
It still might work on older rust versions, but this isn't ensured.
The following diagram illustrates the user-facing and internal crates of the defmt framework.
