Run a Sample Project Using the Command Line

Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit
To run the Intel oneAPI IoT Toolkit on a remote system, see Running an Eclipse* Built Application on an SSH Target.
If you have not already configured your development environment, go to Configure Your System then return to this page. If you have already completed the steps to configure your system, continue with the steps below.
Command line development can be done with a terminal window or done through Visual Studio Code*. Some tasks can be automated using extensions. To learn more, see Using Visual Studio Code with Intel® oneAPI Toolkits.
To compile and run a sample:
  1. Download the sample using the oneAPI CLI Samples Browser.
  2. Compile and run the sample with

Download Samples using the oneAPI CLI Samples Browser

Use the oneAPI CLI Samples Browser to browse the collection of online oneAPI samples. As you browse the oneAPI samples, you can copy them to your local disk as buildable sample projects. Most oneAPI sample projects are built using Make or CMake, so the build instructions are included as part of the sample in a README file. The oneAPI CLI utility is a single-file, stand-alone executable that has no dependencies on dynamic runtime libraries.
An internet connection is required to download the samples for oneAPI toolkits. For information on how to use this toolkit offline, see Developing with Offline Systems in the Troubleshooting section.
  1. Open a
    terminal session
  2. If you did not complete the steps in One time set up for in the Configure Your System section,
    system variables by
    For root or sudo installations:
    . opt/intel/oneapi/
    For local user installations:
    . ~/intel/oneapi/
    The command above assumes you installed to the default folder. If you customized the installation folder,
    is in your custom folder.
    script can be managed using a configuration file, which is especially helpful if you need to initialize specific versions of libraries or the compiler, rather than defaulting to the "latest" version. For more details, see Using a Configuration File to Manage
    If you need to setup the environment in a non-POSIX shell, see
    oneAPI Development Environment Setup for more configuration options.
  3. In the same
    window, run the application
    (it should be in your PATH)
    The oneAPI CLI menu appears:
  4. Move the arrow key down to select
    Create a project
    , then press
    . The language selection will appear. If you installed
    Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit
    , but you want to work with the
    Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit
    and samples, ensure the IoT toolkit is installed. If it is not installed, install the toolkit then return to step 1 of this procedure.
  5. Select the language for your sample. For your first project, select
    , then press
    . The toolkit samples list appears.
  6. Use the down arrow to move down the list until you find the Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit section. Select the
    Hello IoT World
    Hello IoT World
    is a simple test application that will help verify that the tools are setup correctly and can access your system's GPU:
  7. After you select a sample, press
  8. Specify the location for the project. The default location includes the path from where the utility was run and the name of the project.
  9. Press
    to select Create, then press
Now that you have a sample downloaded, compile and run the sample with CMake:

Build and Run a Sample Project using CMake*

If you have not installed CMake, follow the directions Configure Your System.
Build and Run the
using CMake:
From the
directory, run the following commands:
mkdir build cd build cmake .. make make run make clean
A "Hello IoT" will appear on the command line.
Next, begin debugging the application with
. GDB will break at start of code.
