Installing AGL SDKs

To build your AGL services or AGL applications using XDS you must install a SDK matching the target/board you want to use.

A SDK is a package that includes all tools you need to cross-build and cross-debug your service/application.

You can generate AGL SDK for the board you want to use or you can download a pre-packaged AGL SDK.

Install a new SDK from command line

Used sdks command of xds-cli tool to managed SDKs.
