#Build the design. In the case of the linter flow this means compile and run linter

#Let's run an FPGA flow now using the icestorm flow
Flow2 = get_flow("icestorm")
#We reuse the EDAM but change flow_options to relevant options for the icestorm flow
edam["flow_options"] = {"nextpnr_options" : ["--up5k", "--package", "sg48"]}
#We also add a pin constraint file
edam["files"].append({"name" : "counter.pcf", "file_type" : "PCF"})
#And again we instantiate the flow, set up the tools and build the design
icestorm = Flow2(edam, '.')
#During the configure stage all project files and the flow graph (e.g. Makefile) is set up, but no EDA tools are run. This means we can do everything up until the build step on one machine and then export the design to another machine doing the actual build if we want. The second machine does not need to have Edalize installed
#Now we have a bitstream
