Hi,

I Can make getlibs and success when I using an imported example in MTB2.0

But when I click "New Application", it still fail to get the BSP list from the Github.

It do not always get fail, sometime it can be success to creator new application.

I copy some *.lib file from the project which success to create, move to the example project by import, and make getlibs, it still works. just like the capture I attac below.

I am using my private desktop, and without any company firewall.

I am not sure it is the same issue as the Using ModusToolbox Software Behind a Firewall – KBA228784

Hi,

A workaround trying to solve this issue has been published at our Blog site. You can try it before any new idea comes out. See this:

If you aren't behind a firewall, then you need not follow the steps mentioned in the KBA: Using ModusToolbox Software Behind a Firewall – KBA228784

In ModusToolbox go to Window > Preferences and set Action Provider to Direct as shown below:

After this, click New Application. If you still see a blank list while choosing BSP, please share the log generated in the console.

Dheeraj,

Thanks for the advice.

But I think it is the network issue:

1."New Application" will read manifest.xml raw file by URL:

http://github.com/cypresssemiconductorco/mtb-super-manifest/raw/v2.X/mtb-super-manifest.xml

which will actually jump to

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cypresssemiconductorco/mtb-super-manifest/v2.X/mtb-super-manifest...

To get the raw file instead of git clone to local.

2. Chinese network seems not stable for the https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ . It will block this domain name sometime (maybe most of the time).

3. But git clone can work, even it may be only few hundreds KB/s.

What I suggest is that, it can git clone the manifest.xml from repo to local path like C:\Users\xxx\Documents\MTB for example to keep the list.

Everytime click "New Application" just check update, then use local list. 

I think PSoC Creator do the simliar thing to download example and new component in C:\Users\xxx\Documents\PSoC Creator\4.2.

Maybe it is already a plan, but I think it will provide better experience to me.

Thanks & Regards,

RayL

Hi RaLe_4523841​,

There might be a way to improve the situation to you. You can use Fiddler to locally cache the file mtb-super-manifest.xml then "hijack" the request from MTW and redirect it to the locally cached file. Here is the brief illustration:

  1. Download and install Fiddler.
  2. Download the attached file mtb-super-manifest.xml.
  3. In Fiddler, uses the AutoResponder feature to capture the exact request 'http://github.com/cypresssemiconductorco/mtb-super-manifest/raw/v2.X/mtb-super-manifest.xml' and setup a rule that when a request matches this exact URL pattern, respond with the file you specified, i.e., the attached file mtb-super-manifest.xml. See this page for details.
  4. Have MTW setup to use Fiddler as its proxy server. See this page for details.
  5. Enjoy!

Like you said before, when initiating a new application, the file mtb-super-manifest.xml is the file and the only file that MTW access remotely via HTTP, which is usually hijacked and examined. But all the following remote access from MTW is under git's version control and the data are exchanged via git protocol, which will usually not be touched by firewalls.

So the file mtb-super-manifest.xml is the file and the only file you need to cache locally and you are then free to use the "New -> ModusToolbox IDE Application" to download new examples and projects.

PS: the attached file mtb-super-manifest.xml could be out-dated. Remember to cache the file from the original URL when it's available.
