    Resources in External Filesystem

    WeWh_3706036

      I am trying to add resources to the external filesystem (filesystem.bin) and I have configured the makefile per this example: Keep web content (.html, .js) on external flash in a filesystem .

      The WIFI firmware  is contained within the Filesystem.bin and the resource files correctly show "RESOURCES_IN_FILESYSTEM".  However I cannot get the resources in the application to be part of the filesystem.  I am using the snip/resource read and I have tried  using :

       

      LOCATION_CONFIGURABLE_RESOURCES += apps/resource_read/test_file01.txt

       

      Additionally Platform_config.h contains:

      /*  WICED Resources uses a filesystem */

      #define USES_RESOURCE_FILESYSTEM

       

      /* Location on SPI Flash where filesystem starts */

      #define FILESYSTEM_BASE_ADDR  ( 0 )

       

      My current Makefile is:

          Hello:

          I think we already put the resource files into filesystem.bin

           

          echo ./tools/common/Win32/mk_wicedfs32 build/snip.resource_read-CYW943907AEVAL1F/filesystem.bin build/snip.resource_read-CYW943907AEVAL1F/resources/Staging/

          ./tools/common/Win32/mk_wicedfs32 build/snip.resource_read-CYW943907AEVAL1F/filesystem.bin build/snip.resource_read-CYW943907AEVAL1F/resources/Staging/

          ./tools/common/Win32/mk_wicedfs32 build/snip.resource_read-CYW943907AEVAL1F/filesystem.bin build/snip.resource_read-CYW943907AEVAL1F/resources/Staging/
