mbed import https://developer/mbed.org/users/mbed-demo/code/mbed_blinky [mbed] Working path "/u1/Projects/STM32/mbed" (directory) [mbed] Importing program "mbed_blinky" from "https://developer/mbed.org/users/mbed-demo/code/mbed_blinky" at latest revision in the current branch [mbed] ERROR: Unable to clone repository (https://developer/mbed.org/users/mbed-demo/code/mbed_blinky)So, it looks like whatever it wants to clone has vanished from their tutorial. In fact before I installed mercurial, it gave me the following error which yields extra information:
"hg clone --config progress.assume-tty=true https://developer/mbed.org/users/mbed-demo/code/mbed_blinky /u1/Projects/STM32/mbed/mbed_blinky" in "/u1/Projects/STM32/mbed".The video tutorial is dated 2016 and when I navigate to this URL using a browser, I do find something. It is labeled ast "Mbed 2, "deprecated"" -- so it seems like using the cli is very much the "path least traveled". There are a variety of buttons saying import, export, build, ... that would seem to be in some way integrated into their studio (perhaps). They all want me to log in, but I have yet to set up an Mbed login. However there is a link to download the repository as a zip file, and that seems to work. Then I do this:
cd mbed mkdir first cd first mv /home/tom/mbed_blinky-363f52776e64.zip . unzip mbed_blinky-363f52776e64.zip cd mbed_blinky-363f52776e64This gives me a directory with main.cpp and mbed.bld Now I try "mbed detect" and get the following error:
The mbed-os tools were not found in "/u1/Projects/STM32/mbed/first/mbed_blinky-363f52776e64"So, the quickstart video is out of date and basically useless. Note that nothing so far says anything at all about what hardware I might want to be using or how to set it up.
mbed new firstThis goes away at length with the following messages:
mbed new first [mbed] Working path "/u1/Projects/STM32" (directory) [mbed] Creating new program "first" (git) [mbed] Adding library "mbed-os" from "https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os" at branch/tag "latest" [mbed] Updating reference "mbed-os" -> "https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os/#8ef0a435b2356f8159dea8e427b2935d177309f8" [mbed] Auto-installing missing Python modules (jsonschema, mbed_cloud_sdk, jinja2, mbed_ls, mbed_host_tests, mbed_greentea, pyelftools, manifest_tool, icetea, pycryptodome, pyusb, cmsis_pack_manager, psutil, cbor)...It does finish (after maybe 2 minutes). And it does seem to have downloaded everything but the kitchen sink in the "mbed-os" directory.
