ModusToolbox™ Offline Libraries

This package enables you to use ModusToolbox Project Creator and Library Manager tools without a persistent internet connection. It contains all the ModusToolbox repos referenced in the ModusToolbox manifest files. We continue to recommend working with the online content - so you always have access to the latest software - but this is a useful alternative method of accessing libraries for users who are frequently working offline.

Download the latest (v1.1 August 2021) offline content (zip file) here: cypress.com/modustoolbox-offline-content

Installation

 

1. If you do not already have a hidden directory named .modustoolbox in your home directory, create one. Using Cygwin on Windows for example:

 

mkdir -p "$USERPROFILE/.modustoolbox"

 

Note: If you installed ModusToolbox in a non-default location, modify the command for the appropriate location of the .modustoolbox folder. Refer to the ModusToolbox Installation Guide for additional details (cypress.com/ModusToolboxInstallGuide).

 

2. Extract the ZIP archive to the ~/.modustoolbox sub-directory in your home directory. The resulting path should be: ~/.modustoolbox/offline.

 

The following is a Cygwin on Windows command-line example to use for extracting the content:

 

unzip -qbod "$USERPROFILE/.modustoolbox" modustoolbox-offline-content.zip

 

Note: If you previously installed a copy of the offline content, you should delete the existing ~/.modustoolbox/offline directory before extracting the archive. Using Cygwin on Windows for example:

 

rm -rf "$USERPROFILE/.modustoolbox/offline"

 

Usage

 

To use the Project Creator CLI in offline mode, execute the tool with the --offline argument. For example:

 

project-creator-cli --board-id CY8CPROTO-062-4343W --app-id mtb-example-psoc6-hello-world --offline

 

To use the Project Creator GUI or Library Manager GUI in offline mode, select 'Offline' from the 'Settings' menu (refer to the appropriate user guide for details).

 

The tools execute the "make getlibs" command under the hood to download/update the firmware libraries. To execute the 'getlibs' target in offline mode, pass the CY_GETLIBS_OFFLINE=true argument:

 

make getlibs CY_GETLIBS_OFFLINE=true

 

Refer to the ModusToolbox User Guide for additional details (cypress.com/ModusToolboxUserGuide).

 

Third-Party Dependencies

 

ModusToolbox Offline Content might include 3rd-party code libraries that include a subset of their project history. If you would like to download the full historical information for third-party content manually, execute the following commands in a terminal:

 

git -C ~/.modustoolbox/offline/git/https___git.savannah.nongnu.org_git_lwip/lwip fetch --unshallow

git -C ~/.modustoolbox/offline/git/https___github.com_ARMmbed_mbedtls/mbedtls fetch --unshallow

git -C ~/.modustoolbox/offline/git/https___github.com_aws_aws-iot-device-sdk-embedded-C/aws-iot-device-sdk-embedded-C fetch --unshallow

git -C ~/.modustoolbox/offline/git/https___github.com_JuulLabs-OSS_mcuboot/mcuboot fetch --unshallow

 

Note: If you installed ModusToolbox in a non-default location, modify the command for the appropriate location of the .modustoolbox folder. Refer to the ModusToolbox Installation Guide for additional details (cypress.com/ModusToolboxInstallGuide).
