Permissions problem when creating new project

21 Sep 2015

Hi

Trying to create a new program for micro:bit but receive error: You don't have permission to import the remote repository.

Any help gratefully received.

Many thanks

David.

Is anyone helping with this, I have exact same result?

Thanks

It seems the micro:bit platform is not public yet , we have to be a little patient ...

same problem here, is the micro:bit software proprietary?

Looks like they have an example program that is private :(

Hi all,

This example depends on the micro:bit 'DAL' (Device Abstraction Layer), which is a library built on top of mbed to abstract bits of the micro:bit - the other higher level languages like TouchDevelop build on top of this DAL, but it also has a great C++ API!

It is written by Lancaster University, and unfortunately they are currently required to keep it private. It absolutely *will be* open source, but not until after micro:bits have shipped to students in the UK.

So for now, on mbed, we'll switch out the main example to this one: https://developer.mbed.org/teams/Microbug/code/microbit-blinky/

which is public and also works :)

For now, we'll swap the default project on to something public :)

All,

Yes indeed - I'm afraid that we're not permitted to open source just yet (we're constrained by our legal agreements with the BBC concerning this). We will be open sourcing very soon though - as soon as we can.

We'll be releasing all the C/C++ code that is targeted by the higher level micro:bit languages (Blocks, Touch Develop, CK java Script, etc.), that contains drivers for all the devices on the board, and a full BLE profile that we've develop with Bluetooth SIG.

We're really looking forward to opening this up to encourage innovation from the mbed community... in the meantime we're finishing off a code scrub and documentation for the code to make it easier for the C/C++ communities to use.

best, Joe
