TIE-475New FeatureVSCode: Add debugging capabilties for Qt data typesNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: Currently when developing Qt applications there seems to be a limitation with debugging Qt data types/objects. For example when debugging the value of a `QString`, you'll see basic information like the size of the data, but it won't actually show the value of the string. This is due to Qt implementing somewhat complex data types that can't be easily parsed by GDB. So we should seek to improve the debugging experience for Qt applications, by at least allowing proper debugging of Qt-specific data types, if possible.

TIE-415New FeatureAs a user I want to have the mnemonic tag used instead of the image name in dockerfile and command lineNot applicableMoses (IDE Backend)Low

Description: The IDE Extensions should be able to push docker-compose files to Torizon OTA.

TIE-245New FeatureAs a user, I want to configure TorizonCore using a Graphical User Interface on VS CodeAll supported modulesVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: The Torizon Platform is envisioned to be an easy-to-use platform for embedded systems. To achieve this goal, Toradex provides the TorizonCore OS as a binary distribution, which means you don't need to build it from source with the Yocto Project, for instance.
To help you customize TorizonCore without having to rebuild the OS, we provide the TorizonCore Builder tool. It is a command-line tool that allows customizing the OS behavior, device tree, splash screen, among other features.
As a further step to improve your end-to-end development experience, we are creating an integration between TorizonCore Builder and the Visual Studio Code Extension for Torizon. This integration will abstract the calls to command-line commands and make it easier and faster to deploy and test your changes to the board, among other benefits.

Description: Using VS Code Insiders version with the C/C++ Template returns "Error property 'program' is missing or empty"

Workaround: This is an internal version, so no public workaround

TIE-148FixedC/C++ support does not work on insider's builds of VSCodeVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: The extension registers itself to run inside the container by creating a subfolder in the folder where VSCode keeps its extensions. Unfortunately this path is different between stable and insiders builds and so extension does not run there.

TIE-76FixedVisual Studio Code for Linux fails attempting to add a device via serialAll supported modulesMoses (IDE Backend)Low

Description: Customer in referenced community post has an issue in the VScode extension where attempting to add a device via serial seems to fail.

TIE-94FixedCommand to create ASP.NET application fails if the extension is not loadedVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: Visual studio code activates the extensions on different event. Torizon extension is activated and loaded when an existing project is opened, when a new python or .NET application is create or when the Torizon bar is used. ASP.NET app creation command was not considered an activation event and so it fails if you try to execute it when the extension is not already loaded.

Workaround: Open the torizon bar by clicking on the Torizon logo in the Visual Studio code Activity Bar on the left side of VS Code main window, this will activate the extension and allow you to run the ASP.NET application create command.

TIE-74FixedSSH error on Windows when debugging a .NET application from a folder that is not under user's homeVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: When developing a .NET application that is stored in a folder that is not under the user home or is accessible to all users, you get an error when trying to start debugger. On the debug console you can see an error message from SSH complaining about the fact that the permissions for the key file are too open.

Workaround: Move your project under your home folder or change it's access rights to make it accessible only from your user.

TIE-6New FeatureASP.NET templates for Visual Studio Code ExtensionsVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: ASP.NET provides multiple application types. Current template uses basic MVC, but this may not fit customer’s requirement.

Not Planned
TIE-584Feature RequestAs a user, I want to easily debug Debian libsNot applicableMoses (IDE Backend), Visual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: The IDE Extensions debugger comes configured in a way that it’s very easy to debug the application source code. It does not include symbols and source code for the Debian packages in the SDK, though.
This makes it one step harder for users to get more meaningful stack traces or “step into“ library functions, often useful to debug potential issues with the libraries themselves.

Workaround: To shorten this gap, it was documented one way to allow library debugging on Add Debug Symbols and Source Code From Debian Feeds.

TIE-581Feature RequestAs a user, I never want project IDs and keys committed to my Git repository by defaultNot applicableMoses (IDE Backend)Low

Description: As of today, to keep IDs and keys outside a Git repository, you need to run the command Torizon: Remove IDs and keys from application

We plan to deprecate this command and keep all related files ignored in the .gitignore that generated when you create a new Torizon project from template.

TIE-465Feature RequestAs a user, I want to develop CMake-based projects with Visual StudioNot applicableVisual Studio ExtensionLow

Description: The Visual Studio Extension for Torizon does not support a CMake oriented workflow.

Workaround: We focus our development on the Visual Studio Code Extension for Torizon. It is a cross-platform environment, supports the C/C++ workflows and already provides templates for CMake.
Read the article C/C++ Development and Debugging on TorizonCore Using Visual Studio Code to learn more.

TIE-369Feature RequestAs a user, I want to see human-readable numbers on VS Code devices and containers info panelNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: In the VS Code IDE Extension info panel, some memory numbers are presented in full, instead of using engineering notation (for example kB, MB, GB, etc.). This makes it hard to read those numbers.

TIE-368Feature RequestAs a user, I want a button to create a new Torizon project on VS CodeNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: At the moment, we only support creating Torizon projects using the VS Code command palette. For new users, it may be interesting to have a button that guides them through their first project creation.

Workaround: Create and configure a project from the command palette.

TIE-139Known Issue.NET containers use port 22 for debug ssh and can't run in host modeVisual Studio Code Extension

Description: It's possible to fix the issue by configuring a custom port in launch.json (replacing the ${port} entry) and by adding to buildcommands a command that changes it in sshd configuration.

TIE-17Feature RequestProvide LICENSE file for VS Code extensionVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: The Visual Studio marketplace allows providing license information for extensions. Visual Studio Code extension for Torizon has an empty license at the moment.

TIE-82Known IssueError (500) When Try to Debug .NET AppVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Backlog
TIE-612Known IssueCreating a new "Torizon Image Customization Project" with a quarterly build sets "build-date: NaN" in tcbuild.yamlNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: When creating a new TorizonCore Customization Project with the VSCode IDE Extension, it prompts you to select the TorizonCore version to be used. After the setup is finished, the generated template tcbuild.yaml sets the property "build-date" as "NaN"

Workaround: For quarterly or LTS images, remove the "build-date" field.

TIE-594Feature RequestAs a developer, I want to review and update the list of supported SoMs in VS CodeColibri iMX8X, Colibri iMX6ULL, Colibri iMX7Moses (IDE Backend)Low

Description: Recently, the support of some SoMs was dropped (apalis-imx8x, colibri-imx8x-v10b, colibri-imx7, colibri-imx6ull) and others were added (colibri-imx6ull-emmc). We are reviewing the list of supported SoMs, adding the missing ones and removing the obsolete ones.

TIE-593Feature RequestAs a user, I want a more obvious command to add a new Torizon project configurationNot applicableMoses (IDE Backend)Low

Description: A new project configuration is useful in some cases, for example when adding support for two different platforms (32-bit and 64-bit) in the same project, or testing a new configuration for the same platform.

In the command palette, the command to add a new configuration will be rephrased from "Torizon: Add support for a different platform" to "Torizon: Add a new configuration".

TIE-583Feature RequestAs a developer, I want to educate users on what is provided and what is expected of them about .gitignore filesNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: We plan to make some changes to .gitignore files, deprecating project-specific entries. With that, we will also document what is supported and what is expected from users with regards to .gitignore files generated by the IDE Extension.

TIE-582Feature RequestAs a developer, I want to remove project-specific and only keep Torizon-specific .gitignore entriesNot applicableMoses (IDE Backend)Low

Description: We don't have resources to add and - especially - maintain .gitignore files for all technologies we support (C Makefile, autotools, CMake, Qt QML, Qt Widgets, and so on). Let's call this project-specific entries.
We want, though, to keep .gitignore for everything that we create and users should not keep versioned. Let's call this Torizon-specific entries.
For this reason, we are removing support for project-specific entries and keeping only the Torizon-specific ones.

TIE-580Feature RequestAs a user, I want to split Torizon configuration files in version-controlled and ignored with .gitignoreNot applicableMoses (IDE Backend)Low

Description: At the moment, often the Torizon configuration files are modified and Git keeps stating they have changed. It contains info that is not essential to the project. Let's call this info *environment configuration*.
On the other hand, the same file has very important info that is essential to the project and that only changes when you modify them, let's call it *project configuration*.
It is annoying to keep being asked to commit environment configuration if needed at all. We plan to split it into two files and keep the environment configuration in .gitignore.

TIE-573Known IssueInput validation failure on QTDesignStudio preferences "URI with a scheme is expected"Not applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: The current Torizon QtDesignStudio support plugin asks for a folder where the QtDesignStudio is installed. Any input, even a valid one, triggers a red error saying "URI with a scheme is expected".

TIE-560Known Issuebuild_release task not working on Qt Based projectsNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: There was a report that the build_release for Qt-based projects is not working. We will investigate it and, if the bug is confirmed, fix it.

TIE-545Known IssueMisleading warning about C/C++ toolchain not being foundNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: On a Makefile or CMake based project, in the "c_cpp_properties.json" file, there is the "compilerPath" variable that (by default) is set to "${env:CC}". This seems to be ok since "$CC" holds (by default) "arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc" and this compiler is accessible from the terminal.

The Issue is that the “PROBLEMS” tab shows a warning "Cannot find arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc" and there is the squiggle under the "${env:CC}".

Workaround: Just ignore the warning, everything works as expected.

TIE-533Known IssueAs a user, I want to be able to create C/C++ projects on WSL or any other remote connection by VS CodeNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: VS Code has a feature to remote access another development machine through remote SSH connections.
You may have two machines where you do development: (1) is a headless machine where the processing is done, and (2) is a computer where you run VS Code and do the programming.
Also, the same mechanism is used by VS Code when you have (1) an instance of VS Code installed on Windows and (2) want to create a Torizon C/C++ project in WSL.

In such situations, when creating a Torizon C/C++ project you will get the following error: The Remote-Containers extension (ms-vscode-remote.remote-containers) is required to develop C/C++ applications on Torizon.

Workaround: Currently, it is only possible to create a new Torizon C/C++ project on a local machine, without the use of the remote SSH connection. Please create your project on the same machine you have VS Code installed and don’t use WSL.

TIE-518Known IssueInvalid docker-compose.yml exported when using the field extraparams to set the "cap_add" propertyNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: When exporting a docker-compose.yml using the VS Code extension, the "cap_add" field is formatted in a way that makes the YML file invalid. This required manual intervention to fix the file syntax after exporting it.
There are many scenarios where you'd need to set the "cap_add" field. One of them would be to configure the container to use the host network, required for using the CAN on TorizonCore.

Workaround: Manually fix the syntax issue.

TIE-517Known IssueVS Code doesn't automatically switch focus to the debug console when running a Python application for the second timeNot applicableVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: When you deploy and debug a Python application for the second time in a row, VS Code may not switch focus from the terminal to the debug console.

Workaround: Manually click on the debug console to switch focus.

TIE-467Known IssueSometimes invoking commands implemented by the extension generates an error.Visual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: If a command is invoked very early during vscode startup the extension may not have registered the appropriate handlers and this will lead to an error.

Workaround: Wait until extension initializazion has been completed before using the commands.

TIE-459Known IssueSDK container not existing notification is not displayed when re-opening an existing C/C++ projectVisual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: When opening a project that has no SDK container the tool should prompt for a rebuild. Unfortunately this does not happen 100% of the times.

Workaround: Rebuild SDK container manually when re-opening the project on a different machine or after having removed containers from your development machine.

TIE-451Known IssuePossible Incompatibility between our extension and VS 16.10.2Visual Studio ExtensionLow

Description: When upgrading to release 16.10 build and other features no longer work, due to changes in VS2019 workflow for Linux.

Workaround: Keep using VS2019 16.7 until a fix is released.

TIE-449Known Issuersync issues when application container is running as rootMoses (IDE Backend)

Description: After adding the --delete flag to ensure that files removed from application folder on dev PC are also removed from the host there is an issue with the __pycache__ folder, created by the python interpreter. When root is used as container user, the folder is owned exclusively by root and can't be deleted by rsync running as torizon.

Workaround: There are multiple workarounds: - run the application as torizon user until issue is fixed - add ENV PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE="1" as env property to avoid cache generation from python interpreter - manually cleanup the pycache folder before deployment

TIE-428Feature RequestAs a user, I want container rebuilds to happen only when I changed properties that can be used inside the generated dockerfile.Moses (IDE Backend)Low

Description: Actually, any change to the configuration will force a rebuild of the container. This, in addition to the need of re-deploying it to the device, increases development time.

TIE-397Feature RequestAs a user, I want to configure extra arguments to be sent to Docker commands using the command-line syntax instead of the Docker Python APINot applicableMoses (IDE Backend), Visual Studio Code ExtensionLow

Description: As of now, the IDE extensions provide a field name "extraparams" that allows users to pass extra arguments to the Docker calls when running a container. Those extra arguments are expected in the Docker Python API syntax, since it is the same API used by Moses, the IDE back-end.

This is a bit confusing, since everywhere else in our documentation we use the command-line syntax instead. Therefore, to bridge this gap, we are introducing a configuration field named "dockercmdline" that has the same purpose as "extraparams" but accepts the command-line syntax instead of the Python API syntax.
