Can anyone show me the steps to add new custom mfe to tutor (16v)

Hi everyone, I am running tutor 16v (palm) and I having issues to add new custom mfe.
I have read the documentation in tutor-mfe but I am still unable to run it.

Here I added the plugins as described in the documentation ( I directly used the frontend template )

Then I enable the plugin.

And finally when I trying to launch the plateform ( tutor dev launch )

If anyone has already did this steps, I will be very grateful for showing me up the exact steps.

I have had success using custom MFEs. In my case, rather than cloning the template application, I cloned existing MFEs, such as the profile app: GitHub - openedx/frontend-app-profile: Open edX micro-frontend application for managing user profile information.

Here’s what I did:

In my plugin:

from tutormfe.hooks import MFE_APPS
def _add_gym_mfe(mfes):
    mfes["profile"] = {
        "repository": "",
        "port": 1995,
        "version": "gym", # using a custom branch
        "refs": "",
    return mfes

Then, enable the plugin (sometimes I go the extra mile of disabling the plugin first, then re-enabling it after making changes. Not sure if this really makes a difference).
tutor plugins enable pluginname

After that, save the config:
tutor config save

Then, build the images:
tutor images build mfe (although sometimes I just build all tutor images build all. Not sure if this makes a difference or not.)

Then, start it up:
tutor dev launch

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. I’m don’t know how this would work with frontend-template application. I think you’re supposed to create a repo based on the template rather than using the template directly the way you’ve specified.
  2. One thing I have not been able to do at all is bind-mount a local folder of an MFE. I would love to know if anyone has had success doing this with Tutor Palm.

Let me know if that much helps you get further along than before.
