Christine:

This is a good news. Thanks for your great work. With this change, FMMT
doesn’t depend on GenSec, GenFfs and GenFv C tool. Right? If yes, can those
logic be reused to replace GenSec, GenFfs and GenFv C tools?



Thanks

主题: [edk2-devel] RFC: Replace FMMT Tool from C to Python Version



Hi everyone,



I would like to propose the new FMMT Python tool, which is used to replace
the origin C version tool.

Currently the FMMT C tool is saved in edk2-staging repo, but its quality and
coding style can’t meet the Edk2 quality, which is hard to maintain
(Hard/Duplicate Code; Regression bugs; Restrict usage).

The new Python version keeps same functions with origin C version. It has
higher quality and better coding style, and it is much easier to extend new
functions and to maintain.



You can get the FMMT Python tool through below link.



<https://github.com/tianocore/edk2-staging/tree/PyFMMT>

If you are interested in that, pls have a try.

Looking forward to your feedback~



Thanks,

Christine (Yuwei)
