Max gen~ build fails


Building Max gen~ plugin fails following the instructions here:

How to reproduce

  1. Download max-gen-deploy tool at

  2. Run ./

  3. The process fails at
    File "", line 45, in <module> release_process = json.loads( File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/json/", line 338, in loads return _default_decoder.decode(s) File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/json/", line 366, in decode obj, end = self.raw_decode(s, idx=_w(s, 0).end()) File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/json/", line 384, in raw_decode raise ValueError("No JSON object could be decoded") ValueError: No JSON object could be decoded

Expected/suggested solution

The error states that it can’t decode a JSON object. So maybe the url ( at which the script looks for a JSON file is no longer available. I’m just guessing here. But I would like to hear if there’s something I could do on my end.

Have you heard back anything on this? I can’t seem to get either the Max Duo package or the method you are trying to work either. I am getting the same errors.

Unfortunately, I haven’t heard back. Would still like a solution to this though.
