Template repository builder tool and CORS

for teaching, I previously used and found very nice the "template repository builder tool"

I built a new repo with same .htaccess : Index of /villonCycle4/seance2/templates
and get the : "Unable to load Project Template Data." error
This also occurs on all previous template repositories that previously worked fine.
.htaccess contents :
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"

Works when addressing template apps (.asc files) one by one, for example
: http://ai2.appinventor.mit.edu/?locale=fr_FR&repo=onvaessayer.org/villonCycle4/session2/templates/Hello1/Hello1.asc

Because App Inventor now loads over HTTPS, you need to use an HTTPS URL, try https://onvaessayer.org/villonCycle4/seance2/ instead.

I should also note that the original URL include the templates/ directory, but App Inventor will automatically add this so it's unnecessary to include it in the URL.

Thank you Ewan, this solves the problem. :slightly_smiling_face:
(Repositories are great for teaching. I them as canvas, intermediate app versions, so as not to loose students on the road. They also help make teachers feel safe and provide them with external support.)

I also noticed that there may be some delay on repository updates. For example when you delete or change an existing template. This is not a problem once you know (I will reread the doc).
