I see that you may be going with Platform IO as a platform for developing Arduino code.  I use Platform IO with VS code as I prefer VS code for both python and micropython development.  However I see there is a new Arduino Pro IDE being developed and this may be better for the majority of your users.  Just a thought.

Hello, I switched over to PlatformIO some weeks ago. It's really much more comfortable and has some cool features.

@dronebot-workshop,

Bill, I see the thread to Platform.io has already been closed.  But when I saw this suggestion on the Arduino Pro IDE I immediately thought that you might combine this in with the Platform.io episode and review/compare both of these utilities as one video.

I'm off to download the Arduino Pro IDE right now to see how well it works.  I think I'll give that a shot on a Linux system for a change.  The Arudino Pro IDE appears to have incorporated a lot of features similar to Platform.io.  Especially the Intellisense which is a biggy for me.  I like it when the IDE offers up the names of my variables so I don't need to remember what I named them.   This also keeps me from misspelling them as well. ?

The Arduino Pro IDE is a great subject, and it deserves a video and article of its own, (as does PlatformIO). 

However the Arduino Pro IDE is currently just in the Alpha stage, and as such will likely change considerably before it is actually released.  So I'll keep this one on the back burner until it is at least in Beta.

Excellent suggestion!

Ironically that is exactly what I was originally doing last summer when I looked at PlatformIO - the working title of the article and video was "Alternative Arduino IDE's".   Only in that one I was comparing PlatformIO to Arduino Create.

Thanks to confusion in the ROS tutorials, I loaded Platform.IO, then I loaded VSCode, and somehow, Platform.IO got imported into VSCode as a kind of plugin (or maybe it was the other way round)

Turns out that you can install all sorts of plug ins
