Hello I'm a new user to IDEcc online .I have downloaded a sketch from the GitHub and I do see it in my downloads folder but when I try to navigate to it from the IDE app I can't see it . Does anyone know why this is?

On any platform I am aware of the file open/tree navigator is provided by the system API so has little to nothing to do with the program you are using. HOWEVER did you download an INO file from github or some other (unknown to the IDE) file type.

I just tried it and ALL file types show up.  Try going the other way, goto the file and rt click to open unless you are certain the app/filetype (INO) is associated for default opening then left click will work.

Remember, the IDE wants you to establish a source path and any source file you open will be stored under that in a folder of the same name as the INO. I always move my downloads in manually and often rename them for my use as sometimes the git names are funky.

I downloaded a folder I2csoilmositermonitor-master and inside that there is a .ccp and a .h but I can't even see that folder

@hawkeye That sounds like a library. If it is, you need to install the library first , then the sample code will appear under the IDE File -> Examples.

You said folder, bet Get Code downloads a zip usually with master at the end. Go into the IDE, with any sketch even blank, goto Sketch -> Include Library -> Add .Zip Library

@photo-bud Yep, got it but the latest nightly build has a bug where no boards or libraries show up.

Unfortunately they keep introducing new bugs 🙂

I found that if I use the menu->file open and then navigate to a sketch and open it, the sketch book shows up after that and subsequent reboot/launches... otherwise, it's still getting better all the time, and I mostly use it in favor of the old one, even though it's still a little buggy, it's still a lot better - Looking forward to the final release!

Cheers

@frogandtoad I had to go back to RC6 but will try the nightly builds every few days. There is a lot to like in the new IDE so it's worth the trouble.

rc7 takes forever to load for me, and often never actually loads until I interact with the window in some way. Otherwise the splash image stays there forever, hiding any window I bring to the foreground. rc6 had this problem and they said they'd fixed it in rc7.

Did you uninstall rc6 before installing rc7?

@yurkshirelad The install just asks to replace or keep both, I just replace since the install only takes a minute. Yes, the start up is still slow but the compile times are getting much faster and for me the key feature of being able to collapse sections of code is invcaluable but still not as good as I am used to.

@yurkshirelad Remember it's open source so any promises are pointless.

@yurkshirelad One thing you can do, is keep a new sketch open but minimized so you don't have to stop and start the app whenever you switch sketches. I start each morning with both IDE's open and leave them open all day unless I am updating one of them.

rc7 has resolved that slow load up time for me, on both my Linux (KDE Neon & Mint) and Windows 7 machines.

Which O/S are you using out of interest?
