PlatformIO & MacOS
On installing PlatformIO in VSCode on a Mac, all appeared to go well until I tried to compile a sketch, then the following warning showed up on the Terminal.
The terminal shell path "platformio" does not exist.
I found other cases when I googled the error, some suggesting installing a previous version of VSCode and others advising to delete core installations etc..
I got VSCode up and running by just renaming the .platformio folder in the HOME directory and restarting VSCode, forcing VSCode to make a new installation of PlatformIO.
Yes, I do like it, especially the code completion function which makes coding sketches much quicker. I suppose only one thing becomes time-consuming and that is having to have separate programs for different boards.
But we will get used to it!
@pugwash You can add multiple boards to a project by adding them to your platformio.ini file for the project. I used to do it for uno and pro mini boards in testing. If I remember, don't set a default in the .ini and it will build all the boards/targets or if you just one built, put a default in. Not sure if there is an automated way to do this.
In looking, there is this thread on doing it. Seems to match mostly with what I have done.
