VS Code Development

Post by JackN » Fri Jul 10, 2020 7:10 pm


I’m considering one of these boards, and curious if anybody is using VS Code successfully. I saw on extension for VS Code for MicroPython that flashing the firmware only works for ESP boards. I’d appreciate any experience and/or confirmations you might have.

Thanks :)

I was wondering about this too, and did a quick look on Windows. There VS Code apparently wants to use the MINGW software package to
execute a linux toolchain. So you would have to install MINGW and import an arm toolchain from a linux system.

Presumably on Linux it would just execute the toolchain itself.

If you can find the elf file generated by the toolchain, you should be able to use the micropython tool for extracting code to the dfu format
and download it.
