Holy crap, this is the best news i have seen in a long time. Thank you guys for putting in all this hard work into it. I look forward to this development.

Though I did run into a few issues.
The install went well. After i selected one of the demo projects "blink" it opened it fine, and it build fine. But there are still red squiggles for all the #includes.
Also, when I click on menuconfig i just get a pop window saying "ESP-IDF: Menuconfig: Loading initial values..." and it never does anything.

Any ideas???

Yep, official support for VS Code is very exciting. Special mention for the setup wizard - fantastic.

Did you follow the setup guide here?: https://github.com/espressif/vscode-esp ... URATION.md
You might want to try a slight tweak: https://github.com/boarchuz/vscode-esp- ... URATION.md

That should resolve squiggles for all esp stuff.

If you're having issues with standard libraries, try adding the compilerPath to your c_cpp_properties.json as I found I needed to. eg.

Code: Select all

"compilerPath": "${config:idf.toolsPath}/tools/xtensa-esp32-elf/1.22.0-80-g6c4433a-5.2.0/xtensa-esp32-elf/bin/xtensa-esp32-elf-gcc",

I'll give those ideas a try thank you!

FWIW when I saw that awesome setup wizard i just figured the notes about doing things before the install was outdated. Guess I got to excited and went to fast ;-)

What took care of the squiggles for me was adding "compileCommands": "${workspaceFolder}/build/compile_commands.json"

Still was unable to get IDF GUI Menuconfig to work. In my own VSC setup i am able to have the GUI popup.

Hi boarchuz and username !

Thanks for the feedback! We are trying to make the extension as easy to use as possible.

Concerning the GUI Menuconfig Tool, Can you provide us with the content of ESP-IDF GUI Menuconfig Visual Studio Code Output channel and the log (esp_idf_vsc_ext.log) in the extension directory ?

I'll try to make a video & the log sometime this week hopefully. But I am in the middle of a hot project right now so no promises.
But thanks again for the awesome work thus far.
