Getting Intellisense working with VC++ (not code)

Postby Kaisha » Wed Nov 04, 2020 7:03 pm

I have an ESP32 project that's getting on the larger side. I use the ESP-IDF and build from the command prompt atm, but I'm using Visual Studio 2019 for editing (not Visual Code). I don't like Visual Code and would prefer to keep using VC++ but as the project gets larger, its becoming more cumbersome.

I don't need to build, debug, or upload in VC++, I can do all that fine from the command prompt. I just need intellisense working so looking up structure contents, autocomplete, finding relevant files, etc... can be done with a click instead of a 15min browse through the esp-idf directory mess.

Anyone have any idea if this is possible and how to do it?

If there is something we can do to improve Visual Studio Code extension please let us know.

You can take a look to our ESP-IDF Eclipse plugin or explore other IDEs integration users share in this IDEs for ESP-IDF forum.

I've never been able to get the Visual Code extension to work. No matter how many times I've set it up, fresh installs, playing with directories, whatever, it always fails.

I also hate Visual Code, so there's that too...

Visual Micro alluded to something in the works, so I'm hoping they come us with a decent solution.
