Just starting on the new “Build Web Servers with ESP32…” course.
I can’t seem to get SPIFFS for the ESP32 to install onto my iMac. Can someone please explain what the final file structure should be and how to get to that point? Below is what I’ve tried, all to no avail.
I downloaded the file into my Downloads directory, giving Downloads/ESP32FS/ in which is directory “tool” holding the esp32fs.jar
I created directory “tool” in Documents/Arduino
I copied the whole tree structure starting at ESP32FS in Downloads into Documents/arduino/tool
Closing the Arduino app & restarting it, then looking in the Tools menu, there was nothing about SPIFFS.
Thinking maybe I still needed to unpack the jar file, I did this by opening it from within my Documents /…/tool directory. This expanded to contain a directory structure of com/esp32/mkspiffs which contained 3 .class files.
Closing the Arduino app & restarting it again, then looking in the Tools menu, there was still nothing about SPIFFS.
Hoping someone can help – thanks in advance.
What version of MacOS are you using?
