I have not been able to get the ESP-PROG debugger working with PlatformIO/VSCode for the DOIT Devkit V1 board. I believe the Random Nerds use this board as one of your recommended ones.
Do you have experience with getting the ESP-PROG + PlatformIO combination working in VSCode with DOIT? I am tired of not having standard debugger experience with breakpoints etc,
Please let me know if you have this combination working. My odyssey thus far is documented here: https://community.platformio.org/t/esp-prog-doit-devkit-v1-not-able-to-get-them-working-together/24852
Advice MUCH appreciated!
Unfortunately, I can’t help you.
I have never tried the ESP-PROG ESP-32 Debugger with the ESP32 DOIT board.
I guess the other forum can probably give you a better insight into this issue.
OK Sara, can I ask you if you or Rui use any type of debugger for development? I assumed since you use PlatformIO + VSCode that you’d be using one of the several available debuggers rather than just Serial.print() statements.
I have a ESP-PROG (Costs $12 US dollars); I would like to learn to use ESP-PROG for debugging. Being a goto source on the ESP32; any plans for a tutorial featuring the ESP-PROG board?
