Thonny is so crude compared to PyCharm
Spent 8 days of so trying to get it working, with mixed results
I have given up, but really won’t it to work….
I know PyCharm is a better IDE, but it’s not easy to get it working with MicroPython.
There isn’t an ideal IDE at the moment for MicroPython.
But, if you get a more advanced IDE, I recommend using VS Code + pymark plugin. I tested it, it works fine, and you can find all the instructions on the following link:
If you want to get more feedback about his issue, I recommend creating a post in our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RandomNerdTutorials
Finally a solution, still prefer PyCharm, over Visual Studio Code, but at lest it works…..
If I had read https://randomnerdtutorials.com/micropython-esp32-esp8266-vs-code-pymakr/ more fully I would have had it running in a hour or two. Contrast this with a couple weeks with PyCharm, with no success.
