I’m new here and happy to share with you all 🙂
I am currently using VSCode + PlatformIO to learn developing on the ESP32.
I am planning to test MicroPython on a spare ESP8266 and wondering whether I can use PyCharm for this purpose?
I understand there’s no PIO / Pycharm integration but do you guys have any experience with PyCharm / MicroPython plugin for ESPxx dev?
I haven’t experimented with PyCharm for micropython devices.
But, it seems to be possible to use it: https://blog.jetbrains.com/pycharm/2018/01/micropython-plugin-for-pycharm/
Let me know if you were successful.
Thanks a lot for your answer and the link!
I will give it a try along with the MicroPython programming ebook and report back.
By the way which IDE do you guys use for MicroPython / ESPxx programming?
Just curious about the ‘popular’ ones 🙂
At the moment I am starting with VSCode along with PlatformIO in C (Arduino) langage but not sure whether this setup can also be used for MicroPython…
For micropython, we use Thonny IDE or uPyCraft. Both have advantages and disadvantages.
There is a micropython extension for VS Code. I’ve tried it a few time ago, but wasn’t successful: https://lemariva.com/blog/2018/12/micropython-visual-studio-code-as-ide
However, you may try it, if you want, and see if you get it working.
very valuable information, thank you again Sara.
I will investigate and get back to this post with my findings 🙂
Sara I am happy to report that I’ve been able to flash my NodeMCU ESP8266 with latest MicroPython and run the super complex “blink a led” code from PyCharm by using the instructions from your link 🙂
Thanks a lot!
