Can I disable account required function from PIO?


#1

Hi,

I started using PIO recently, both on Atom and VSC.
I’m looking for a way to disable function requiring an account, they don’t really need to be there since I don’t want to use those features.

On Atom primarily, the “upload” button (cloud and arrow) being next to the “send” button (just a standard build and send to device offline) is bothering me a little bit, since I won’t use this feature.
I feel like I’m being nagged to create an account.

Could there be a way to have an option where all function requiring online account, any “community” integration (looking at PIO Home page recent news) would be hidden?

I am however grateful for the awesome IDE you guys provide (Open source as well), and cannot really complain. It’s mainly a suggestion.

Thanks,

That’s great to know!
Keep in mind that this is not only about the recent news section, but all the function requiring an account.

Thanks!
