Default log level for esp32 arduino changed?


#1

It seems that with some latest update the default log level has been fixed to Error, where i could vary it depending on my needs before. I am using the Arduino env.
What worked before is to either set

#define LOG_LOCAL_LEVEL ESP_LOG_DEBUG

before esp_log.h is loaded, or to specify

build_flags = -DLOG_LOCAL_LEVEL=ESP_LOG_DEBUG

as described in Espressif32 (ESP-IDF) - how to enable debug mode via `platformio.ini`?

Neither works on a full re-install of Visual Studio Code with platform.io IDE plugin. Interestingly it still works on the other computer with a somewhat older VS Code installation, but updated (0.9) platform.io plugin.

I wonder how i could go on here… I wonder whether i need to compile my own version of the platform.io esp32 lib… how would i do this?


#2

See updated docs http://esp-idf.readthedocs.io/en/v2.1.1/api-reference/system/log.html

Maybe, you need to post your question here https://github.com/espressif/arduino-esp32/issues

I discovered the same problem. In my application i see only logs of level error, no logs of evel info or warning. Tried several log settings, no success. Help needed… :worried:


#4

Meanwhile i found the root cause, but the workarounds described here and here both do not work with PlatformIO platform Espressif32 with framework arduino :frowning:


#5

Finally i found the crucial hint which solves this problem! :grinning:

Set log level for a specific project
Edit platformio.ini (located in the project folder) Add (or extend) the build_flags option: **build_flags = -DCORE_DEBUG_LEVEL=ARDUHAL_LOG_LEVEL_DEBUG**
