I recently just picked up a Teensy 4.1 that I am eager to get started on using. I downloaded platform IO and got everything set up. All good. Then I create a simple blink project to test it out… yet I keep getting this error:
“Error: Not a PlatformIO project.
platformio.ini file has not been found in current working directory (C:\Users******\Documents\PlatformIO\platformio.ini). To initialize new project please use
platformio project init command”
So obviously, it is saying the platformio.ini file has not been found, however that file is in my project. Yet when I do the “platformio project init” command in the terminal, it produces this file, but not in my project. Instead it goes into the “PlatformIO” folder.
The hierarchy of folders, to make this clear is I have PlatformIO > Projects > blink, (each of these folders shown in my project tab on the left - using Atom) the problem is that it is looking in “PlatformIO” folder for the platformio.ini file, not in the “blink” folder which is the actual project. Is there any way I can point the folder it looks in for that initialization file elsewhere? Like to the blink folder?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Apologies ahead of time if this is a trivial question. I am a hardware guy, not a coder, used Arduino for the last 4 years, never went too far outside of that IDE so a lot of this is very new to me.
