Esp32_exception_decoder in serial terminal

Am I missing something I thought the esp32_exception_decoder support was added 4.3 . I have 4.3.4 but get an error when running ? When I try to run the serial terminal from VSCode I get :slight_smile:
— Available filters and text transformations: colorize, debug, default, direct, hexlify, log2file, nocontrol, printable, send_on_enter, time
— More details at http://bit.ly/pio-monitor-filters
Error: ‘esp32_exception_decoder’
The terminal process terminated with exit code: 1

What am I doing wrong ?

my ini file is :

[env:espdev]
platform = espressif32
board = esp32dev
framework = arduino
monitor_speed = 115200
upload_speed = 2000000
debug_init_break = tbreak setup
debug_tool = esp-prog
upload_protocol = esp-prog
board_build.f_cpu = 240000000L
monitor_filters = esp32_exception_decoder
build_flags =
    -DBOARD_HAS_PSRAM
    -mfix-esp32-psram-cache-issue

This depends on the used ESP32 Platform version, which must be at least 1.12.0. Have you made sure to do a pio platform update in the CLI or GUI?

Thank you this was the issue, I updated the platform and its now working. Thank you very much

I have latest one platform and also I don’t have esp32_exception_decoder… Any idea ?

What’s the full platformio.ini and error message?

$ pio device monitor -p /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART -b 921600 -f time -f colorize -f log2file -f esp32_exception_decoder

I have clean PlatformIO installation, installed with “pip install platformio”.

This is the same on OSX (El Capitan) and Rasbian 11 (Debian 11) on Raspberry Pi 0 W.

I don’t think that’s callable like that since it’s added at runtime in the context of a ESP32 project… When you have

monitor_filters = time, colorize, log2file, esp32_exception_decoder

in the platformio.ini and run pio run -t monitor, does it throw any errros?

Hmm… I’ve just working on it…

In fact when I work with platformio.ini it works…

To build:
pio run -e fujinet_v1

To upload and monitor:
pio run -t upload -t monitor -e fujinet_v1

and now it works…

I try to understand how it works… Maybe during compilation is also important to have such flag to debug in future.
