Platformio was recommended to me by a friend at my local makerspace and I’m sorry if I’m dropping this in the wrong spot. I’ve been trying to get my head around programming an ESP8266 (specifically a nodeMCU 1.0) without resorting to Arduino IDE/language. I had some initial success getting the command line tooling recommended on the Espressif website running through WSL but couldn’t get their hello_world example sketch running possible due to WSL not playing nice with nonstandard baud rate the bootloader uses (best guess).
So I switched to VSCode/Platformio and have gotten the platformio blink example for ESP8266 rtos framework running that way. But my attempts to recreate the Espressif hello_world lead me to discover that the esp_system.h that platformio has does not match the esp_system.h provided by espressif.
I’ve not run a side by side comparison but the macros for querying chip information appear to be missing from the header provided by platformio.
My platformio.ini is pretty bare bones atm
platform = espressif8266 board = nodemcuv2 framework = esp8266-rtos-sdk
Can I point to the Espressif git repo in the platformio.ini instead of wherever the framework is pulling stuff from? Is there a reason for the mismatch? Have I just configured something wrong?
