ESP8266 Wifi error: 'String' does not name a type


#1

I am trying to build a project for an ESP8266 board (D1 Mini Lite) and am having a problem with the WiFI library. The sketch I a using to test is below and does nothing really but include the ESP8266WiFi.h file.

I get a series of errors starting with the following. It looks like that Arduino String object is not getting included properly. I have included platformio.ini contents as well. Am I missing something simple here?

Not reproducable for me.

Make sure you update your PlatformIO and all the platforms.

You set me on the correct path. What I ended up doing was to uninstall both Atom and Platformio including deleting all the associated files. Then I did a new clean install of Atom and Platformio. Now the compile is clean and I can start to migrate sketches over from the Arduino IDE. Thank you very much.
