I am very new with Platfomio and I want to upload to a NODEMCU a cloned project from Github after making some changes.
If I download the ZIP file and open the project, I get a lot of errors when building, so I cloned the project using the “Clone Git Project” option and it builds and upload with no issues, but if I make any change, save the file, build and then upload to NODEMCU the changes don´t apply and the uploaded firmware is always the original.
Can anyone give me a hint by telling me what I am doing wrong? Or what I should do and I am not doing?
I click on “Clone Git Ptoject” then paste the URL. (GitHub - sidoh/esp8266_milight_hub: Replacement for a Milight/LimitlessLED hub hosted on an ESP8266)
Then I click on the alien head on the left and then on Build, and everything seems to run ok
Then I click un upload and the bin file is uploaded to the NODEMCU.
I run it and I use it with no issues.
Then I look for a file esp8266_milight_hub\web\src\index.html and modify the title of this html file and save it.
Then I click on build again and then upload, but the uploaded .bin is the same as before without the change. (the title of the html is the original)
Well how this project does it is a little bit more compilacted, a pre extra script triggers the invocation of npm to build stuff which then results in a changed dist/index.html.gz.h GZIPed file included by the server.
Can you do a pio run -t clean and a pio run -v from the shell and upload the logs of that https://pastebin.com/. Which operating system are you using?
Well, that’s annoying… the main code uses SPIFFS, so that must be for other stuff. That particular one is a bit too convoluted in my opinion… maybe the author was trying to avoid the two step upload process?
