I take it you installed the extension, and then restart VSCode as prompted? Did you get any error messages from the terminal window down the bottom? Did it successfully install?
Next thing to try would probably be to go to
Help -> Toggle Developer Tools and click on the
Console entry. Then go to
View -> Command Palette and type in
Developer: Reload Window… and see what comes up in the console log when you do that.
I also not able to connect to the server at 127.0.0.1:8008
Putting the cart before the horse a bit there… For that to work, you’d need to have PIO Home running…
Am I supposed to have a login? If yes where do I register?
Supposed to… no, but you can register for one, which you will need if you want to use the remote features. I’m not sure of the registration link off hand, but you’d have a link to click on if PIO Home was working…
