So I have PlatformIO installed in VS Code through WSL. I can create projects mostly fine, but what I’ve found is that PlatformIO uses
\ for its paths as if it’s in a Windows filesystem. So my path ends up being something like
/path/to/somewhere\project. This creates a folder that looks like
somewhere\project, except for the fact that it ends up being a different weird character that creates an “invalid path” error in VS Code.
Since then, I’ve just renamed that folder, so now I can traverse into that folder in VS Code, but when I go to “Open Project” in PlatformIO home, it shows no files in that folder and says that there is no
platformio.ini even though I see all the files very clearly in bash.
I’ve heard PlatformIO working well in WSL, but it has so far been very frustrating for me. Has anyone had similar issues and know how to fix it? Thanks
