i have two issues where the PIO IDE for VS Code is a bit slow. I am working on windows. The project i am working on is on a mapped network drive.
After startup of VS Code and opening the project, i get a notification “Configuring project: Updating metadata for the vscode IDE…”. This stays like this for a long time, i measured over 30 minutes once.
When i start the compilation of a project anyways (e.g. Marlin firmware for 3D printers) the output is like this:
LDF: Library Dependency Finder -> https://bit.ly/configure-pio-ldf LDF Modes: Finder ~ chain, Compatibility ~ soft Found 14 compatible libraries Scanning dependencies...
It can also take up to 30 minutes for dependency scanning to complete. I had an identical setup on another windows PC (same VScode sync settings, same network drive server) but recently replaced this PC, and now i have these problems.
What could i do to improve the speed of PIO? Is there some kind of progress log for the first issue?
