Mac Mojave- Installation Platformio-ide failed


i want to install the platformio-ide (Atom Vers:1.34.0 x64) to MacOsx with Mojave Vers.10.14.3,
but the installation script failed with the following information.
How can i fix that??

Thanks for your help :blush:

Could you try to install PlatformIO IDE for VSCode?


No, first ATOM and then try to install PlatformIO


Ivan was asking if you could try following the linked instructions for installing VSCode and adding the PlatformIO extension to that…


now i instal VS-Code Version 1.31.1 (1.31.1) and click on Extensions PlatformIO —> Installing --but without any effect . There’s no flaws or anything. Installation after this instructions


So there was no message at the bottom about PlatformIO installing the rest of it’s components? How about when you restarted VSCode?

Someone who uses Mac may have to continue with this, as I don’t know what can go wrong there or what you can check.


i open this ticket on github: vs-code bug issue
i have no chance to install any extensions in vs-code :frowning:


check the permission for this folder…you need read write rights.
Problem is solved :slight_smile:
