So in the quest to remove the home server / homepage I renamed the home.py command script. There is no setting to stop it from running at startup and it makes a ton of internet requests when I open atom. PlatformIO immediately deleted itself and broke. Then it tried to re-install itself but since a python/atom/nodejs instance is stuck open with me being unable to terminate it, the install fails.
So now I’m stuck rebooting, maybe I can edit the files… or maybe there is a better way to disable the home screen and unwanted internet activity?
Can’t you kill all python/nodejs/atom processes from Linux shell or Windows Task Manager, delete platformio home folder then reinstall?
I had to reboot and then reinstall. Trying to kill the process gives “access denied”. I still want to end the home screen/server. At least the pio plus exe doesn’t run. I just want to compile things not run a web server or do cloud anything.
Don’t you have “Show at startup” checkbox on the PIO Home tab? It’s located slightly above & to the right of Quick Access buttons.
No, I never allowed the web server to start. I get a blank spinning circle. Also enjoyed finding the hidden telemetry setting in the console options.
Try to enable the web server and turn that checkbox off then.
I set it in ideoptions.py but it didn’t make any difference. It still tries to load the server and the home page on startup.
Try my advice, it works for me.
That package is missing. Good I guess. Wish there was a way to stop the attempts starting pioplus and opening the non functional page however. Also wonder if there is telemetry in the non teminal IDE; there is no setting to disable it. The telemetry package is definitely still there. Haven’t tried deleting it, I bet PIO will self destruct again.
