Platform tasks not appearing with Espressif 8266

I need to upload my data folder to littlefs. I’m new to the vscode IDE so I am probably doing something stupid, but I don’t see any platform tasks in the task list. I’m using Espressif 8266 v2.6.2. My platformio.ini is …

platform = espressif8266
framework = arduino
board = d1_mini
upload_protocol = esptool
upload_port = COM8
upload_speed = 921600
monitor_port = COM8
monitor_speed = 115200
monitor_rts = 0
monitor_dtr = 0
build_flags = -D ATOMIC_FS_UPDATE

Can someone help?

It tricked me when the new projects tasks browser launched… platform tasks doesn’t show globally - only under the individual environments… i.e.


Also, since you mention LittleFS… you might want to actually set that as the file system to be used for the project:wink: i.e. board_build.filesystem = littlefs
