I wonder if there will be a feature that shows progress when creating a project for the first time in PlatformIO GUI? Something which tells you what toolchain/dependency is currently being installed/downloaded and also the progress bar.
I live in a country with mediocre internet speed so I often think that new project creation often crashes in the middle of the process without me knowing, because it always takes so long to make a new project for the first time.
Sorry for the issue. Please file a feature request here https://github.com/platformio/platformio-core/issues
