I am trying to find a way to run pio core without having to set the path variable in the operating system.
I can get a project to compile with no path set if I place it in a folder like \python27\scripts\src , but if the \src folder is not in the \scripts folder I cannot.
I’ve tried PLATFORMIO_HOME_DIR with no success, but being a noob to this, I may be using it wrong. for instance if I run, from the scripts folder:
then return to the src folder and build, I get:
‘platformio’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Thanks for the reply. I do have VS code and Platformio working very well when I install Python 2.7 and specify path in system variables. The problem is, I would like to use this combo in a week long robotics camp I teach, where the computers do not allow me admin rights. I cannot do a normal python install and I cannot set paths in the normal ways without admin rights.So, I am attempting to set it up as a “portable” non admin install. A real challenge when python is involved, especially for someone like me with little Python experience.I am making a bit of progress with windows setx at the moment, I will inform if I can make it work.
Looking forward to the updates on the VS code/ platformio extension. I also find Atom far too bloated and barely runs on some of the old clunker school computers. (which is why I’m opting for VS code)
