This is all new to me. I have a sample (is it a project?) that includes a platformio.ini file. VS Code opens it with no problem using “open Folder”.
But, I cannot find any menu or command to create a new project or to create a new ini file.
In my sample, where did the ini file come from? Is there a template or did someone just magically know what lines to enter into it?
I’m used to C#, for example, where the flow starts by creating a project. When you do that you get a folder skeleton and a couple of starter files. What is the equivalent of that in platformio? Or is it just that the learning curve is so steep and the “beginner tutorials” make so many assumptions, that there is no hope for newbies?
If it sounds like I’m frustrated, that’s because I am.
I would appreciate some help to get a grasp of the paradigm at work here since it’s clearly one that I don’t understand.
