Unable to install Platformio using VSCode or Atom


#1

Either installation hangs with the “Welcome to PlatformIO” page which includes a “Reconnect” spinning circle. A “Core” version spinning circle and a spinning circle above the word “Loading…”. “Home” on the page shows version 0.2.5. I cannot go father.

I’m on an iMac with OS X 10.11.6. Any help would be appreciated.

I’ve been using atom with PlatformIO on this machine for while and it just stopped working a couple of days ago after an update.

EDIT: Works with 10.12.6. DOES NOT WORK WITH 10.11.6

#4

Please open system terminal (not terminal in PIO IDE) and run:

~/.platformio/penv/bin/platformio home

It should open PIO Home in new browser window. Does it work here?


#5

In the terminal:
PlatformIO Plus (https://pioplus.com) v0.10.8

I
/-
–\ PlatformIO Home
/ _-

|[]| [] | http://127.0.0.1:8008
|
|____|______________________

And in the new browser window the same same result as before. Still trying to reconnect.


#6

Could try to open PIO IDE Terminal and type

pio upgrade
pio update

Now, please restart IDE. Does it work now?


#7

Sorry, no it doesn’t. Did a clean out and a complete reinstall with the same result. I’ve moved off the iMac with the problem to a macbook pro which works so it takes me a moment to switch back.
