Unified Debugger -- before I buy


I am trying PlatformIO with VSCode. I like it so far. BUT, I want to try the Unified Debugger. Before I shell out the $100 for a year of the BASIC PLAN, I have a couple questions:

  1. What do people think about it? Does it work? Breakpoints, step over, step into, watch, etc. I use VS2017 so is it that straightforward?
  2. My target is a Adafruit Huzzah32 (ESP32). Does that really debug well?
  3. Just curious, how does it debug an arduino uno that does not have debugging support in the silicon?
  4. Is there a trial for the Unified Debugger?



See Finally, PIO Unified Debugger comes to VSCode!

Yes, we have 30days trial. If you trial is already expired, please ping us at and we will reset it.

Currently, we don’t have official release of PIO Unified Debugger for ESP32, it is still in development. Nevertheless, you can try it.

What is your JTAG debugger?
