So, not before long, I purchased some cheap nano clones for myself ( I got them from here).
They are great for their price, however, the sad part is that they are not supported by platformio.
I obviously spent a couple of hours trying to look around and perhaps understand how exactly I can get them to work, but nothing I did gave me the wanted results. So I finally yielded and installed Arduino IDE and followed the instruction to install the package provided by the aliexpress vendor (you can check it out here) .
It works flawlessly and I cannot complain. BUT! I would absolutely love it if I can also get it to work with platformIO. Can someone please, provide me with the necessary steps (or perhaps a link to some kind of information resource that explains) the steps necessary in order to make an environment that is compatible with these boards?
Thank you very much for your time.
