ESP8266 include file problem
Sep 29th, 2015 at 8:09pm
 
I am trying Visual Micro for the first time and getting a build failure for an ESP8266 configuration because of a missing include (FS.h).  I'm not sure if my setup is incorrect (it works with the normal IDE) or if Visual Micro should be handling this situation.

In the IDE I have these board manager urls:
http://arduino.esp8266.com/staging/package_esp8266com_index.json,http://arduino....

It looks like this results in two directories under ...\Arduino15\packages\esp8266\hardware\esp8266, 1.6.5-947-g39819f0 and 1.6.5-1106-g8253b82. The IDE must be searching both directories since FS.h is only in 1.6.5-1106-g8253b82 (staging), but Visual Micro seems to be only using the first.  I moved the stable directory and restarted, and build and upload worked fine.

Is it expected to have only one directory per hardware type?

Hi,

We only support the stable at the moment.

OK,  I guess if I have tool problems I can change just the libraries directory to use updated code.

It's a fast changing part of the arduino build process at the moment. There have been huge changes in the arduino nightly/beta builds. We are aligned with some but the ones from the past couple of weeks are yet to be implemented.

This work will cater for additional paths for libraries and hardware so things should improve as the next stuff matures. However there can be a big hit on support when using the latest cores from highly active developers such as esp8266
