Multiple IDE Location
Jan 7th, 2019 at 9:51am
 
Hi,
last version of Arduino IDE, permit to use it in portable mode. This is very useful to configure lots of different IDE with differet versions of libraries and ESP IDE without conflict between them.
It would be great to have the functionality to add multiple location ide, potentialy one for each portable installation of Arduino (I use 1.8.8 at the moment) in order to switch quickly between enviroment and test my code with different version of libraries and ESP Framework without reconfigure.

Let me know if it is feasible for next release.

Many Thanks

Marco

You don't need multiple ide for that. You can put your libraries under the hardware libraries folder so you have different libraries for each hardware/board type

Also in visual micro you can add libraries as shared projects from ANY location.

What do you mean by the esp ide? Please give url.

Hi,
When I use ESP I install ESP Framework in Arduino via Board Manager.
At the moment I have 6 Arduino 1.8.8 in portable mode, eachone isolated by the other with their own ESP Board installed via Board Manager (ESP 2.3.0-ESP 2.4.0-ESP 2.5), eachone with their library folder, and thei sketch folder.
I think this way is better for keeping enviroment completly isolated between them.
I thing that it is more user friendly that use _microapi forder.

The _microAPI folder is old, instead we use shared projects these days for libraries.

I agree that if you have a different core that currently requires a different ide. You can add IDE's but I have to dig out the config notes. In the meantime you can use the 1.6-1.8 for one and the Arduino 1.9 for the other. They both work the same way.

I will try to post an example of adding your own IDE's to the list over the next week or so.

No problem digging out with config file.
I will appreciare if you will publish a guide on how to working on config file to add IDE.

Please let me know in this thread when guide will be ready

Hi,
did a test and works fine.
Only a question on a parameter:

IDE188ESP242.ide.platforms.basedon=arduino16x

for Arduino 1.8.8 wich value should I use?

Arduino 1.6-1.9 are the same so the intellisense is as designed for 1.6

The value arduino16x is correct.

Are you using Visual Micro at your work?

No,
I'm using at home. I have all of my home automation developed by myself on Arduino and ESP, and Visual Micro make code development faster than ArduinoIDE.
For now I do not use Debug feature, but in future I will try alfo this functionality.

Kindly Regards
