Loving Blynk - made a great project for a NodeMCU which was relatively easy and works great.
Second project will be on a Pi I have lying around - but I’m struggling.
I have a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.
I have followed a few videos and have installed all the necessary bits to get IDE to compile for the Pi - simple code works fine. I have also installed Blynk onto the Pi and can start it and it goes live - I can see on my App that it is online.
But I cannot seem to get an IDE compiled code to work. A simple code seems to stall at the “Blynk.begin(…” command and Blynk does not start. If I try add the various libraries that I need then it won’t compile!!
I was used to the Arduino IDE environment and liked its look and feel. Is it possible to compile the main.cpp from this IDE or a similar environment? It is more difficult writing in the text editor and easier to make silly errors…
C’mon Is there any worse IDE than Arduino?? Yes,I’m still using it (although I was forced to use platformio with one project lately, and I liked it), BUT for MORE ADVANCED project much, much easier is with external editor: Notepad++, Geany… just to name some of them…
