I need to test an updated sketch on a duplicate nodemcu but the production version is running


#1

i have a production nodemcu/blynk solution running, and have encountered a problem with the handling of one sensors data. I have developed a ‘fix’, but I want to test it locally before installing onsite…

but I have only one project… do I have to create another one for this test instance?
do I comment out the blynk calls in the sketch as art of the test process? (if !debug…do production code…)

thanks for any guidance


#2

you have to clone your project and get the new auth


#3

thanks… press clone says ‘share’… but am already shared, and shared is using same auth


#4

instead of pressing share, shot the screen and add a new project with the QRcode

#5

thanks… but you said ‘clone’…

now I have to add points for the second project to recreate the UI…


#6

yes clone

first : clone project without share , just take a screenshot of the QRcode


#7

sorry, i do not understand…

clone says share…, ok, screen shot…
and then?


#8

2nd scan QRcode

thx… got to there… now it says not enough points… but doesn’t say how many it needs…


#10

about what ?


#11

when I use the QR code for the new project, says not enough energy… I added 1000 (now 1800) still not enough


#12

ok !!!
you don’t have local server !
you have to bye energy :wink:


#13

yes… how much . don’t remember


#14

Work it out. You can see the cost of each widget in the widget box, go through your project and make a list ofthe widgets you’ve used different add up the cost.

#15

thanks… would have been nice if the message had said how much additional was needed, as the calculation had just been done…


#16

Agreed, but it doesn’t at the moment so doing your own calculation is the only way.

#17

ok, got the clone running…
