Pymakr Visual Studio Code released

  • One day after releasing Pybytes Beta, we have another release ready: Pymakr for Visual Studio Code! It's now downloadable from the VSC marketplace. Installation is easy: in VSC, go to extensions, search for Pymakr and click 'install'.

    VSC Marketplace link: Pymakr
    Github link: pycom/pymakr-vsc

    Features and differences
    Features are pretty much the same as the Atom plugin. It has the same REPL terminal, sync and run works exactly the same and settings are also split between 'global' and 'project'. There are a few key differences in usage though:

    • Features are accessible through buttons on the left bottom instead of above the terminal
    • All features are also accessible using the cmd+shift+p command panel
    • The intergrated terminal of VSC is used. You can switch between your other shells or the debug/output tabs and Pymakr.
    • You can close the terminal without losing connection or the sync and run buttons. (But keep in mind to manually disconnect using the 'pycom console' button on the left bottom)

    For a more advanced description of the features, check the github or VSC marketplace links above. We'll be adding and extended manual with screenshots and examples to the docs soon!

    Let us know what you think of the plugin and feel free to post any feedback or feature requests in this topic. For bug reports you can file issues on github.

  • Very nice! Thank you.

    I have two LoPy's connected to VSC via wifi, each syncing from their own editor window. This makes debugging my client/host app over LoRa so much easier.
