Error in manual with "Creating a Project



  • Greetings,
    I'm banging my head against the wall trying to figure this out. I can't create a project in vscode. I'm following the pycom documentation as below:

    17.1 Creating a project in Pymakr

    1. Firstly you will need to create a new, empty, directory on your computer.
      For this example we will create one called RGB-Blink.
    2. Next you will need to open either Atom or Visual Studio Code depending on
      which you setup previously.
    3. Once the text editor has loaded you will need to click File > Open, and open the directory you created in step 1

    Step 3 can't work because "File Open" expects you to open a file which there are none at this point. The directory step 3 refers to is empty.

    is it me or is this a mistake?

    thanks
    iomari

    Hi,
    Step 3 refers to the 'open' entry in the file menu. You should also be able to open directories with that. Then, you can create an empty file inside the directory and call it main.py

    It is probably less complicated than it sounds, I will edit the instructions to make it more clear!
