Pymakr starts but generates errors on each user action - Mac OS X

  • Hello,

    Creating new issue since similar titles ("Pymakr does not start") were 4 months old.

    The first time I used Pymakr, it ran great and sent code to my LoPy perfectly, but now 8 hours later, it is reporting errors whenever I try to open a project, start a new project, etc. An example of the errors is pasted below.

    I am running Mac OS X and am used the Pymakr 1.0.0.b8 installer.

    Is there a fix for this?

    Also, is there an alternative IDE? I understand that Python scripts can be moved to LoPy using FTP, but... really?

  • @fos
    no its not
    it is discontinued only future plugin

  • Same problem with OS X. It worked but crashed after trying to increase font size. Tried deleting application, application files, and user files in home directory. Reinstalled with a new download. Same issue. Won't even start.

    Very buggy.

    I will try the windows version to see if it is any better.


  • I've just got the same issue after brew upgrade if it makes sense...

  • @livius Thanks, I'm coming to the same conclusion. For as much as Pycom charges for their hardware, you'd think they could invest some of that money to produce a usable IDE.

  • @Mike-K
    Do not use Pymakr
    use any ftp client and work with it

    • some com port monitor

  • Also, I did try uninstalling then reinstalling Pymakr, but encountered the same issue.
