I’m just getting started, I installed the daisy tool chain. Downloaded the DaisyExamples directory. I was able to build and program the sample apps.
I found some code for Terrarium. I downloaded this but could not get it to build. Or at least the commands are not present in VSCode. When I open the project and open the commands palette “build_and_program” and the other commands are not available.
I tried moving the folder inside the DaisyExamples directory but the didn’t help. What am I missing?
Does the direct containing your terrarium code contain a .vscode directory?
It doesn’t! Do I need that. If so how do I add one of these?
That’s what helper.py is for.
Thanks for the reply. (I posted this question on another thread) When use:
$ ./helper.py create ./MyProjects/ExampleProject --board patch
I get the error
-bash: ./helper.py: Permission denied
I followed one of the Electro Smith videos. I saw another post which said to include
python high makes sense but using:
python ./helper.py create ./MyProjects/ExampleProject --board patch
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./helper.py", line 7, in <module>
I just tried:
python3 ./helper.py create ./MyProjects/ExampleProject --board patch
This seemed to work!
How would you initialize an existing project. For example imagine I have a project and want to use it with the Daisy Toolchain?
I think (maybe, not sure), helper.py can set up an existing one, but simplest might be to use helper.py to create a new project, then copy your files and edit Makefile if needed.
Helper.py has some builtin help available :
python3 helper.py -h
