It's good that you have explained your experience as this may help others to decide also. I think it is essential to make the decision early-on after the Arduino IDE has become tiresome as we all invest our time/effort into learning an IDE and it is painful having to change. I think I would have used platformIO immediately if it had been available when I started with esp8266. Once I move to esp32 work on platformIO I will most likely move all my esp8266 stuff over to it also.
Yes, unless you are planning to hack the esp core or use development versions not published in PlatformIO's database then it is definitely a more user friendly environment than Eclipse. I'm looking forward to doing some esp32 development with platformIO and the debugger as I have bought a JTAG adapter especially to work with it. See http://docs.platformio.org/en/latest/tu ... sting.html
I thank everyone who helped!
And I like and share to help others who need it as much as we need.
I'm surprised and very satisfied with the PlatformIO
Wow!! Awesome debug!
I had heard, but I had not read this page.
I was tempted to buy !!!
But it does not exist yet for esp8266 = (
I'm looking for other forms of debugging for esp8266, because I have 2 annoying problems finding the solution!
One is the external interrupt that hangs esp and it does not return anymore.
The other is a WDT reset that happens "randomly" when I have modbus communication enabled.
But esp8266 has few tools.
If you know anything, just let me know.
