Tutorial for new users


Hi, I have just downloaded and realize I need a tutorial from the start of the project and even where to “write” the code for a simple blink project. I have looked on youtube but it’s all for the arduino ide.


Are you asking about Atom, the text editor, or Electron, the application framework?


If you haven’t downloaded the PlatformIO package, you would need that to do any Arduino development. If you’re asking about PlatformIO’s features, the place to do that is on their forum. PlatformIO’s documentation does cover getting started.


Thanks for the replies but I realize what I needed next was http://docs.platformio.org/en/stable/quickstart.html
I needed clang installed and to create a main file to start. I have been able to change the blink successfully. I believe I’m on the right track now
