After a year or so I have unpacked my Mark1 again in an effort to automate my new house and learn some extra programming in the process My goal is to set up the Mark1 and be able to program it quickly without using Github, since I don’t want to keep pushing and pulling stuff in order to test the functionality of it (I intend to use a lot of the hardware features of the Mark1 so testing on my laptop is in many cases not an option). I am not a programming wiz by any means so right from the start I found myself running into some problems.
The Mark1 itself is running fine, I installed the latest image for it and updated the software without any problems. To reach the files on the Mark1 I tried using the SSH-extension of VSCode (which I’m using as my default programming program) to connect to it, but it seems like Jessie is to old to support it (I can SSH into it using the command line though). As an alternative I managed to mount the raspberry pi in my Linux WSL that I run on Windows so I can see and edit the code directly from there. The problem I’m currently facing with this approach is that VScode does not seem to recognize the Mycroft libraries and I haven’t been able to find a lot of documentation about it online, so I’m kind of in the dark about all the functionalities the Mycroft library provides.
To solve my problem I would like to tap into your knowledge and ask you the following questions:
- Do you think this is the right approach for me, or is there another approach that I didn’t think of to achieve the quick programming/debugging/testing I would like to have?
- If so, is there anyone out there who might be able to help me with correctly using the Mycroft libraries in VSCode (or point me to a place where I can find the complete documentation)?
Thanks in advance, looking forward to starting my project!
