My board is not detected in the network

Symptom(s)โ€‹

After flashing a board with PlatformIO and launching a detection, the board is not detected in the Luos network.

Possible reason(s)โ€‹

  • The upload function did not work properly in PlatformIO.

Explanation and resolutionโ€‹

Sometimes, VS Code and PlatformIO do not clean nor regenerate the user folders .vscode and .pio, and it can affect uploading (or flashing) your code to the board, even if there is a success message after the upload. The clean action does not affect these folders either.

If you have this detection problem, try the following actions:

  • Delete the folder .pio from the tree on the left in PLatformIO.
  • In order to have a clean development environment, you can also delete the folder .vscode from the tree.
  • Perform a clean (Bin icon in the bottom left of VS Code).
  • Try hitting Upload again in the bottom left.

The deleted folders and their files will be automatically regenerated at upload. Then try to make a detection again, the board should now be detected.

Exampleโ€‹

Step 1: Delete the foldersโ€‹

luos_img

Step 2: Clean and upload your codeโ€‹

luos_img
luos_img
note

The uplaod time may be longer, because the files are regenerated in the folders .vscode and .pio.
