idf.py is missing

Postby attonasi » Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:32 pm

I used the ESP32 for a project through the arduino IDE and I want to get out of that so I have been going through the getting started docs here https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp ... index.html.

When I got to the hello world section I found that idf.py is not in tools. I have idf_size.py and idf_monitor.py but no idf.py. I couldn't find it in the repository either.

Is this something I am supposed to build in a different step? Not sure what I am missing.

Hi attonasi,

The docs at this link are for the cmake preview branch, so you have to have this branch checked out in order to use idf.py (which is a new tool, part of the cmake-based build system).

You can change into an IDF directory and run "git checkout feature/cmake" to get this branch.

Alternatively, documentation for master branch can be found here: https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-idf/en/latest/

(Or you can click the little versions pop-up in the bottom left corner of any documentation page, to switch versions.)

Return to “ESP32 IDF”
