I’ve followed the instructions for compiling and flashing from the Arduino ide, where you plug a url into the settings somewhere to tell it where to get all the proper libraries, etc. It works great, though I use my own text editor. In other words, the only thing I ever do in the ide is hit ctrl-u.
I’d like to be able to compile & flash from the git repos. I want to mess around with the code and choose to use bleeding edge versions of plugins, and to keep using git to track changes. I tried using the instructions found here, but got stuck at the ‘make’ step. I’d be willing to use Linux on Windows subsystem, but I suspect that would still require the Linux binaries for the Arduino IDE, and I’m pretty sure the Linux subsystem is command-line-only stuff.
Am I going to have to spin up a Linux VM?
