Continuing the discussion from Global variables:
@mdma: Just a couple of quick notes after using the Particle Dev IDE for a few months:
- “Particle -> Set up device’s WiFi.” Like a couple of other commands, this command “covers” and disables the IDE with a dark mask (sorry, there’s probably a better way to describe it.) However, when you complete the WiFi setup, 100% of the time, the “mask” and disable isn’t removed, forcing me to close and restart Particle Dev to continue working on my project.
- I experience periodical freezing in Particle Dev, where I can’t click or type. Generally, it only locks up for 15-20 seconds at a time–but there have also been times I’ve gone for dinner, and it’s still locked up when I get back. The unfortunate part: you can’t save your project when it locks up. I am aware that Particle Dev maintains a pretty active communication to some remote servers (“ord08s12-in-f9.1e100.net”), which could perhaps be some of the issue.
