Firstly, hello Particle community! I just recently received a Photon and have started playing with it. I prefer the offline Dev (there’s just something about an editor that is “Stand-alone” versus one I have to visit in a browser, even if the code still compiles in the cloud), and have been quite happy with it the last few days. I have recently had to switch to the online build.particle.io, however, because my Particle Dev is throwing this error when trying to compile my .ino file:
build couldn’t produce binary Error Command . . .
It throws no errors, and I have checked and double checked the very simple code in Arduino software, so I know that isn’t the issue. Having looked around at some other posts, I am worried this may be a result of my errant deletion of a .ds_store file. I recently bought a Mac, and not being familiar with the files types native to Mac OS X and consequences of deleting them, I chucked a .ds_store file or two and never thought twice about it… Until my Dev crapped out on me. I’m tech saavy, but I’m not highly familiar with the .ds_store file or what it does, so I don’t know if this is truly the cause and whether I can/should build another.
I may be 100% off on my guess work, so if there’s any other causes you could think of, please feel free to bring it to my attention. Thanks in advance!
