Compile fails while using local cloud

The command "spark compile " works when using the spark cloud, but fails when I use my local cloud, with no descriptive reason as to why. What gives?

I see the following message in my server logs: - - [Mon, 27 Apr 2015 17:31:15 GMT] "POST /v1/binaries?access_token=[redacted] HTTP/1.1" 404 9 "-" "-"

My console:

➜  ~ spark --version
➜  ~ spark config identify
Current profile: santaclara
Using API:
Access token: [redacted]
➜  ~ spark list
Checking with the cloud...

Directly accessing[redacted], simply gives Not Found

@needmoreram, the local cloud does not support compiling like the Spark Cloud does.

@peekay123 That explains it! I’m just noticing in the readme, that this is currently in the roadmap - can’t wait :slight_smile: Thanks for your help!

So how do you go about loading projects onto cores that are controlled locally?

If you write your code in the Web IDE, you can download the binary, and flash that locally (over USB, or wireless). You can also use the CLI to compile your projects on the Particle Cloud, and then flash them locally again like mentioned above. You could also compile locally, with your own toolchain.
