Compile service is down

I’m trying to flash firmware to a Spark core and seeing a server error. I modified the particle-cli to show the error, and I get this:

$ time ./program-local l3d simple.ino
attempting to flash firmware to your device l3d
Flash device failed.
Server error: <html>
<head><title>504 Gateway Time-out</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
<center><h1>504 Gateway Time-out</h1></center>

real	1m1.120s
user	0m0.720s
sys	0m0.086s

All of this points to the build server being down, but says everything is up. Can someone please take a look?


Thanks for posting, I’m in the same boat with the compile service. It’s been down for about an hour I think. Just long enough to research particle dev local compiler and tear my hair out with the lack of instructions.

Good to know I’m not the only one… I’m working on other stuff while I wait. I sent a note to a couple of likely email addresses just now.

The Web IDE seems to be having similar problems. Strangely, I can compile if I use firmware v0.5.3, but I get a server error if I use v0.6.0 or greater.

Anyone know who to tag into the thread to get this running? It looks like the USA is going to be sleeping for the next 8 hrs or so.

Thanks for the tip. I just tried this and it programmed successfully for the first time tonight.

particle flash --target 0.5.3 l3d simple.ino

When I remove the --target 0.5.3 it fails again.

At first I thought it was just me, but thanks for the extra heads up that I’m not crazy. The elites are raising the alarms within Particle now!

The server has failed to process the request on time. Please try again

@NST1992, the engineers are still on it and we will update with more information whenever it’s available.
