In the last month I was confronted twice with the following problem.:
My browser (Firefox) was asked to connect to https://build.particle.io/build/5c0d3a341fbdb4731a0014e4
I log in with my credentials and the .ino file I asked for is displayed on my screen. No problems yet.
When I scroll trough that file, once I come to the line 98, I cannot go further anymore and on top of my browser a message is displayed in a yellow line “this page is slowering your browser, do you wish to wait or to exit”. Waiting doesn’t bring a solution. And finishing and restarting the browser and so on, doesn’t give a better situation.
I have the same problem on my laptop and on my desktop.
It gives me the impression the cloud-server is refusing to send the rest of the file to my PC.
On the other hand, the functionality of the cloud is still OK : I can still “compile” the program, (and, of course, I get the message Great work !) I also can flash the “unaccessible” program to my Photon with succes. So those functions are still working correctly.
The other .ino files from my library don’t give the same problems : they are still full accessible and I can edit them freely without problems.
My questions :
- how can I solve that problem so I can further edit that “blocked” program ?
- what is the best way to take a backup after each change I made to a program ?
(for the moment, I make a copy on Word, Excel or Notepad.) I think there must be a more userfriendly way.
- Is it possible to ask a Photon to download the actual working program back to my PC.?
(of course I can take it from the cloud, but as said, for unknown reasons the cloud doesn’t give the full text anymore)
On beforehand THANKS for your help.
