Just did it again for probably the 4th time- does not give me an option for trinket- probably an obvious error that I do not see !

The Trinket has to be added. I think I installed the IDE like so:

It looks like you've saved your sketch in the libraries folder:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
/Users/Computer/Documents/Arduino/libraries/tcs34725_with_multiplexer/original tcs34725_single.ino:39:7: error: redefinition of 'class tcs34725'

That creates problems for the compiler. Move your sketch out to the regular sketchbook folder.

Thanks! this definitely helped me i was about to throw my trinket in the trash.... in review some things that people (me) might miss... wish i found this a couple hours ago....
1. after adding the adafruit boards url into arduino/preferences device manager, go to tools/board/ Board manager, search for the adafruit avr boards and hit 'install' . this should make it pop up under tools/board.
2.if you reload the bootlogger vbat=bat pin (opposite #9pin on trinket pro) ? i think, correct me if i'm wrong and don't blame me if you brick your trinket (i found the vbat eventually underneath, but this 'worked' when i ran the boot loader i was trying anything since i was 99% sure it was bricked anyways)
3.don't select a port, select tools/ programmer/usbtinyisp
4.use a proper cord, cheap charge only ones dont work....

Thank you. After pulling my hair out trying to figure out why the red led won't pulse I see your last bullet on the last page of posts - use a proper cord - micro USB cable to be precise. Changed cables and works like a champ.

Here's how I got my Trinket to work. Uploaded several sketches. I did a youtube vid to show and explain. July 5th, 2018. This is: Trinket 5v.USB. That is the only i.d. on the package when I got it yesterday. I have a Microsoft Surface running Windows 10. I have found no one to give a full explanation and it took me all day to figure this out and make the video showing how. I think Adafruit would sell more Trinkets if they worked out of the box with detailed info. for us noobs. Feel free to share this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4hz0YkDpRI

I can confirm this is still an issue with Arduino IDE v 1.8.5.

I am using a 2012 MacBook Pro running MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6

I was unable to upload a simple blink sketch to a 3V trinket.

After installing Arduino IDE v 1.6.5, I was immediately able to upload a sketch.

EDIT: I was also unable to upload a sketch using v 1.6.5 when directly connected to the Mac. Uploading only worked when plugged into an external powered USB hub. My external hub is USB3.

Hi all:
I'm on a 2015 macbook pro with usb 3 ports. Like many of you, I was not having any success programming the Trinket (#1501) using the Arduino IDE. I also have a 2011 macbook pro with USB 2.0 ports. I switched from 1.8.7 to 1.6.5 on the 2011 mac without success - the Trinket never went into the upload mode ( 10-second blinking red led).

I then noticed the comment about using a proper cable

I cycled through all the cables I have and finally found one that turned on the 10-second blinking red led. It was then that I was able to upload the Blink sketch to it with success on the 2011 mac using 1.6.5.

Then I went back to my 2015 mac (USB 3) with 1.8.7 and successfully uploaded the Blink sketch to it - SUCCESS!!!!

Looks like it's all about the cable - if you don't get the 10-second blink - it will not successfully program - check your cable...
