IDE Setup Issues for BBB

by bRitch022 on Wed Jun 12, 2019 12:43 pm

Hey all,

I'm new to the BBB, and I've been trying to get a test project set up using PyCharm so that I can test a few functions, such as GPIO, I2C, and SPI before I connect to the BBB. So far I am not having much luck installing the Adafruit_BBIO library. I am getting some weird errors with '/Werror' when trying to execute cl.exe (see attachment)

My question: What is the best IDE to use to program the BBB with python? Is it possible from a windows system? I'm on Windows 7

I don't think it would be possible to run the Adafruit_BBIO under windows. It is specifically meant to run on the BeagleBone.

I would recommend trying the browser-based Cloud9 IDE that is built-in to the BeagleBone:

This makes sense -- What is an alternative for debugging on a windows PC?

The Cloud9 IDE both Run and Debug options in it.

Also, there is a terminal ("shell") built-in to the CloudIDE so you can run command line programs through the BeagleBone on it.
