MakeCode programming runs slow

by mlvc on Wed Jul 18, 2018 10:42 pm

I’m trying to program my cpx and crickit with the bumper bot code and I’m 3/4 thru the code and it’s just not running well. I try to add another block to the code and it’s staggers. I’m using the makercode APP from Adafruit.
I have a i7 7700k with 4.20ghz
Z270 MB
1080 GTX
16gb ram

I don’t think it’s my specs. Any suggestions?

Seems to run well from the web browser.

Anyone else have the same issue with the app?

@mlvc

Make Code IS a Web Based program, there's a tutorial to run Make Code in an Imulator for offline use but its not for beginners to install.
Also I've heard that Make Code works well on Internet Explorer (that's what I use), and it might have problems in Firefox internet browser's.

Cheers.

I built the Bumper Bot and the MakeCode tool freezes up. I tried running it in Firefox, it stalls when I get more code loaded. It seems to hang up when getting to the bumper bot on shake section. I downloaded the local app and it does the same thing. I've tried checking it in task manager and it does the same with it being the only program running. I've tried building the code in the tool as well as d/l and opening it, same result. Win 10 box with all current updates.
Guess I'll try it in Internet Exploder...

Just to be clear: is this a problem when you are using the Blocks editor and/or the JavaScript editor? We've had some issues with Blockly perf recently.

I was putting together some code last night in Block mode and I noticed a significant hit to performance after I added a healthy number of actions to the Windows version of MakeCode. I saw the last post in this thread and decided to load it up in JavaScript mode and the application runs a lot smoother now. There is definitely something causing performance issues in Block mode for the Windows thick client.

Yes, this is a known problem (for Blockly) that we have been working with the Edge team on.
