kandi X-RAY | arduino-cli Summary
Arduino CLI is an all-in-one solution that provides Boards/Library Managers, sketch builder, board detection, uploader, and many other tools needed to use any Arduino compatible board and platform from command line or machine interfaces. Note: this software is currently under active development: anything can change at any time, API and UI must be considered unstable until we release version 1.0.0.

I recently started playing with an ESP8266 and wanted to try uploading to it using WSL. I found the Arduino-CLI command and followed some tutorials but couldn't figure out how to upload to the board. The command I tried running is
arduino-cli upload -p /dev/ttyS5 --fqbn esp8266:esp8266:arduino-esp8266 Testing because I know that the board is an ESP8266 and the is connected to COM5 on the Windows Arduino app. The code compiles and attempts to connect to the board, but cannot get past that part.
This is the code I was trying to upload....

Just educated guesses here from my understanding of WSL rather than Arduino.
I'm assuming that you are using WSL2, which doesn't have access to most Windows hardware, including the serial ports.
If that's the case, two options that you might try:
WSL1 does have some better direct hardware access, at the expense of some kernel compatibility (since it attempts to translate syscalls rather than virtualize them). You can try converting the distribution to WSL1 via:
Using arduino-cli, the arduino-ide, or directly the esptool.py (from https://github.com/espressif/esptool) I obtain the following error when uploading a simple (correct) sketch....

The problem was that my last
apt upgrade updated the kernel from the 5.4.0-86-generic to 5.4.0-88-generic (I checked the update in
/var/log/apt/history.log.1.gz). The driver CH341 in 5.4.0-88 is not working properly (the ESP I'm using require CH340G drivers). The solution is to go back to the 5.4.0-86 drivers and in the following I list what I've done.
- disconnect any ESP or board connected to any USB. Then test that the CH341 module (which allows the serial communication with the EPS) is loaded. You can use this code to test the correct unload/load of the module in steps 2, 3.
Can anyone explain me how the arduino-cli daemon is working and what this is doing? I cant find any good documentation on the web...
When I start the daemon it only tells me, it started listening to some port.
Thanks for your help!!...

I'm not sure what to explain beyond the manual.
arduino-cli daemon starts a gRPC server.
It provides a language agnostic interface to other programs so they can use the features of the Arduino CLI.
So like you sit in front of the computer and enter commands into the CLI, a client software would connect to the gRPC server and invoke whatever commands it needs.
I'm making a C# application that compiles Arduino code with arduino-cli. I'm calling it with the Process class using the ProcessStartInfo class and of course via
cmd.exe which is absolutely necessary.
arduino-cli.exe ignores all arguments and outputs the following two lines for five seconds on starting it directly instead of running it via
cmd.exe or from within a PowerShell console:
This is a command line tool.
You need to open cmd.exe and run it from there.
I can select the directory with the correct path, but when I select another directory to be compiled, there is output by
arduino-cli.exe the error message:
Error: unknown command "Studio" for "arduino-cli"
I think that is because the directory I'm selecting is within a folder called
Visual Studio Projects containing spaces in its name and I think it interprets each word as separate argument.
How to code the arguments passed via
arduino-cli.exe so that the two file names (input and hex file) containing spaces in their full qualified file names as complete argument strings?
I read online that if I add
@ before the path it should fix it, but it hasn't done much.
This also happens when I run the
arduino-cli command line directly in a Windows command prompt window instead aside from C#. The issue is likely with the command line syntax.
Here is my C# code:...

The issue was that the path was too long, and it needed a "" around the path. This is what the code looks like now -
I have a Linux machine running CentOS 7 with Python 2.7.5 installed. I am trying to run the Arduino-CLI, which is an executable that requires Python. I wrote a command to compile a sketch. As seen on the right side, it effectively compiles.
When I run the same command in PHP using sudo_exec(), it gives me:...
ANSWERAnswered 2021-Jan-23 at 07:03
I ended up figuring out this problem. In
shell_exec(), PHP does not define the PATH environmental variable. It also won't know the current working directory. So adding these couple lines before
shell_exec() did the trick:
Before people start crying "duplicate", I've already examined
- Spawning process with arguments in node.js
- Use NodeJS spawn to call node script with arguments
- How do I pass command line arguments to a Node.js program?
The first of these is basically the same question in a different use case and as a result the answers do not address my use case.
So... how do you encode a command line like the following with named parameters separated from their values by a space?...

After setting up for repeatable testing
I'm trying to start a server daemon from within my js code, then to access it from the same program. However, when I use the
execFile() method from the child_process module, this blocks the entire program: the
execFile() call never stops, and I am unable to access the server. However, I know the daemon is started since I see a process of the same name start up from my activity monitor (macos equivalent of task manager).
I've also tried
spawn() from the same module, and it gave the same results.
What I'd want to be able to do is to start the daemon as a separate process, forget about it, then stop it when I'm done using it. Is there any way I could do at least the first two?
Here is my code (the
runArduino function is where I start the daemon, and the
main() function is where I access it):
ANSWERAnswered 2020-Aug-27 at 10:38
I believe you should either
await the exec or run
main() in exec's callback. Right now your
main() executes before child process is started.
In the load options provided to proto-loader, I specified the paths to all these .proto dependencies, yet an error pops up stating that proto messages defined in one of these dependencies are not defined.
Here is my code:...

The purpose of the
includeDirs option is to list directories that should be searched for imported files. The file in question imports
commands/board.proto, etc. So
includeDirs should point to the directory that contains those files. In this case, that is
RPC_PATH. So, your
includeDirs list should just be
