Can't type in IDE

Posted on
  • I got a puck in the Kickstarter, played with a bit and then left it for a while. I've decided to pick it up again but can't seem to type in the IDE.

    I updated to the latest Espruino IDE download, I managed to flash the latest firmware to the puck using nRF connect on my Android Phone, but whenever I manage to connect to the Puck on my Windows 10 laptop with the downloaded IDE I can't type in the left hand screen. Also uploading scripts has no effect.

    I can connect to about 7 different com ports althoguh only some of them work. I didn't find anything in the troubleshooting. Any Ideas?

    Thanks, Brian

  • Hi Brian - if you're connecting to a COM port then that'll be your problem. Puck.js isn't a COM port device, and should appear as a special bluetooth device in the connection menu.

    Are you sure you're using the IDE download that's suggested here:­art

    If you're using the Web App from Chrome (or even running it by accident if you had used it with an Espruino device before) then it won't show any Bluetooth LE devices.
