Cannot type in Web-IDE console

Posted on
  • Hi. I am not able to type in the console (the left side) of the web ide. I am using Chrome Canary 66 on Windows 10 on my laptop, I did successfully connected to my puck, I can upload code to it from the right side, and it works, I can turn on the LED. Probably I am doing something wrong, but cannot figure out what.

    By the way I can type in the console if I connect to puck through my android smartphone, so it's somethign related to chrome or windows maybe. Any idea what the problem may be? Thanks.

  • Ahh - you're using Web Bluetooth on Chrome? Sadly Chrome's support is still really new, and notifications don't work yet (which are what is needed to get characters back from Espruino).

    Right now your options are what's mentioned here:­art#windows

    A native app, or a 'polyfill' for Web Bluetooth. Hopefully in a month or so Google will have sorted that and Chrome Canary will work as-is though.

  • I see, thanks Gordon. I used the native app and it's working fine :)
