Mongoose IDE plugin for VS Code

I'm having trouble getting the code completion to work with VS Code and the MOS IDE plugin.

  • macOS High Sierra
  • mos 20180208-182630/master@ab7f50e1+
  • gcc symlinked to clang 9 (Apple LLVM version 9.0.0 (clang-900.0.39.2)

    • also have gcc-7 installed (7.3.0)
  • Code 1.20.1
  • Mongoose OS IDE 0.3.0. (or 1.0.0, not sure)
  • C/C++ 0.15.0

#include "mgos.h" is squiggled green and cannot be found.

Do I need to manually manage my IncludePath?

    Did you add a mos.yml file in your directory? Plugin will identify your project as a mongoose project according to this file.

    yes. Open directory in vs code looks like


    I can <select port> and <setup WiFi> in the bottom status bar of vs code, so it looks like the plugin is kind of working.

    cannot open source file "stm32f7xx_hal.h" (dependency of "mgos.h")

    Where can I find "stm32f7xx_hal.h" or otherwise fix this issue?

    Hi, I had similar issue, although a different file. I'm using ESP32, maybe you have different platform.

    Here is my includePath:

    See especially the paths that contain 'frode'.

    Same issue here.
    I also try to build local to get the include file and add "${workspaceFolder}/deps/mongoose-os/fw/include" to c_cpp_properties.json, still doesn't resolve the issue.
    I see it just IDE warning, we still be able to build, flash the app.
    So I ignore it for now.

    Yeah and the extension source isn't online anywhere (although can be found in ~/.vscode/extensions ... why have you guys not released the source for the extension if you're not going to be updating it?
