Build path on Mac seems wrong: \ vs /

See original GitHub issue

I installed the extension on VS Code 1.15.1 on Mac OS Sierra and i cannot compile the sketches. To reproduce:

  • open folder ‘sketch’ in VS Code
  • open file ‘sketch.pde’
  • create task file: OK
  • run taskprocessing-java

Error in console: incorrect classpath: /blabla/sketch\out (No such file or directory)

Notice that out uses the backslash symbol (\) instead of the normal slash (/). The .java file is then created in a folder literally called sketch\out in mac (and it’s not launched from VS Code, since it cannot find it).

I’d suggest putting this in the readme. I stumbled onto this problem as well.

Perhaps I’m reading the issue wrong, so I don’t know if this is a “real” solution, but I just changed in the tasks.json, "--output=${workspaceRoot}\\out" to "--output=${workspaceRoot}/out" and it seems to build ok now.

If this wasn’t the problem you’re talking about and solves nothing, I apologize for butting in. 😊
