Autocompletion and linting not available for libraries in src/lib

See original GitHub issue

Hi there,


I am having some problems with libraries not getting used for auto completion/ Default sys.path is the root folder and /lib

>>> import sys
>>> sys.path
['', '/lib']

The resulting .vscode\settings.json and .pylintrc do not have this folder included. Currently this results in not getting auto completion and proper linting for user defined libraries.

Expected behaviour: Since the /lib folder on the device is available for imports, it should have working auto completion and linting working properly.

Possible fix: Because user libraries go into the lib folder I propose adding the “src/lib” folder to the .vscode\settings.json and .pylintrc file.

What are your thoughts? Let me know!

No problem, I appreciate you taking the time to implement this feature.

I installed a new project and tried to install custom packages. Works like a charm! Things I checked:

  • .vscode/settings.json looks correct, intellisense is working
  • requirements.txt looks correct, but when running micropy install afterwards it gives some errors
  • .pylintrc looks correct, pylint is working

I will try to look into the problem with the requirements.txt tonight or tomorrow hopefully.
