platform

Type: String | Multiple: No

Development Platforms name.

PlatformIO allows one to use specific version of platform using Semantic Versioning (X.Y.Z=MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH) or VCS (Git, Mercurial and Subversion).

Version specifications can take any of the following forms:

  • 1.2.3: an exact version number. Use only this exact version
  • ^1.2.3: any compatible version (exact version for 1.x.x versions)
  • ~1.2.3: any version with the same major and minor versions, and an equal or greater patch version
  • >1.2.3: any version greater than 1.2.3. >=, <, and <= are also possible
  • >0.1.0,!=0.2.0,<0.3.0: any version greater than 0.1.0, not equal to 0.2.0 and less than 0.3.0

Other forms are the same as for the platformio platform install command.

Examples:

[env:the_latest_version]
platform = atmelavr

[env:exact_version]
platform = [email protected]

[env:specific_major_version]
platform = [email protected]^1.2.3

[env:specific_major_and_minor_version]
platform = [email protected]~1.2.3

[env:override_framework]
platform = espressif8266
platform_packages =
  ; use upstream Git version
  framework-arduinoespressif8266 @ https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino.git

[env:external_package]
platform = ststm32
platform_packages =
  ; latest openOCD from PlatformIO Package Registry
