Okay so I would like to start using processing in atom.io but whenever I try to run the code it tells me I need to specify a sketch folder with this “–sketch=/full/path/to/your/sketch/dir” however I am unsure of what this means, and I also am unsure of where to type this… It then goes on to say “Not a valid sketch folder. F:\Coding\processing-3.5.2\processing-3.5.2.pde does not exist.”
If anyone could tell me what this means or has any advice or solutions it would be much-appreciated thanks <3
here is the full thing (BTW I went to the website… was not much help):
Command line edition for Processing 0268 (Java Mode)
–help Show this help text. Congratulations.
–sketch= Specify the sketch folder (required)
–output= Specify the output folder (optional and
cannot be the same as the sketch folder.)
–force The sketch will not build if the output
folder already exists, because the contents
will be replaced. This option erases the
folder first. Use with extreme caution!
–build Preprocess and compile a sketch into .class files.
–run Preprocess, compile, and run a sketch.
–present Preprocess, compile, and run a sketch in presentation mode.
–export Export an application.
–no-java Do not embed Java. Use at your own risk!
–platform Specify the platform (export to application only).
Should be one of ‘windows’, ‘macosx’, or ‘linux’.
The --build, --run, --present, or --export must be the final parameter
passed to Processing. Arguments passed following one of those four will
be passed through to the sketch itself, and therefore available to the
sketch via the ‘args’ field. To pass options understood by PApplet.main(),
write a custom main() method so that the preprocessor does not add one.
Not a valid sketch folder. F:\Coding\processing-3.5.2\processing-3.5.2.pde does not exist.
