VS Code cannot resolve OctoPrint classes


I can work really fine with VS Code to develop my plugins. But what I do not get up running is using OctoPrint inside my plugin with Intellisense. It cannot resolve the import. Any ideas if I can change it? Debugging and everything else is fine also jumping from my plugin into OctoPrint code.


Do you have your OctoPrint virtual environment set correctly? At the bottom bar of the screen, there should be a button either showing the currently selected environment, or 'select python environment' (something like that).

The button showing "Select Python Interpreter" every time. I can select one for OctoPrint or the Plugin but it does not change. Also both shows different environments in the list...



Sometimes I have the same issue.
My solution is to create a .vscode/settings.json file in my plugin folder. The settings include the reference to the venv from OctoPrint. After restart of VS Code and reselecting the interpreter, the "Select-Message" in the bottom disappeared

    "python.disableInstallationCheck": true,
    "python.defaultInterpreterPath": "/Users/olli/0_Projekte/3DDruck/OctoPrint/octoprint_latest/venv-373-op172/bin/python"

Maybe that helps

Now it works fine. :slight_smile:
