    Command line

    Click the PlatformIO logo on the left -> click New Terminal at the bottom left -> execute the following installation command in the terminal window

    • Release version (stable version)
    platformio platform install gd32v
    
    • Development version (synchronized with Github)
    platformio platform install https://github.com/sipeed/platform-gd32v
    

    Note: Due to the domestic network environment, the installation process takes a long time, please be patient.

    Graphical interface

    Open VS CODE -> click on the PIO icon on the left -> click on the Open option at the bottom left -> click on the Platforms page -> click on Advanced Installation to open the add window

    Enter the following URL in the window that opens

    https://github.com/sipeed/platform-gd32v.git
    

    Click Install to add it.

    Wait patiently to install successfully. (The installation failure is mostly for network reasons, please try again after replacing the network environment)
