Hi & welcome Andi :-)

It seems Eddy Vromen was the last to set up the build environment on

Maybe he can help you on details, but setup should generally still be
straight forward following the developer guide.

And no, PlatformIO is not an option.

Chris' latest work on the UpMiiGo integration isn't merged into the
master yet. He already has added a config option towards supporting
direct OBD2 connections.
To contribute to that, fork/attach to his repository:

Sadly, my Mii is still months away…

From the discussion on the GE forum I also think it's better to connect
via OBD2, the Comfort-CAN port seems to be too limited (by security
design). It's a good idea to reuse the existing shark fin antenna
though, maybe simple antenna cable extensions can be used so we can
place the module near the OBD2 port. I don't think using a bluetooth
OBD2 dongle is an option, as that would add a significant continuous
current draw.

If you haven't already, check out the list of UpMiiGo OBD2 codes already
collected on Goingelectric:
