macos esp32 espressif

Regrets in advance for rudimentary nature of q. Did research but can’t find specific answer yet.

I’ve been using Arduino with stock boards for several years now.

Today I got an esp32 and trying to get going.

Up to date with all updates on MacOS High Sierra.

Up to date with Arduino 1.8.5.

Followed these instructions precisely, with Arduino not running.
https://github.com/espressif/arduino-esp32/blob/master/docs/arduino-ide/mac.md

No errors installing. After restart, Arduino reports:
Could not find boards.txt in /Users/rozzie/Documents/Arduino/hardware/esp32/tools. Is it pre-1.5?

There is clearly a boards.txt in ~/Documents/Arduino/hardware/esp32, but the IDE doesn’t seem to like it or whatever is within that folder hierarchy.

Guidance appreciated.

[[ Problem resolved - path of esp32 needed to be nested within espressif folder - my mistake ]]
