I’m fairly new to platformio and I’m struggling to find a way to easily build examples that come with Arduino libraries. For example, if I use lib_deps = Romi32U4 in a project, I get the Pololu Romi32U4 library, which comes with several examples, e.g.:
I would like to be able to easily edit and run that example.
From the platform ci reference page (https://docs.platformio.org/en/latest/core/userguide/cmd_ci.html), I have gotten to the point where I can use quite a bit of copy/paste to the cli and execute,
pio ci --lib /Users/greg/Documents/projects/myromiproject/.pio/libdeps/romi/Romi32U4 -c platformio.ini -O "targets=upload" /Users/greg/Documents/projects/myromiproject/.pio/libdeps/romi/Romi32U4/examples/Encoders/Encoders.cpp
That appears to build the code, but it doesn’t upload it to my device.
So, a couple of questions:
Can someone walk me through how to do this? You cannot oversimplify this for me – the more detail the better.
Is there a way to specify options/targets in an .ini file or similar to shorten the long command line entry? Surely, there is a more efficient way to do this.
By the way, here is my platformio.ini file:
[env:romi] platform = atmelavr board = a-star32u4 framework = arduino lib_deps = Romi32U4
