I’ve recently started using the library functionality of PlatformIO, and find it quite nice and convenient. But I’m struggling with figuring out how to handle dependency chains, and cannot seem to find an answer on google/SO/this forum.
I have a project P, which has a dependency on a library A, which I made. Library A has a dependency on library B (which I made as well). Both library A and library B have their own repository, a
library.json file and a
platform.ini file… Library A has a
lib_deps entry for library B, and project P has a
lib_deps for library A (but not for library B).
When I do
pio lib install from my project P, only the library A gets pulled in.
I realize I can add library B to the
lib_deps of project P, but since P is not directly dependent on B this seems wrong, and it will entail some added bookkeeping and complexity in ensuring that the dependencies on B are kept in sync wrt version… Am I missing something obvious? What would be best practice here?
