Library Example and Author not Updating

Hello, I’m a new platformIO user.

I recently uploaded a library (hosted on github) successfully but I’m having issues getting the example to show up in the library manager.
Also the author is pointing to another Daniel Garcia.

Thanks a lot in advance,

You made a version change 6 hours ago, PIO has not yet re-crawled your library update. Your library structure looks correct now according to the docs. So I’d say, patience until tomorrow.

Thank you, I was confused because the header showed the latest changes, but I guess the header is just a pointer to github.

It looks like the example has updated now. You’ll also want to delete those .DS_Store files now that you’ve gotten them ignored by git as they’re still lingering in the repo. :wink:

Examples are there now but the author page is still wrong… from a previous crawl? You can try to follow the advice from the docs (https://docs.platformio.org/en/latest/librarymanager/config.html#authors) and just delete the entire authors section so that it crawls it from the Github page. You must also increase the version number then.

That’s the way I had it originally, with no authors and it got the wrong one :slight_smile: , I guess there are too many Daniel Garcia s

Then we might have the need for a little correction.

@ivankravets Why is there still a link to the wrong author (https://github.com/focalintent) on the library page given the library.json file now lists the author correctly by a direct link to the github url? Is there some manual correction needed here maybe?

This is an issue of current registry. We have just fixed it. Sorry.
