Newbie. I’m trying to write some code using the Arduino ShiftDisplay community library (on mega2560). Maybe I’m missing it, but I don’t see it (or a parent?) in the PlatformIO registry though it is included in the Arduino standard distribution. Thus #include <ShiftDisplay.h> fails in cpp.
Do I need to do something to explicitly include it as it is a community library? Am I just missing it in the registry?
Search for the header file by typing header:"ShiftDisplay.h" – replacing that header file by the one you are interested in.
In the results, for the above search, I see one result; ShiftDisplay by MiguelPynto.
Click the name of the library to open its page.
You will see, on the “Installation” tab, some installation instrutcions. In this case it recommends:
# Accept new functionality in a backwards compatible manner and patches
miguelpynto/ShiftDisplay @ ^3.6.1
# Accept only backwards compatible bug fixes
# (any version with the same major and minor versions, and an equal or greater patch version)
miguelpynto/ShiftDisplay @ ~3.6.1
# The exact version
miguelpynto/ShiftDisplay @ 3.6.1
And as @maxgerhardt says above, you simply have to add the chosen option to your lib_deps. Oh by the way, the 4 spaces (or a single TAB) at the start of each line is mandatory. Ask me how I know!
