Library structure in Windows environment

The "Eleven" is our Uno-equivalent Arduino-compatible board, but with a number of improvements including prototyping area, a mini-USB connector, LEDs mounted near the edge, and the D13 LED isolated using a FET. [Product page]

Library structure in Windows environment

Post by Jim B » Sun Feb 19, 2012 12:32 pm

Two simple "new user" questions:

1) What is a suitable structure of the folders containing my sketches, libraries et cetera?

2) How do I download and install a complete library such as the Aiko application framework into that structure, ready for use in my sketches ?

Thanks jb

Generally you should copy libraries (in their named folders) into the libraries folder relative to the folder containing Arduino.exe - that's where the compiler will expect to link them.
Somehow it doesn't seem to recognise newly added libraries while running. ie if you copy a library into the libraries folder, close the IDE and open it again.

If you have customised libraries, also keep a copy somewhere else just in case. (e.g. I have modified SPI and w5100 code).
