Programming Environment for Arduino Libraries


I’m setting up Arduino Mega 2560. I need to edit a library .cpp file but I can’t seem to get the environment correct. Programming the arduino itself is straight-forward. I know what I need/want to do to my file. The hard part for me is setup. I’ve looked in several places but found many rabbit trails that were not helpful. Is there a straight forward way to setup any environment (could be Eclipse, CodeLite, etc) to allow me to create and edit Arduino Libraries. Many Thanks!


Hello Jason.

Which specific library are you trying to modify? Once you have located the folder the files are in, you should be able to edit them using any standard text editor.


I think you are asking how Arunio libraries are created. It is easy and is explained here
