Developers' Guides for discontinued modules


#1

Developers’ Guides for discontinued modules are removed (e. g. Radio FM1 and ColorSense modules). Even modules that are in production are missing guides (e. g. Tunes module - I am pretty sure there was a guide for this module some time ago). Could you please bring them back?


#2

@ iamin - The guides that were removed were either empty or had minimal information that should have been moved elsewhere. Is there something specific you are looking for?


#3

I like when I can just copy/paste some example code to get the module running. Of course, I can investigate the source code, but copy/paste is my preferred method when I start working with a module. I will take a guess here, but I believe I am not alone who likes this practice.
For example, I want to test Radio FM1 and ColorSense modules and I would like to see something I could copy/paste. If there were no examples for these modules - no worries, I will write some code myself, but if there was - I would like to get those examples back.

And I think it is important for new players to be able to find some examples at least for all non-discontinued modules like Tunes.


#4

this has been another task in task tracker that I started - minimal example code for each module to help eliminate hardware issues for newly sourced modules. https://www.ghielectronics.com/tracker/entry/51


#5

I totally agree…when I buy a new module I want to have some sample code that shows how the module works. I should not have to dig through driver code to come up with a minimal example.


#6

Select module in designer. Hit F1. This displays the API for the module. Often there is an example in the documentation.
