For module developers: how to update our own drivers?


#1

For those of us who have created modules, is there a process/guidance we should follow to provide updated drivers?

Looking for porting and standards information, mostly, and also if there’s anything we need to do to package. I have zero Arduino experience at this point.

One option would be to add it to the git repo we will make public later. Maybe others have good ideas add well?


#3

Let’s fix Gadgeteer so that it delivers drivers via Nuget and takes advantage of the auto-updating abilities already built into VS!

Adding drivers to the Gadgeteer Git repo doesn’t help if we can’t update them ourselves.

For now, I think the best you can do is host a Git/CodePlex repo for your “company” and expect everyone to seek them out :frowning:

This is Arduino not gadgeteer.


#5

although dated, here is some thoughts on repositories from Arduino community: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,73531.0.html

Arduino uses github to publish the development environment: https://github.com/arduino/Arduino

a search of github https://github.com/search?q=arduino&nwo=arduino%2FArduino&search_target=global&ref=cmdform yields 13,015 results

…seems like github would be a good place for a repository

It would be nice to get some kind of entry on/in http://playground.arduino.cc/


#6

GitHub gets my vote.

@ ian, Nuget would be wonderful, but this is for Arduino. MS tools don’t factor in.

Doh! I’ve got to stop assuming everything on this forum is Gadgeteer related :smiley: Could we add an Arduino/Gadgeteer logo in the corner or something to help prevent this mistake?

Breadcrumbs on top left shows Arduino :slight_smile:

Yea, yea, yea… :wink:
