[SOLVED] Just started, but already stuck



  • Hi,

    First off, i really like the concept of MySensors, and wondering why i didn't find you guys earlier ;)

    So i wanted to start right away, i ordered the RF modules and a NODEMCU, and also order 4x sensbender micro.

    Programming the NODEMCU worked fine. (i followed the following manual: https://www.mysensors.org/build/esp8266_gateway )

    i soldered the sensbender, and wanted to load the default sketch on it.
    here is where all the problems started.

    it kept complaining that it was missing library's......
    so i removed the mysensors lib (master) and installed the one through the library manager of arduino.

    New try: again same result.
    The lib i was missing first was: si7021.h

    with some googleing i found a i2c library with the one included, but it was called: i2c_si7021.h
    i thought: lets give it a try, and now i get a different error, stating it is missing more:
    sha204_lib_return_codes.h

    Here i stopped, as i think i'm simply missing a load of librarys.

    Then i checkout codebender.cc
    i personally hate online programmers of hardeware as usually libraries and drivers are 1 big hell.

    But when setting up codebender i noticed that i cannot select the sensbender as a board, i tried some others but i didn't get it to work.
    Am i doing something wrong? how can i get my sensbender up and running?

    does it have to do with version 2.0?

    @nick-van-alst With earlier versions of MySensors they included all the external libraries needed for the example sketches. With version 2 these are no longer included in the package but are still available Here

    You will find the libraries you need there.

    MySensors Micro is available through the board manager nowadays.

    Follow the instructions here:
    https://github.com/mysensors/ArduinoBoards

    Yeah, for my local arduino IDE i got the board, but on codebender.cc it is not available .
    But as it looked the libraries were available on codebender.cc

    So that was my issue, i either had a IDE with support for MySensors micro but no libs, or a IDE without support for the micro but with libraries......

    i will test tonight with the git!

    Codebender has never had the Sensebender/MySensors Micro board among their standard boards.
    It would require us (the MySensors project) to pay codebender to get it in. Which isn't an option right now.

    and i completely understand that ;)

    that is one of the reasons i normally like the "offline" IDE's those services always need to earn money on something. and with arduino you at leased know it is based on donations/boards selling.

    i was just a bit scared that i needed to use codebender.cc inorder to get the libraries working, but as Boots33 stated, they seem to be on git!
    Perhaps a good idea to link to that git as well on the mysensor micro instruction page!



  • Thank you guys, its all working now!
