Include a library

Post by der_kaputte »

Hi,
is it possible to use an external LIBRARY in your IDE?
I would like to use the clock to control my robot (with Robot Operating System) by touch screen. For this purpose several lib's are necessary.

Thanks and greetings

Hello Thomas,

At the moment it is not possible to include other libraries because it affects the firmware and its size. But we hope that in the future we can also include external libraries as user option, uploading a ZIP.

In the meanwhile I suggest you to use a MQTT interface between the watch and a ROS (Rosserial?) middleware (like a Python script) to control your robot, maybe a TWATCH-PYTHON-ARDUINO bridge. There is a sample on the Store, search for MQTT.

Good look

Thomas,

We recently released a new version that allows you to load custom Arduino libraries for your watch. We hope it helps you.
