Can't get Adafruit HX8357D screen to work

Thanks for your help.I think I failed because of some problem with the Web IDE on my machine (see below). It is not using the particle CLI version that I have, I can’t figure out why or how it is pointing elsewhere.
I think this needs a different thread now since my screen works and now the issue is something different

That isn’t really your issue but a problem in the Particle build farm. They haven’t updated their own infrastructure, but that’s also not causing your build issues :wink:

I have to ping Particle again about updating their own servers :wink:


I think I found (one of) the issue(s) with the SDFat library. The include should actually by #include "SdFat.h" - I don’t know when this changed tho’.

And you need to add this line too

SdFat SD;

Update:
I have just published v0.9.5 of the lib which doesn’t require you to change anything. The SpiTftBitmap sample does now build as is.

Thanks. Glad to to know at least one of my troubles isn’t mine. I have a feeling that when i got things “right” then i was bitten by the problem with 0.6.1.
I felt like i couldn’t get anything right.
I can’t wait to try this out to see if i can make this all work as intended. I want to keep my stuff as standard as possible.
