Code error with a ex arduino library

Hi - Im new to porting - and have created a private library for a SEEED digital light sensor - they provide arduino libraries only … Ive managed to upload iit successfully via the CLI … and can then see it and include it via the web IDE - Ive written a test bit of very simple code as below - … and the RAW of the compile fail (as no further details given): seems like the key line is fatal error: Digital_Light_TSL2561.h: No such file or directory - I suspect its something quite simple :slight_smile:

Ive included a screenshot of the structure of the library. Can anyone assist me please?

Here is the code …

.ino follows______

// This #include statement was automatically added by the Particle IDE.
#include <KMA_Digital_Light_TSL2561.h>
#include <Wire.h>
void setup() {
void loop() {
//    Serial.print("The Infrared value is: ");
//    Serial.println(TSL2561.readIRLuminosity());  //read Infrared channel value only, not convert to lux.
 //   delay(1000);

Your project structure isn’t quite correct
It should rather look like shown here

To get started with developing/porting a library in Particle workbench you can follow the steps as outlined here (obviously with some adaptations for your own library)

Many thanks Scruff - I will look into this. If you know of a good resource that steps through this process for newbies - that would save a lot of hassle I think … Ive struggled each time Ive attempted this - but Im sure its pretty straightforward :slight_smile:

I’m not aware of something like this officially but I think the second link I posted should cover that nicely :wink:
