(Photon ) Neopixel library not compiling locally with MAKE, PIN_MAP issue

I know this post is very similar to my problem;

When trying to compile an app with the neopixel library for photon locally i get an error, on the cloud I do not
Im getting error:

applications/Box5/Neopix.cpp:58:52: note: in expansion of macro 'pinLO'
 #define pinSet(_pin, _hilo) (_hilo ? pinHI(_pin) : pinLO(_pin))

… it goes on referring to the same issue

in Neopixel CPP:

#include "Neopix.h"
  #include "application.h"

  STM32_Pin_Info* PIN_MAP2 = HAL_Pin_Map(); // Pointer required for highest access speed
  #define pinLO(_pin) (PIN_MAP2[_pin].gpio_peripheral->BSRRH = PIN_MAP2[_pin].gpio_pin)
  #define pinHI(_pin) (PIN_MAP2[_pin].gpio_peripheral->BSRRL = PIN_MAP2[_pin].gpio_pin)

// fast pin access
#define pinSet(_pin, _hilo) (_hilo ? pinHI(_pin) : pinLO(_pin))

the aforementioned posts make me think i need to replace the gpio.peripheral–>bSRRH line and th e one below it with some sort of fastread/fastwrite function ?

Thanks for the help,
Gary

@godjohnson, are you compiling with PLATFORM = photon? To be honest, those functions should be using the new pinSetFast() and pinResetFast() functions. I’ll ping @BDub to get his thoughts since he’s the library owner.

yes I am compiling with that line included, I wasnt sure why it compiles fine on WebIDE and particle dev but not locally. I saw in another post that you recommended replacing with those functions, but the register names did not have H and L at the end.

@godjohnson, the longer register names are used on the STM32F205 of the Photon vs the shorter names of the Core’s STM32F103. I’ll post a PR to the library but @BDub may not be able to do the merge until the Electron is released. Since you’ve copied the library files locally, the changes are simple:

#if PLATFORM_ID == 0 // Core
  #define pinLO(_pin) (PIN_MAP[_pin].gpio_peripheral->BRR = PIN_MAP[_pin].gpio_pin)
  #define pinHI(_pin) (PIN_MAP[_pin].gpio_peripheral->BSRR = PIN_MAP[_pin].gpio_pin)
#elif (PLATFORM_ID == 6) || (PLATFORM_ID == 8) || (PLATFORM_ID == 10) // Photon (6) or P1 (8) or Electron (10)
  #define pinLO(_pin)   pinResetFast(_pin)
  #define pinHI(_pin)   pinSetFast(_pin)
#else
  #error "*** PLATFORM_ID not supported by this library. PLATFORM should be Core, Photon, or P1 ***"
#endif
// fast pin access
#define pinSet(_pin, _hilo)   digitalWriteFast(_pin, _hilo)

ill give it a try thanks so much!

It’s compiling locally ok for me so I’m wondering what your full make command is, and what directory you are in? For me I’m using commands like this:

You do have to edit the example file to include function prototypes for rainbow and Wheel and #include neopixel.h" instead of #include neopixel/neopixel.h" (I also edited this one to work with an older version of the Internet Button which uses A7 and 11 pixels)

/*
 * This is a minimal example, see extra-examples.cpp for a version
 * with more explantory documentation, example routines, how to
 * hook up your pixels and all of the pixel types that are supported.
 *
 */

#include "application.h"
#include "neopixel.h"

SYSTEM_MODE(AUTOMATIC);

// IMPORTANT: Set pixel COUNT, PIN and TYPE
#define PIXEL_PIN A7
#define PIXEL_COUNT 11
#define PIXEL_TYPE WS2812B

Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(PIXEL_COUNT, PIXEL_PIN, PIXEL_TYPE);

void rainbow(uint8_t wait);
uint32_t Wheel(byte WheelPos);

void setup()
{
  strip.begin();
  strip.show(); // Initialize all pixels to 'off'
}
void loop()
{
  rainbow(20);
}

void rainbow(uint8_t wait) {
  uint16_t i, j;

  for(j=0; j<256; j++) {
    for(i=0; i<strip.numPixels(); i++) {
      strip.setPixelColor(i, Wheel((i+j) & 255));
    }
    strip.show();
    delay(wait);
  }
}

// Input a value 0 to 255 to get a color value.
// The colours are a transition r - g - b - back to r.
uint32_t Wheel(byte WheelPos) {
  if(WheelPos < 85) {
   return strip.Color(WheelPos * 3, 255 - WheelPos * 3, 0);
  } else if(WheelPos < 170) {
   WheelPos -= 85;
   return strip.Color(255 - WheelPos * 3, 0, WheelPos * 3);
  } else {
   WheelPos -= 170;
   return strip.Color(0, WheelPos * 3, 255 - WheelPos * 3);
  }
}

:white_check_mark: Also make sure you have a recent commit pulled from the firmware repo.

Hey sorry I started another semester of school and have been very busy. Im assuming my problem probably lies in incorrect use of Make GNU and firmware version issues, I will try and update you when I have more time to investigate, thanks for the response.

Thanks,
Gary
