I need to control a stepper motor by using the Particle Photon and the Adafruit Motorshield V2, and am having a lot of trouble getting it to work. I am fully aware of this post here, Adafruit Motor Shield V2 Library [PORTED] . However, this post is written with the Spark Core in mind, not the Photon. Having said this, I have tried everything to get it to work. I have configured the spark and shield exactly as shown in this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=629VVNp0Z5Y . The code I am using is the Adafruit-Motorshield-Example.cpp file from the Adafruit-Motorshield-V2 library in the web IDE, as was recommended in the other post.
Having done all this, I cannot get the motor to spin at all. I have the same motor as shown in the video, and I am sure that it works, because I was using it with Arduino just last week.
If someone could please help me figure out how to get this motor running I would be extremely grateful. I am very new to all this kind of stuff so please forgive me if I ask any dumb questions in response. Please help, I really need this to work! Thanks!
