1  Development / Suggestions for the Arduino Project / XDG config file storage for Linux on: July 08, 2011, 01:56:12 pm
I would prefer that the IDE config files where stored using  the XDG Base Directory Specification. AKA store in ~/.config/arduino and instead of ~/.arduino

Just one of those things that bothers me. I would be willing to implement this if there is any interest.
2  Development / Suggestions for the Arduino Project / Re: IDE - Multiple library locations support on: July 08, 2011, 01:44:32 pm
I do understand that is an option when using 3rd party libraries. When I am creating and using libraries at the same time, I don't want to have to update every project after something is changed. This could be done by creating symbolic links, but this can only be done using *nix systems.

Use case:
I am creating a WiiRemote library to help teach programming to some at a FIRST club at a local highschool. It is rather rough right now and I plan to clean it up soon. They are already using it for several projects, but I would like it so that they could just pull from my git repo when I add improvements.

To be honest, I use vim and scon when working with the Arduino platform. This just seemed to a nice feature to add to the IDE and I wanted to contribute to this awesome project. Maybe I should do something off the to-do list...

P.S. sorry for the long time between post, life got crazy for awhile smiley
3  Development / Suggestions for the Arduino Project / IDE - Multiple library locations support on: May 29, 2011, 08:55:44 pm
I am planning to add support for the IDE so that multiple library locations can be used when compiling a project. This way, libraries would be easier to track and update across multiple projects.

Reason:
When the Arduino IDE is installed into /usr/share/arduino/ it is difficalt to add 3rd party libraries, if not imposible when you don't have admin.

How:
Besides using the default 'arduino/libraries/' location I would also like to use '~/.arduino/libraries/'.

Any feed-back or requests?
