Topic: Missing AVR link and other library link fix (Read 330 times) previous topic - next topic

Hello,

For unknow reasons, the link to AVR library from libraries page has disapeared.

Could it be brought back ?

Furthermore, the two LedControl links from Libraries page send to the same library. So one of them could be safely removed.

Regards

Already reported here:

I reported this two years ago but sadly there has been no action:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/issues/5291#issuecomment-242618294
Arduino has indisputably proven they are not capable of maintaining a useful list of 3rd party libraries so that entire section just needs to be removed.

Yes it's me who reported the issue here, but it seems that this Github page is for language reference only.
So I did an attempt here in the forum :)

Haha, I didn't notice that. The reference-en repository should probably only be used for issues with the Arduino Language Reference pages:
http://www.arduino.cc/reference/en

IIRC, there used to be a link directly to the avr-libc documentation (not to the intermediate UsingAVR page) from the old Language Reference index. Was there a link to the UsingAVR page from the Libraries page at some time?

For documentation issues/suggestions that are not related to the Arduino Language Reference pages, it's best to report them to the arduino/Arduino repository:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino
In addition to being for issues with the arduino IDE, that issue tracker acts as the catch-all for any other issues that don't have a dedicated repository.

The Arduino employees don't really read the Arduino forum. This is a reasonable place to discuss things before making an official report. I try to transfer things over to GitHub when they seem appropriate to me.
