How do I use a L293D driver?

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone could give me a Schematic or breadboard schematic for the L293D Driver, possible from using Frizting?

Here is an example what I made in frizting, am I doing the right thing?

We strongly recommend to avoid Fritzing diagrams, as they are usually misleading and often wrong. A hand drawn wiring diagram with properly labeled parts and pin numbers is almost always better.

The ancient, inefficient L293D may not work for your motor, so post a link to the motor data sheet and/or product page.

Re the link...

The Fritzing diagram shown is a disaster that gives us lots of unnecessary work, using the board 5 volt to power the motors and people too often uses the barrel jack, and 9 volt fire alarm battories...

I do not understand how to draw schematics at all... that's why I was using the fritzing breadboard and it automatically generated the schematic... Are there tutorials for how to draw and read them?

Check this guy up! He's been launching numerous of videos about Arduino projects. His videos are really explaning in a way that helps new members.

DroneBot Workshop is his channel.

What would you use other than that driver? To power and control the speed/direction in a motor?

Give us data or a link to the motors You want to use. The demand for voltage, and amperes, depends on the motors and the controller. Oldfashioned drivers might be used but the motors need their voltage.

What you use for a driver depends on the motor voltage and current characteristics. It is most important to know the start/stall current, as the driver must be able to handle that.

If you can't find a data sheet for your motor, carefully measure the winding resistance on Ohms using your multimeter, and divide that value into the motor power supply voltage to get the start/stall current.

Pololu has a great selection of modern, energy efficient motor drivers, and they clearly document how to wire and use them.
