Library Manager

PlatformIO Library Manager is a tool for managing libraries of PlatformIO Registry and VCS repositories (Git, Hg, SVN). It makes it exceedingly simple to find, install and keep libraries up-to-date. PlatformIO Library Manager supports Semantic Versioning and its rules.

There are 2 options how to find library:

You can manage different library storages using platformio lib --global or platformio lib --storage-dir options. If you change current working directory in terminal to project folder, then platformio lib command will manage automatically dependency storage in libdeps_dir.

Project dependencies

PlatformIO Library Manager allows to specify project dependencies (lib_deps) that will be installed automatically per project before environment processing. You do not need to install libraries manually. The only one simple step is to define dependencies in Project Configuration File platformio.ini. You can use library ID, Name or even repository URL. For example,

[env:myenv]
platform = ...
framework = ...
board = ...
lib_deps =
  13
  PubSubClient
  Json@~5.6,!=5.4
  https://github.com/gioblu/PJON.git@v2.0
  https://github.com/me-no-dev/ESPAsyncTCP.git
  https://github.com/adafruit/DHT-sensor-library/archive/master.zip

Please follow to platformio lib install for detailed documentation about possible values.

Warning

If some libraries are not visible in PlatformIO IDE for Atom and Code Completion or Code Linting does not work properly, please perform Menu: PlatformIO > Rebuild C/C++ Project Index (Autocomplete, Linter)
