Obscure Arduino tips #5

Just today I spotted an excellent 'ease of use' thing in the Arduino IDE that Sparkfun had used in one of their examples. Maybe consider adding it to any code you are going to share.

There is a pseudo-URL you can add as a comment in code that will link to the Arduino Library Manager and search for a library.

For example

#include "SparkFun_TMF882X_Library.h" //http://librarymanager/All#SparkFun_Qwiic_TMF882X

This way if somebody has your code they can click on the link and be taken straight to an install option within the Arduino IDE.

This is a really nice little usability feature I had no idea existed.

I'll gloss over the fact Sparkfun originally typo-ed the link in the sketch in question. :-)
