I decided to dust off my MSP430G2553 launchpad again and try and use it for a new proof of concept prototype application which needs either an OLED or small TFT display screen. So naturally one starts with a quick online google search to see what is out there currently. Searching for ILI9340 and MSP430 threw up this post. Happy day's I thought, this will speed things up on the TFT side as very little is out there.
As you know there are 2 IDE's and coding methodologies I can use for the MSP430's. There is the quick and simple Energia and there is the more comprehensive Eclipse-based CCS.
So why is no one in the 43oh community being explicit in their documentation and explain to us users, who stumble across your fantastic work, as to exactly which IDE applies. The community needs to embrace Energia and not just assume that CCS is best for all things great and small, and then create their respective libraries in the correct format for both IDE's, and make mention of this in the readme files. I am left having to assume which IDE applies.
So if you have correctly formatted Energia libraries (typically just requires the right file structure) for ugl16msp and ugl8msp please could you let me know.
Ok progress has been made.... and decided to update my own post.
So some 90 minutes later I eventually came across this post buried in this thread from @RobG (on page 4 written over a year ago) which explicitly makes comment that this library is for CCS and that if one wants to get an Energia compatible library then one must click on this link (http://forum.43oh.co...-library-suite/) which is yet another multipage forum post under section MSP Energia libraries. That takes you to this website: http://embeddedcomputing.weebly.com/lcd_screen-download.html .
So thanks to those who created these libraries... your work is really appreciated.... we just need to find a better way to handle document structure and documentation to help us folks who decide to embark on proving a new idea navigate through this data overload.
