Unified driver and library framework for Meadow applications.
Branch: master
Clone or download


Meadow.Foundation greatly simplifies the task of building connected things with Meadow, by providing a unified driver and library framework that includes drivers and abstractions for common peripherals such as sensors, displays, motors, and more. Additionally, it includes utility functions and helpers for common tasks when building connected things.


You can read more Meadow.Foundation and how to get started in our beta developer site.

Refer to our Meadow.Foundation Peripherals Status spreadsheet to track the progress of all the peripherals we're supporting in our latest version.


To use Meadow.Foundation, simply add a Nuget reference to the core library (for core helpers and drivers), or to the specific peripheral driver you'd like to use, and the core will come with it.

nuget install Meadow.Foundation


Meadow.Foundation, is open source and community powered. We love pull requests, so if you've got a driver to add, send it on over! For each peripheral driver, please include:

  • Documentation - Including a Fritzing breadboard schematic on wiring it up, sourcing info, and API docs. Please see other drivers for examples. Documentation is hosted on the Wilderness Labs DocFx site.
  • Datasheet - For the peripheral, if applicable.
  • Sample - Application illustrating usage of the peripheral.

Publishing Nuget Packages

To trigger a new build:

  • Go to project properties in VS 2017
  • in the Package tab, increment either the MAJOR or MINOR Package version.

The CI job will pick up the changes, pack, and push the Nuget package.
