Is there any way to declare where are 3rd party library are installed?
The usual path for those in Arduino IDE ("sketckbook/libraries") are not found.
It is not useful to move all needed libraries into lib folder for each project, when those are already installed ad recognized by Arduino IDE.

Yep. This feature is a must. So it will be added in the next version.

Hi Nailxx. Are you still planning on implementing this feature? Mind if I have a go at it if you don't have it already in flight? Thanks. Jason

Yep, I'll try to do it this week. Unfortunately there is no so much spare time.

mchughj commented Feb 15, 2013

I totally understand the lack of free time. I went ahead and made this change:


I'm new to a lot of things in the github world so I don't quite know how this works. If this was what you were thinking of doing but want some changes then let me know and I would be happy to make whatever modifications you feel are correct. If this isn't what you wanted at all then just let me know. :)

Thanks! It looks like what we need.

Will look more precisely and do the merge soon.

mchughj commented Feb 17, 2013

Sounds great. Please let me know if you think I missed anything and I would be happy to make additional modifications.

The default directory for OS X installations is ~/Documents/Arduino/libraries, could you also include that directory?
