This repo contains the custom package_*_index.json files that can be used to add new third party boards to the Arduino v1.6.4+ IDE.

To add MySensors to Boards Manager list, go to IDE preferences, and at the bottom of the dialog add the following URL into "Additional boards managers URLs:" field and hit OK:

Arduino preferences dialog

For the Sensebender Gateway, you'll need to install the Arduino SAMD board as well. Otherwise, you'll get this error:

The current selected board needs the core 'arduino:arduino' that is not installed.

Command to update / build the MySensors board package

The scripts are written in Python and require Python 3.4 or later.

pip3 install --user click gitpython

Run the check-updates command to have the tool scan the source package repositories and compare their platform.txt versions to the versions published in the board index. The tool will alert you of packages which are not up to date in the index. Run the tool as follows (use python, not python3 on Windows in all the subsequent commands):

python check-updates

To update the MySensors packages run the following commands:

python update-index "MySensors AVR Boards"
python update-index "MySensors SAMD Boards"
python update-index "MySensors nRF5 Boards"
