In Arduino Eclipse (v3, nightly build) I have not been able to load 'foreign' libraries, those written by me or someone else, so they are not among the available choices in the include-library dialogs.
I've tried adding them to a project as well as adding them as an available library resource using the built-in dialogs for doing so, but I don't see a way to select a library that isn't already included in those dialogs.
My ideal case would be a way for the Arduino Eclipse plugin to use the same boards and libraries as I use in my Arduino IDE installation, so that:
- An upgrade to the Arduino IDE would simultaneously upgrade the core libraries in Eclipse;
- An optional library would need installing in only one place;
- Modifying an optional library would only need to be done once, in one place.
The goal, as in an earlier question of mine, is to seamlessly permit using either IDE to advance a project. However, I'd be grateful to be able to add to my Eclipse installation any library of my choosing.
