Using an Arduino library with other microcontrollers

Hi,

Does any one know if we can use an arduino library with another chip (pic, or stm32 ...).

Is there a way to adapt it and reuse on a non arduino system, just by using the .cpp and .h files.

Thanks.

Welcome to AAC, @guetkar
In general, yes, this is possible. You will probably need to understand the code and what it is doing to adapt it to a different processor. I have done this.

It's got to do with how portable the code in the library is, and whether it uses classes which are not supported by C

I have taken code from Arduino libraries for PICs before - I've also just opened and read the code to debug problems with my code when it came to interfacing with other devices.

As @AlbertHall alluded to - You need to understand the code and what it is doing

Hope that helps :)
