[Arduino] Add a Third-party Library for an Arduino Extension

This page describes how to add a third-party library when you use mBlock 5 Extension Builder to create an Arduino extension. You can write a library (for example, test.h) and add it for an Arduino extension.

Step 1: Upload the library file

Click the Transcode settings tab on Extension Builder as shown in the following figure and click + in the Source file area to upload a file.

The names of the uploaded files are displayed as follows:



Step 2: Reference the file

Click the Block settings tab, and then click the Upload transcode tab. Quote the name of the uploaded header file in the include: field. Ensure that you enter the file name with quotation marks, that is “src/OfflineBroadcast.h“.


You can download the following Upload Mode Broadcast example extension, which is created for Arduino, and import it into Extension Builder for reference.
