How to add Libraries to your Arduino IDE (internally & externally) - Arduino Tutorial #2

In this post, I will show you how to add libraries to your Arduino IDE internally & externally. 

Adding library internally (@4min mark in the video)

To add libraries go to Tools & select Manage Libraries which will open the Library Manager

Under library manager, you can find all the libraries which are installed or you can find various libraries for various applications which you can install

If you find any libraries which are not installed just click the install button to install it

Once the installation is complete close the Library manager and re-launch the Arduino IDE

Adding library from an external source (@4.45min mark in the video)

To install Arduino libraries from an external source download the Libraries from the trusted external source like GitHub

Next copy the zip folder from the downloaded folder and move it to a different folder so that you don't accidentally delete it. (This is optional)

Now go to your Arduino IDE and go to Sketch > Include libraries and select Add Zip Library and select the zip folder which you downloaded

If the library was uploaded successfully you will get a confirmation and you can also find the added library under Include library which is under Sketch
