OK now that you have Arduino IDE set up, drivers installed if necessary and you've practiced uploading code, you can start installing all the Libraries we'll be using to program it.

There's a lot of libraries!

Install Libraries

Open up the library manager...

And install the following libraries:

Adafruit DotStar

This will let you light up the status LEDs on the front

Adafruit GFX

This is the graphics library used to draw to the screen

If using an older (pre-1.8.10) Arduino IDE, locate and install Adafruit_BusIO (newer versions do this automatically when installing Adafruit_GFX).

Adafruit ST7735 and ST7789

For using the display.

Adafruit ImageReader

For reading bitmaps from SD and displaying

Adafruit AHTX0

For using the Humidity and Temperature Sensor.

Make sure to type the number Zero and not the Letter O when searching.

Adafruit DPS310

For using the Pressure Sensor
