Arduino Nintendo Library


This library is made to connect Nintendo Controllers to your Arduino very easy. Make sure you grab the right hardware, tear off some cables to use your controllers on your PC for example. The requirements are written in the wiki.

Download the zip, extract and remove the "-master" of the folder. Install the library as described here. You can also use the Arduino Library Manager to get the latest version.

Checkout the 'dev' branch to test the bleeding edge of this software. It might now work at all or has a lot of debugging stuff in it.
