Re: Is there a way to have a local version of a header file?




Arduino is basically a simplified/streamlined cross-compilation
toolchain with very tightly coupled IDE integration.

I'd just provide a .sample and tell people what to do with it in the
README. The alternative is to provide config.h as is and tell people
to use "git update-index --assume-unchanged" immediately after cloning
to ignore changes to the file, but this is prone to people
accidentally committing credentials.
