I recently purchased some Tinkerforge bricklets and plan to extend some programs (Hyperion, Boblight and LCDproc) to add support for the devices or rather bricklets (LED Strip and LCD). For that reason I want or rather need to have a Tinkerforge library but unfortunately the guys at Tinkerforge think of it a little different:

We do not offer a pre-compiled library, since it would be a pain in the ass to provide them for all combinations of architectures and operating systems. http://www.tinkerforge.com/en/doc/Software/API_Bindings_C.html

Well, I think it is a pain in the ass not to offer such a library - not even a Makefile to create one.

So I created one: https://github.com/bbilger/libtinkerforge

The current release version is 1.0.0 and you can download it from GitHub, as well: https://github.com/bbilger/libtinkerforge/releases/download/v1.0.0/tinkerforge-1.0.0.tar.gz

Input is welcome!

Have fun!
