        Following the instructions at https://github.com/EnviroDIY/Libraries, I’m entering the following command into a VSCode/PlatformIO terminal: pio lib -g install https://github.com/EnviroDIY/Libraries.git#platformio.

        I get this result: “Error: Could not load broken JSON: C:\Users\Dave’s Desktop\.platformio\lib\_tmp_installing-skmgx2-package\library.json”

        Following is the terminal output:

        PS C:\data\Mayfly\PlatformIO initialization> pio lib -g install https://github.com/EnviroDIY/Libraries.git#platformio

        Any ideas on how to correct the error?

          Oh dear. That definitely *is* a problem. And that’s entirely my fault; I hadn’t error-checked that json in a long time. It should be fixed now.

          Just FYI, there’s a lot in that library bundle.
