Introducing the ArduinoJson Troubleshooter
07 June 2021
As you can see in the navigation bar, there is a new tool on the site: the ArduinoJson Troubleshooter. This tool will help you resolve the most common issues by asking you a series of questions. The screen capture below shows two possible paths of questions.
Previously, I added this information to the FAQ, but I realize that the FAQ was getting so big that nobody read it anymore. That’s why, a few years ago, I decided to extract the How-To’s and the Issues from the FAQ. But as time went by, these new pages grew to the point that I hesitate to add any new information in fear that people would stop reading them.
That’s why I decided to create the ArduinoJson Troubleshooter. Now you get one entry point for all your problems. You don’t have to look through the site; you just need to answer the question from the Troubleshooter and sometimes follow its instructions.
Currently, it contains a hundred questions and answers, but I plan on adding more as time goes on. The content isn’t new because it corresponds to what was already present on the site and the answers I gave in the GitHub issues. However, it’s presented in a convenient way, and I’m pretty sure you’ll love it.
When it doesn’t have the answer to your problem, the ArduinoJson Troubleshooter invites you to create a GitHub issue and produces a summary of your replies that you can include in the description of the issue. In the future, I may add this summary as a requirement for every question on GitHub because it would save time for everyone.
Please give it a try, and let me know what you think.
