Getting Started with OkapiLib


OkapiLib is installed in all new PROS projects by default. If you are unsure if OkapiLib is installed, you can check the output of prosv5 conduct info-project. Additionally, OkapiLib's header files reside in include/okapi. Once you know that OkapiLib is installed, you can start using it by uncommenting OkapiLib's API header include statement in the file include/main.h :

#include "api.h"

 * You should add more #includes here
#include "okapi/api.hpp" // <-- UNCOMMENT THIS LINE
//#include "pros/api_legacy.h"

All okapi methods are located in the okapi namespace. To avoid typing okapi:: in front of every command, uncomment the using statement in the file include/main.h :

 * If you find doing pros::Motor() to be tedious and you'd prefer just to do
 * Motor, you can use the namespace with the following commented out line.
 * IMPORTANT: Only the okapi or pros namespace may be used, not both
 * concurrently! The okapi namespace will export all symbols inside the pros
 * namespace.
// using namespace pros;
// using namespace pros::literals;
using namespace okapi; // <-- UNCOMMENT THIS LINE

If you don't want to use the okapi namespace, but you want to use unit literals such as 1_in, add the following line to the file include/main.h :

using namespace okapi::literals;


If OkapiLib is not getting downloaded from GitHub correctly during installation, you can download it manually here and then install it by running prosv5 conduct fetch path/to/ Once OkapiLib is installed, try creating a PROS project again.
