First things first: begin by reading the very helpful note from @philh30 below in post#3. Edge is still in beta, and chances are you don’t really need an edge driver right now unless you just want to play around with the technology.
If you do want one, there is a list of existing custom edge drivers in the community – created wiki, so check there first to see if there’s already a driver for the device you need.
If you can’t find one already written, you can ask here if any community developer would be interested in creating one.
Now that there are a number of community members writing edge drivers, we are also starting to see lots of random requests for additional device models showing up in all kinds of other threads, which gets confusing.
The reason is understandable: edge drivers work best if the specific device “fingerprint“ is included, sometimes it’s as simple as adding just a fingerprint to an existing edge driver. But sometimes there’s more to it than that.
Anyway, this thread is so you can post a request for a community – created edge driver for a specific brand/model. You will need to post the fingerprint information. Also, as @philt notes below, It will also help if you can list the current groovy DTH you are using with the device.
If you have the device already added with a DTH, you can find that in the IDE. Make sure you copy the mfr and model information exactly: capitalization counts. For most developers, you can just post a screenshot. ( I don’t think there’s anyone using a voice reader. If so, they can let us know if they need the information in plain text.)
Please do not post these requests in other threads unless you are just asking that a fingerprint be added to an existing edge driver, in which case post in the author thread about that specific edge driver.
No guarantees that the driver will be created, but at least this will keep the forum organized.
Developers: if you need to ask questions about the device or start a longer conversation, please start an individual topic for it and link to it from a post in this thread. I’d like to keep this thread to a maximum of two posts per device per developer: one requesting a driver, and one responding to that request. (Of course more than one developer might respond, you never know.)
Have fun: it’s a brave new world out there.
If you’re trying to write your own edge driver and you have any questions about that, you can get help in the developer support section:
