2018-08-26 (Su) Emergency Rotary Keyboard EmerKeyB

Pins on the controller board were not recognizing inputs on two of the pins, one of which had already been wired to the pre-made breakout board. Fortunately, a commercially available breakout board was brought with the kit so testing could resume with a temporarily wired unit.

Testing with a commercial board

Code was started. The first task was to recognize the encoder and which direction it was being turned. This had been done with a library for the OpenVectorKB but it seemed simple enough to do with code. Still, on the first day, some base code was written but only rubbish came out when I tried to recognize the difference between clockwise and counter-clockwise, aka, anti-clockwise or widdershins if you're really old-school.
