2018-08-27 (M) Emergency Rotary Keyboard EmerKeyB

Code written yesterday was given some more work and it could reliably determine which direction the encoder was being turned without relying on a library. This was a fun exercise but it probably shouldn't have taken as long as it did.

Simple code with reliable output

Before this point, the keyboard library for Digisparks was being used as the primary feedback for debugging. After looking farther into it, there was almost no documentation and only one sparse example. For some simple sensor feedback, this would be a suitable device since it can output characters and strings, but anything beyond that isn't described. For example, there's no mention of arrow keys, delete, backspace, or any other non-printing element. This project relies on those non-printing elements so another bit of hardware will have to be found.
