What are the open source C++ library for microbit?

Hi,Boy.I don't want to use the micropython library for microbit. Because micropython takes up a lot of space. So,now I'm looking for some C++ libraries for microbit . Do you have any recommendations? :lol:

Hi,

Arduino IDE? See https://github.com/sandeepmistry/arduino-nRF5.

Thanks. The arduino-nRF5 have PIN define file only . I find another Full open source library :https://github.com/lancaster-university/microbit-dal/ Then,Is there any better library than this?

Yes, the microbit-dal from Lancaster is probably a very good starting point.

Really the next step from there is to go directly to either mbed or nrfx, but then you'll be doing everything manually. The microbit-dal is very straightforward to use (especially if you're using it with the mbed tools like yotta).

Yes.I use the microbit-dal a few days,that very good. But I have a problem: What interrupts from the microprocessor can still be used and are not yet occupied by anything from the microbit-dal library? I need to be able to check for events that occur with a rate of 2kHz or I need time interrupt events to do thing,Like Serial port sends data regularly. There seems to be no API in microbit-dal library.
