SdFatSequentialFileRK

Library to make it easier to use sequentially number files (like log files) on SD cards on Particle Devices

Example

#include "SdFatSequentialFileRK.h"

SerialLogHandler logHander;


const int SD_CHIP_SELECT = A5;
SdFat sd;
PrintFile file;

SdFatSequentialFile sequentialFile(sd, SD_CHIP_SELECT, SPI_FULL_SPEED);

bool generateFile = false;

// Forward declarations
void buttonHandler(system_event_t event, int data);


void setup() {
// Register handler to handle clicking on the SETUP button
System.on(button_click, buttonHandler);

}

void loop() {

if (generateFile) {
generateFile = false;

Log.info("generating sequential file!");

if (sequentialFile.openFile(&file, true)) {
char name[14];
file.getName(name, sizeof(name));

Log.info("file opened successfully %s", name);

file.println("testing!");

file.close();
}
else {
Log.info("file open failed");
}

}
}

// button handler for the SETUP/MODE button. Generates a new file each time it's pressed
void buttonHandler(system_event_t event, int data) {
generateFile = true;
}

You need to specify the chip select pin for the SD card reader. You also need to create a SdFat object. You'll also probably want to create PrintFile or FatFile object. These are pretty typical for applications that use the SdFat library.

const int SD_CHIP_SELECT = A5;
SdFat sd;
PrintFile file;

SdFatSequentialFile sequentialFile(sd, SD_CHIP_SELECT, SPI_FULL_SPEED);

To use a file:

if (sequentialFile.openFile(&file, true)) {
char name[14];
file.getName(name, sizeof(name));

Log.info("file opened successfully %s", name);

file.println("testing!");

file.close();
}
else {
Log.info("file open failed");
}

The true parameter to openFile means create a new sequentially numbered file. Pass false to continue using the largest numbered file.

Using PrintFile object allows you to use standard Wiring Print functions like you would to Serial, TCPClient, etc.. Printing numbers as well as functions like println and printlnf are supported.

Don't forget to close the file when done!
