Installing Blynk in Arduino IDE
This activity will show you how to setup the Blynk platform on the Arduino IDE software. There are three ways to do that:
  1. 1.
    Using built-in library manager in Arduino IDE.
  2. 2.
    Installing Blynk library as a zip file in Arduino IDE.
  3. 3.
    Manually install Blynk library.
  1. 1.
    Use the built-in library manager in Arduino IDE
To install the Blynk library, open the Arduino IDE and click on the Sketch > Include Library > Manage Libraries
Opening the library manager (
Once the library manager opens, search for "blynk" in the search bar and in the version, select the latest one:
selecting the latest version of Blynk (
Lastly, click on install. This may take a while to download and install. Once it is done you can find the new blynk library by clicking Sketch > Include Library .
2. Install Blynk as zip file in Arduino
Download the Blynk library from the following link:
Once you have downloaded the zip file, don't unzip it. Just leave it as is
In the Arduino IDE, navigate to Sketch > Include Library > Add .Zip Library
Once prompted, add the zip file.
Return to the Sketch > Include Library menu. menu. You should now see the library at the bottom of the drop-down menu. It is ready to be used in your sketch. The zip file will have been expanded in the libraries folder in your Arduino sketches directory.
