stm32duino library for VL530lox LIDAR sensor

Hello,
I tried to find VL530lox sensor library to work for bluepill board. So far I could not get one. There are few working well with Arduino, but when I tried it gives some error in Wire.write command.
I don't have enough knowledge in C++ and limited knowledge for C.
Any help or guideline will be appreciated.
Thanks
raufjay

You will need to provide a lot more information than that. :D For starters....

Which library are you using?

Where did you download it from?

*Exactly* what is/are the error or errors you get?

Do you have a link for the datasheet for the VL530lox module?

google gives a single result
https://github.com/pololu/vl53l0x-arduino
VL53L0X library for Arduino
This is a library for the Arduino IDE that helps interface with ST's VL53L0X time-of-flight distance sensor. The library makes it simple to configure the sensor and read range data from it via I²C.

that's not the lidar i expected, mine revolves :lol:

found the datasheet, and interestingly it is from ST!

but no, i don't think it works as a scanning lidar, more as a laser range detector
