You can use the same method to import the keyes_easy plug library.

Pay special attention to:
How to add the necessary libraries for complicated projects?
Sometimes we need to call the library when compiling the code, so how should we add the code libraries? Like IRremote.h
It is very simple. You can follow the instructions below.
To begin with, you can right-click Mixly icon to open the file location. Inside the Mixly directory, find the arduino-1.8.5 folder.

Try Your First Mixly Project - Saying Hello World

Next, we will take our EASY Plug control board as an example:

Hookup Guide

Connect the control board to your computer via a micro USB cable.

Open the Program

Displaying Hello World

Finally, upload the code successfully, open the monitor and set the baud rate to 9600, you should be able to see the Hello World is showed on the monitor.
Congrats! You make it !
