I would assume you need to define the devices somehow so then arduino can recognize them. Is it all through code? If so, that's a bit cumbersome every time you want to add a new device. We can do better for sure.

I think the only device that is connected over I2C is the RTC. Everything else is controlled by digital pins.

And defining the devices is pretty much done via coding (and is very cumbersome, as you mentioned). I think the Jarduino coding makes it a little easier by separating the code into little "units" .... but it is still a hassle to work through.
