Open source hardware list on Twitter

Pt 2252
Twitter rolled out “lists” so we’ve made an Open source hardware list on Twitter. Makers and companies that create open source hardware. We’re adding folks as we type this, hopefully it will never be “done”.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Join 20,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!

  1. Limor,

    Could we get added to the list?


  2. done!

  3. What list? It’s just the usual twitter drivel, there isn’t a list there.

  4. bert – it seems not all twitter users can view lists yet. if it’s all “drivel” perhaps you’re being spared πŸ™‚

  5. I don’t know if I’m seeing what I’m supposed to be seeing or not, but I have to agree that I’m not sure how useful this is.

    Is a list just an easy way to follow a number of feeds without having to add them individually (i.e., you publish the list and I can add it without needing to add each individually)?

    I like the idea of info about open source hardware, but I guess I won’t bother if it’s going to be full of things like what people are listening to or watching right now.

  6. Can you add in “StackFoundry”? We’re new to the field but have been designing several development board products, with published schematics and board layouts.

  7. hi yann, can you post some links here to the:

    -source code, schematics, board files.
    -the OSH license you’re using, usually CC share-alike, attrib, commercial use allowed

    we checked out the site but couldn’t find it.

  8. Our mistake. In the haste of getting all of all of our BOMs in order, the ordering in place, and working out any last hardware kinks, the web content was on the back burner. Its still largely incomplete (the datasheet isn’t up, the main website doesn’t have complete information, etc), but we have posted the licenses and schematics/board files. The license we are using is CreativeCommons Attribution Share-Alike.

    Thanks for prodding us to get our act together πŸ™‚

  9. no problem, send us links or @us once you post’em!
