We’ve updated the Adafruit Learning System with a new feature that should make it easier to gather all of the components needed to complete any particular guide.
Each guide contains a list of products that are used in order to complete the given steps. Previously, you would need to go to each product page, and add individual items to your cart. Now, as seen in the screenshot above, we’ve added the ability to add products directly to your cart from the guide you’re viewing.
We’ve also added the ability to add all of the products with a single button click! A few of the benefits are to ensure that you’re getting everything needed to complete the guide.
Also, we’ve added the ability to be notified of products that are out of stock, even if you’re adding all of the products to your cart using the one button at the bottom of the list.
And finally, there is an easy link to get to the shopping cart from right within the Learning System. This link is displayed anytime you have anything in your Adafruit shopping cart.
We hope these latest changes will make gathering the components to complete each each guide as easy as possible for you!

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 code.org, 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.
