Scratch GPIO Development

Scratch GPIO DevelopmentCollaborative Git Hub resource “for both coders with suggestions and importantly users (particularly teachers/educators/parents with kids) to provide input into what the handler does and the syntax used to do it.”

I’d welcome collaborators who share my vision to enable 10 year old and younger to make things flash/beep/turn/step using a Raspberry Pi and some cheap components.

Tasks currently in progress

All pins initially to be treated as inputs until a pin out (of any type on/off or PWM 50%) broadcast received and then pin switched into output mode.
Add ability to use PWM (variable power to non-techs) to any Pin.

Add the term “Pulse” to control these e.g. Pulse a motor 100% or Pulse it 50% (instead of old MotorA 100%)

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
