Just thought I’d share a simple little mashup I made between two of the Adafruit Learning System Raspberry Pi Tutorials. I’ve never done anything in Python before (only C++ and other languages), so this might look sloppy, but it seemed to work. I’d appreciate any suggestions on how to clean it up. I’m especially unsure about the inclusions (or as you may call them, imports?).
I combined the 16×2 LCD tutorial with the email LED tutorial to get the LCD to display the RasPi’s IP (I was running headless) and how many unread emails I had in my Gmail inbox.
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.
