We’ve released a new library that anyone owning a BeagleBone may find useful. It’s a Python library to interface with the pinouts of the BeagleBone. It’s designed to work very similarly to the RPi.GPIO library (originally forked from it!) for those of you that are familiar with that library on the Raspberry Pi.
The library was built and tested with the BeagleBone Black using the Angstrom Distribution on a Linux 3.8+ kernel.
You can access the library at our GitHub repository, and we’ll be releasing a tutorial soon to illustrate how to easily install, and use the library with your BeagleBone hardware.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
