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.
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.
