I’m developing a new open-source blog platform called Preposterous and I did a write-up on building a Preposterous server using a Raspberry Pi. Preposterous is a great fit for the Pi because it doesn’t
require a database server or big application stack, just a basic working Python install and something that can serve static HTML files (the write-up uses Python’s built-in SimpleHTTPServer). I thought the post might be a good fit for the Adafruit blog on #piday.
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.
